Italeri 72nd scale Hudson Mk.IVa, 6 Sqn, RAAF, New Guinea, 1943

Recommended Posts

Hello Folks,

Here is my second Hudson finished! Built straight from the box apart from the decals as the codes seemed incorrect and were replaced by some from the spares box instead. I have a feeling that the serial A16-123 my have been proved incorrect for this machine too, I`m still looking into it. Just like my recent RAF Hudson,.....this has to be one of the hardest kits that I have ever built and the eagle eyed amongst you will realise that some of the flap runners are missing,........the model has been sat on and off the shelf of doom for a couple of years and during that time these fragile parts have succumbed to the carpet monster who is unfortunately very prevalent in my house at the moment,,..or is it just my butter fingers? Anyway enough blurb,......it isn`t one of my best but here it is, warts and all,...my Aussie Hudson;

I hope you like it and next up will be a couple of Vengeances,.....which I must crack on and finish,

Cheers

PS- Just realised that I lied,.....it isn`t straight from the box as the mid upper turret came from the Revell Halifax kit because it is a more accurate shape than the Italeri turret!

Looks good Tony! :goodjob:

The kit is a blinkin' menace isn't it?! I get the impression that something went very wrong when they made the moulds.

The serial supplied with the decal sheet is indeed wrong - the aircraft was actually A16-129. I ended up cutting up one of the other serials to provide the last number. It's a different style but as it's hidden by the tail it's not really noticable.

Here's my effort.
