The "Winter Storch" work: Academy-Heller 1/72.

Another fast build, a winter scene with a tiny 1/72 Fi156 Storch. I used two kits to make this model, the Academy kit for the main work and the Heller kit to get the control surfaces, front piece of the nose and propeller; the skis are from scratch. Painted with Tamiya paints. The quick weathering effects were made with oil paints and colour pencils. Finally I applied a Tamiya Smoke shading to enforce the light effect. The satin-matt finish is done with Model Air satin varnish.

  3. Hi Bill,
    I painted the two green splinter camo first. Next I painted the white pattern over it.
    Cheers.
