Next superbly built model in our gallery – this time in 1/48 scale. Built by Darek Bondyra.
I built my model using the Arma Hobby 40001 PZL P.11c Expert Set 1/48.I used Bitskrieg accessories: a spinner with a propeller, an engine cover: both inner and the outer ring, wheels, and an oil cooler, while the gun barrels and the venturi nozzle are from Master. I riveted the model surfaces and lightly sanded the wing trailing edges.I chose the “silver 4” with light khaki from spring 1939. The basic colours of the lower and upper surfaces come from the Hataka set dedicated to Polish pre-war aviation. I did not manage to correctly arrange the decal checkerboards, so I painted all the checkerboards and the number on the bottom wing surfaces using my own masks.
To make the base I used thick hard styrofoam covered with a thin balsa on the sides. The electrostatic grass imitates the surface of an airfield.
