Here is Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Henschel Hs 129B-2.
Chris built this model straight from the box except for a harness from lead foil with fusewire buckles, braces behind the sliding pilot's seat from scrap styrene and brake lines from fusewire.
Eagle Cals decals (EC#17, Hs 129s) were used on this model, although Chris applied the kit fuselage crosses.
Gunze acrylics were sprayed using an Aztek A470 airbrush.
The dusty finish was achieved by spraying on patches of a mix of Tamiya Buff and Flat Clear followed by a heavy coat of Gunze Flat. The finish was then toned down with a damp cotton bud.
