2019 – Models for March

March 2019

This was not a very productive month with a few project being finished off from earlier weeks.

The Compass A300-600 was made from a combination of the 1/144 Braz Models fuselage and the rest from the Revell Beluga kit.  The decals were from Hawkeye, as usual for Australian airliners.

The Yokosuka R2Y1 is the Fine Molds 1/72 kit made straight out of the box.

The 1/72 Sud Aviation Vautour IIB was also made straight out of the box, though be warned that the undercarriage legs are too short and need radical surgery to bring them to the right length.  The metallic finish is the result of airbrushing with about five different shade of AK Xtreme Metal aluminium which I then buffed up with Micromesh.

Toe models that I made earlier are the ancient 1/72 Matchbox Handley Page Halifax B.I and the Matchbox Hawker Tempest F.2.
