About kit:
Kit quality is terrible and it is a fact.

Like all kits of “ACE” this set is rather complicated to assemble. Most of the details in the burrs. Release from burrs captivity account for almost all the details. For this reason, to achieve a perfectly flat surface is very difficult. Front wheel axle is too low, so I had to remake it to lift clearance.The model is very small and it is very difficult to putty. In a kit there is no glass. A drawing in the instructions of the wrong size. The only plus is the presence of a nice photo-etching. 

I’ve been thinking whether to paint in green or make camouflage . That was to fun i make camouflage “omeba.”

The model was painted with artistic acrylic paint , MIG pigments and artistic oil.
