Northrop BT-1 - 1:72 Valom "Yellow Wings" part 1

Recommended Posts

Hi

This is my first gallery in this forum, so maybe few words about me. I'm from Poland and I'm mainly building americans planes. I like putty for plastic and send paper ;) , so my last model is Northrop BT-1, which released VALOM. The build thread can be found here.

Fantastic work !!!

I also love those "yellow wings", the most colourful period of the US Navy.

Those aircraft are like jewels !!!

G'day Jaro. Your BT-1 is as good as the other two models that you have posted recently, such a contrast to the dull and grimy aircraft operated by most of the world's air arms to day. There is some great colour footage of these types in the old Clark Gable movie "Dive Bomber" that can be found on You Tube.

Great Work, Trev.
