The model, at over 28g, was much heavier than other , similar sized, WW2 models that I have built. The barrel-like fuselage is fairly massive and the short nose required many grams of weight for balance.

The model represents a Royal Navy Martlet used in North Africa in 1942. I tried to give it a dusty, desert-weathered finish.

I covered the model with grey tissue (chalked with light blue) and beige tissue (chalked with light brown)

I made the wings removable with sacrificial balsa spars. This has already saved the model from damage, after a nose dive into the gym floor during trimming.
