Hi everyone,

Recently finished this little diorama of a Chinese J-10 (Trumpeter), along with the PLA fuel truck and some ground crew. Also put the Dreammodel J-10 boarding ladder to good use.

I can't vouch for the accuracy, naturally, but it looks OK! Couldn't find Chinese ground crew, so I raided the Airfix Luftwaffe ground crew stash for a couple of likely lads, and the figure of from the Revell NATO pilots and ground crew kit.

I've been experimenting a lot with weathering and panel lines, etc, and this resulted in a bit of cleaning up and starting again. Similarly, when it gets cold here, the airbrush clogs up! So yes, they may be a little over-weathered, but it was an enjoyable build all the same.

Looking forward to some warmer weather!

Cheers,

Matt.
