Squadron 1/72 Alien Invasion UFO (SQM-003)

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 
I received this kit through the post the other day and have been itching to start it. Although this is the "Alien` Invasion" kit, it does come with all the weapons for the Luftwaffe version, which is what I am doing this one as 😎

I have made a start, it just about fits in my 40cm x 40cm photo box:

Hi all,

Well all the sub assemblies are together, he has been taped together just for the pictures, I have left the weapons off until she is finished as no doubt I would break them off at some point 😎

Still needs some filling and sanding in places, but should be ready for painting soon.

 

Thanks for dropping by 👍

Thanks Darren 😀

 

Hi all,

I have made some progress on the "bridge" but there is still lots to do most is still in primer, I decided to do the Nazi flag on the roof as it has circular panels and made sense to me, however the Swastika looks a smidge anaemic 😂

I found out about that last week mate, got a FB warning after I posted pictures of my 262 on a stand "you have been reported for offensive content", anyhoo...

I have put tape over the portholes so I don't have to mask all the windows, they will be filled at the end:

Hi all,

Tonight has been priming, pre-shading and marbling...as she is sooooo big this took about 2 hours to pre-shade and marble 😫

The under side will be finished in RLM 76 Pale Grey, I am thinking about perhaps doing some mottling around the side of the bridge...but I am not sure 🤔
