It is my last finished model. This MPM model has bad fitting. It is not easy model. :(
I used Mr Hobby colors.

Beautiful model of this elegant failure, nicknamed Lince ( Lynx)!

 

According to Wikipedia: "…after its debut in 1937 the aircraft established several world speed records. However, when military equipment was installed on production examples, problems of instability developed and the aeroplane's general performance deteriorated. Eventually its operational career was cut short, and the remaining Ba.88 airframes were used as fixed installations on airfields to mislead enemy reconnaissance. It represented, perhaps, the most remarkable failure of any operational aircraft to see service in World War II."

 

But your model is certainly the very opposite of failure, in spite of fit problems. The camouflage and the detailing are in a class by itself.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Superb model of a somewhat unusual subject.

I can appreciate that an MPM kit would need quite a lot of work to get that result.

Well done! :clap:

Thanks also to Spitfire31 for the small historical excerpt.

A fantastic result! I love the look of this aircraft, and I have thought about buying the kit. However, I am going to take notice of what you say above "...It is not easy model..." and just enjoy yours!

Thank you very much Mitch;


The fittings are bad, but the clear parts are the worst. I recommend to change these parts.

Vacuum form parts could be considered.

Cheers.
