FAB Ms 406

Just some light relief from the hard work on the Bristol Bergen...

This is my Fuerza Aerea Boliviana M.S. 406.  This is the Hobby Boss Easy Assembly kit in 1/72, built almost entirely OOB (I did give it a DF loop in the normal upper radio antenna position, moving the radio antenna aft - those were the only mods other than markings).  The decals were from Blue Rider Gran Chaco War sheet #2. This represents an M.S. 406 from the First Grupo (hence the Maltese cross insignia on the starboard side). 

Hope you like it!

What a little beauty, the markings are very smart and the physical mods are spot on, altogether very nice indeed.

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.
