1/48 Czech FR-1 Fireball

Recommended Posts

Good evening everyone....

This was one of my first goes at multi-media kit. I really like things are kinda off the beaten path. The FR-1 Fireball fit the bill. I "tried" to make it look like a Navy Demonstration Team called the "Firebirds". I like the story of a P-51 pilot having to do a double take because the prop on this plane was feathered and was running entirely on jet power. This kit faught me all of the way. I had what I thought would have been a ton of weight in the front. But alas it wasnt meant to be. Then I realized that I would use the tailhook for it to rest...

Really nicely done John, like the scheme on that! I've got that kit stashed away I think, good looking aircraft!

Don't know that I'd go so far as to say "good looking aircraft", but it sure is a good looking build! And I love those "geometric carrier ID" markings in general. Good job of coercing it into completion!!

John,

The fireball is Quite an IMPRESSIVE build..sometimes some aircrafts look unattractive on the

ground but once in the air they look graceful.

But this looks like a LOVELY bird..

Nice...good job.
