Kit Manufacturer: Tamiya
Kit No. 61052
Type: V-1 Flying Bomb (Fieseler Fi103)
Extras used: OOB (Out of the Box)
Paints and colours used: Tamiya XF-74 Olive Drab JGSDF and XF-23 Light Blue for camouflage (white tack worms technique). XF-1 Flat Black and XF-69 Nato Black for trolley. Final clear coat – Humbrol Matt Cote.
Weathering: Flory Dark Dirt wash. Chalk pastel streaking/smoke effects. Citadel Necron Compound dry brushed for metallic wear and tear on trolley. AK Interactive enamel Rust Stains (for rust effects on trolley), AK Interactive Fuel Stains (for fuel stains). Prismacolor Verithin silver pencil for metal chipping/wear effects.
Verdict: A really simple kit (all on a single sprue) that builds very quickly. Nice fit, recessed panel lines, not much filler required. For under £10 you can’t go wrong and it’s an unusual subject.
