1/72 A-10A Thunderbolt "Operation Desert Storm"
I usually dont do 1/72 scale but seeing this in my stash for the longest time, so i decided to built one for the sake of testing my camo painting technique. & learn new things with modelling camo stuff.
|Duration:||April, 2013 ~ Oct, 2013|
|Paint:||Green, Black Camoed|
Fitting is just nice and dont really required a lot of work to fix just a few putty spots here and there.
Painting the camo posed a few challenges for me mainly regarding my airbrush control as i'm doing the camo freehand.
The initial finish is just too glossy so i decided to tone it down with a few layer of very diluted Sandy Yellow and top it with a coat of Flat finishing.
The marking is from the Operation Desert Storm back in 1991 with a nice nose art to boot.
