I've put the lights on the wingtips, also antenna (from stretched sprue), minor chipping here and there. For the MG's I will buy a Master barrel set. Well, that is for now







Cheers!

Thank you, Oliver!

I decided to make the MG's from brass tubes, 1mm and 0.5mm. The outer two (the shortest) I drilled with bigger drill as the real ones. Primed with Surfacer 1500 and then painted with Gunze Mr.Metal color Dark iron MC 214. polished a bit for metallic shine.
Not like the professional Master barrels, but I like the result and it was fun













Cheers!
