Looks cool, Paul.

Don't know if it's an age thing or a language thing, but please could you please elaborate on "whiff" for this old guy?

whiff = what if?

as in 'what if this had happened?' or 'what if they had built this?' or 'what if they had done it this way instead?'

i used to have a long running story line that let me build unusual schemed air craft, havnt added to it for a few years but im doing this for a 'whiff GB' on another forum and its got the creative juices going again and i might just reboot the saga

the one thing i like about whiffs is that you can use whatever colours you want to make whatever scheme you can think of and no one can tell you its wrong lol lol

needs a little touching up then i can do some decaling then a matt coat and get it on some wheels

so just had a minor glitch
he decals i am using are some left over from an airfix stuka from a couple of years back
the ones for the topside with the white background started to break up so i ended up using the ones meant for underside so they have ended up looking like modern low-vis................and since they ended up on the brown bit of the camo they arnt very visible at all

Little paint sure helps the stark look .

In my world, WHIFF translate to 'imagineering'. Only my stuff often will defy physics !

and finished,..............

cheap and nasty kit, as you would expect from PM, main bug bear was the decals, some left over from a Stuka years ago, the white ones broke up so had to use the plain ones as low vis one
awkward shape to photograph lol

more pics and a back story in the finished thread
