1/48 F-89 Scorpion pictures (finaly)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

it took me a little while but with the help of one of my friends I finaly managed to post a few pictures of my 1/48 F-89 Scorpion from Monogram.

It was build on commission and it was build straight out of the box with the exception of home made seatbelts and a aftermarket decals sheet.

The metal effect was painted with a combination of Alcad II and the new Ak metal paint the other colors are from Gunze and a little wash from Mig products.

I hope you like it.

That's pro level modelling – clean, accurate build and finish, topped off by tasteful weathering that just gives a hint of a working airplane.

Impressive work.

Kind regards,

Joachim

Another nice and impressive model you show us here Rob.

This one I've also seen in the flesh and I was really impressed.

Thank you all for the nice replies.

Andrew the kit has raised panels and no rivets. When I build one for my own i will propably scribe it and add Rivets .

I recently started this on my Buccaneer thanks to a friend of mine(dank je Jeroen en Rene) since then I am completely hooked

Looking great - I love this beast anyway....your markings are very nice too.

If you do one for yourself and rescribe the panel lines: The panels left and right below the cockpit with the 'NO STEP' stencils inside are (so I have heard) all of the same size and do not get smaller downwards.

Great looking model. I have a 1:72 to build and I can't get over how big this aircraft is. I've seen one of these built up and I almost thought it was 1:32.

Someone once commented that everything was big on these except the engines!

Thanks for sharing.

Mark
