    The paint has arrived, great paint but now I am not happy with the brush strokes.
    Stripped again!
    Ordered an airbrush, I will get there in the end.

    Also in the pics for your viewing enjoyment is a Deumer EK1, a P08 byf 41 Luger "Black Widow" and holster.
    The M42 I also recently restored, plus in the background to the right of the piggy bank is an MP40 (not everyday you hear that!)

    Excellent helmet but only for re-enactment.

    Thanks Edwin1,
    It's for display, not re-enacting

    It looks good for what it is, but shouldn't really be a DD with it being an M40.

    Just curious, have you kept track of your total costs on the luftwaffe project? I'm wondering how far away from an actual original you would be.
