Hi fellow model builders. I'd like to show you my latest build. This time it's the 1/48 Lightning from Airfix. I think it's a wonderfull kit to start with. I found the kit a bit lacking in the rivets department so I decided to give it the full treatment. On the real aircraft the rivets aren't very visible but I feel it just makes the model more interesting to look at. I found a few photos on the internet of the real plane with an open engine bay which I found really interesting. To my amazement CMK has a very nice recin engine in their range. Lucky me! It's simply a gem of a casting and closely resembles the real engine. Everything was primed with Alclad black primer. The engine was painted with several shades of Alclad and the colors on the plane are from Gunze. This is one of the older releases. This meant the decals are close to useless. I used an aftermarket set from Xtradecals and alle the white stripes were masked off and airbrushed. Weathering was done with AK washes and pastel powders. This kit was a real joy to build. Thank you for watching.
