CLASSIC AIRFRAMES 1/48 CANBERRA

Recommended Posts

Good evening everyone  please find below the latest offering.

Here we have the 1/48 canberra from classic airframes.All i can say is it was 'challenging' biggest issues being bad fitting canopy,wings and fuselage.Another major problem was that i boughtthe kit from ebay only to find when constructing the wings i find the wing tip tanks are missing so i decided rather than going without i would try and make some,its amazing what you can do with paint brush handles,see photo's.

The other known problem with thiskit is the whole thing is majorly tail heavy.I filled the nose with fishing weights with a bit more behind the cockpit and it stil tips up.

The build is brush painted as usual with revell and humbrol enamels.

Every time you look at that model for years to come it will remind you of paint brush handles.

Rather natty work with those brush handles and a spiffing build to boot.

Ahh - The Canberra! Such a beautifull plane! :D

Your model of the B-57 version certainly does it justice! :goodjob:

Great work, having built the Classic Airframes Canberra T.17 I know how much of a challenge there Canberra kits are.
