I started my FSK Zero build this past weekend. Got it from ebay for an amazing $30 bucks!!
The kit is still the old version and the amount of work involved is a bit overwhelming for someone
who never built something like this. The firewall is gonna be a bit challenging to get into position
the correct way and the suggested battery compartment sucks so I'll probably build a proper battery tray.
I started off with the cockpit area and spent a good 4 hours trimming, cutting and filing. This plane really
doesn't help in this department. I'm in no rush to finish it so I'll take my time hoping I won't mess up.

This planes looks awesome out of the box but I wanted to add some details to make it even more interesting. One of my main dislikes was the black exhaust color so after a trip to the LHS I used some tamya paints to liven it up.
XF-3 flat yellow for the border and TS42 Light Gun Metal for the exhaust. The colors where a perfect match. For the control horns and antenna I used XF-58 Olive Green and it was a pretty good match.
For the weathering I used Tamya Weathering Master B Set Item No：87080. The brush is too small on this set so I just used a big paintbrush. For the silver chips I used a regular craft store silver marker and my finger.
It looks nice and dirty now. Hope you enjoy it.
