Hi everyone,

I'd like to present my ES-3A Shadow by Italeri. I just finished the model yesterday after a 10-month build. The S-3 Viking kit itself is ok, whereas the Shadow specific parts are absolutely horrible and don't fit at all. Im quite pleased with the result, of course some minor bits bug me, but in general I'm happy. I hope you like the model!

That,s a lovely build and finish,the paint shading is superb capturing the wear and tear these low-viz schemes are noted for,and the colourful tail markings really

set it off! Great job.

Brilliant finish there, as stevej60 said you really have captured the weathering perfectly

Great work, the paint finish is spot on. Is that the kit canopy or Squadron vacform?

Hey,

Thankyou very much for the positive feedback, I'm glad you like my model :)

@ Stephen: It's the kit canopy, the only aftermarket I added was Eduard's photo-etched cockpit set and masking set.

Cheers!

Hello Tomcatter,

Yes, I like it alot.

Smart aircraft, well constructed and a very nice selection of pictures.

This is the Lexus under the Carrier Air Wing.

Lovely job - always a bit cautious when it comes to weathered USN stuff as it is often over-done but yours looks "right", to my eyes. Nice one!
