Greetings Folks,

 

Its been a while since i posted anything following the Matchbox GB.

 

Here is my latest effort, Academy's Thunderbolt Nose Art Edition. The option i chose was the one on the box top the well known Big A$$ed Bird 2 flown by Major Howard Parks.

 

Although this is not as perfect a kit as the Tamiya version it built up without any problems whatsoever IMHO a very nice kit. I built it OOTB but used a set of Hobbyboss decals i had in the stash as Academy's aren't the best in my experience. The entire model is brush painted using Revell acrylics. Masking was a bit of a chore but it appears to have been worth the effort in the end. Here's the pics...

Hi Stix,

 

Thanks for the kind comments. This one was a bit of a mojo booster, and I'm already starting a new build as we speak. 

 

Cheers Greg😎

Hi Neo,

 

No problem if it needs changed but that's the name of the plane so to speak! Strangely enough the the real aircraft received admonishment from the squadron Chaplain who thought it was profane! The Jug retained its moniker despite this.

 

Cheers Greg

Thanks Ian!

 

NMF isn't my favourite to brush paint but it came out ok with a bit of micromesh and elbow grease. 

 

Cheers Greg 👍

Your potty-mouth tendencies showed yet again in that warning about swearing which contained more swearing before I edited it out. :shrug:  As that's the name of the aircraft, and Greg had the good grace to obfuscate it a little, we're ok with that.  Funnily enough, we can tell the difference between a name of something and bad language for the sake of it.
