I've just finished beefing up the paint job on a diecast Fabbri / Italeri Stuka so that it fits in with my land elements. It looks, in my opinion, more 'wargamey'. I'll make a better flight stand in the future, so please ignore the one it comes with.

Some will probably think the original is better – do you?

Looks good……nice….a little extra dimension, doesn't look like a toy anymore. It's fine line isn't it ? Did you keep most of the original paint job as a base colour ? And yes a different stand would bring it even further into the wargaming realm.

Yep, basically just highlighted over the top and added some 'shading lines'.
