De Havilland Sea Venom 1/32 by Revell / Matchbox Hello an Welcome to the "long time coming" RFI for my build of the De Havilland Sea Venom 1/32 by Revell or Matchbox which ever takes your fancy. This particular one is the Revell boxing kindly sold to me for next to nothing by the very generous @rob Lyttle . I do hope that I have done her justice dear sir. The WIP can be found HERE. She was a blinder of a kit with lots of things to add to get her the way I wanted but the foundations were good which was all I needed. Shes a lot bigger than I though for a 1/32, the cockpit had not much detail to speak of so pretty much all of it is scratch built. I used: Tamiya glue, acrylics and sprays. Flory washes. Lots of plastic card and wire. and plenty of help from the wonderful BM hive mind. ( Thanks guys you know who you are ) Special thanks to Chris Sandham-Bailey for the massive amount of reference shots. So without further ado I'll get on with the pics in no particular order taken this morning ( Friday 13th ) in a lovely Autumnal back garden in the Mid West of England. Get a cuppa, there are loads. And that Ladies and Gentlemen is that. I hope she is pleasing to you, she was a pleasure to build and I'm happy with most of what went on. Thanks once again for all the help and Companionship along the way. That's the best bit. ( The Journey ) Take care and as always dear chums. Happy Modelling. Johnny.
My latest off the production line Revell 1:32 Sea Venom as FAW.53 from HMAS Melbourne 724 NAS 1962. Not a bad model but shows it’s age in lacking the fine detail of modern kits and assembling the engine into the fuselage was a right pain. But I’m pleased with the result and must thank @NAVY870 for the helpful posts, pics and assistance. I’d already decided to go Australian but the help of @NAVY870 just reconfirmed that decision.
