Greatly abbreviated WIP here

This is the Kittyhawk 1/32 Bell Airacobra kit converted to my interpretation of an  RAF Airacobra MK1

The WIP lists all the changes I made

Kit was painted with Xtracolour paints using masks by Maketar for the codes and national markings

Exhausts and wheels came from Mastercaster, and all gun barrels came from Master save for the 20mm cannon barrel which is aluminium tubing

Whilst the kit does not fall together out of the box I had little trouble with the assembly

Thanks to all those that fallowed the build

Bruce

I don't like very much the real plane... but your model is very good.

I like the weathering. :clap:

If there's a nicer RAF Airacobra model out there, well I haven't seen it. Bruce, that's just turned out amazingly well. All your excellent modelling skills have come to the fore with this build. The weathering is extremely realistic. 

 

Congratulations and well done..  Dave

Looking very nice! Really like the weathering!

I've recently received a Hasegawa 48th scale kit from a very good friend, didn't know which livery to build from this kit. Until now! Thanks for the inspiration!

Awesome build and photos. The half open side Windows in the doors and the open engine are a nice touch.

The aircraft Looks great in RAF Colors.
