Trumpeter 1/48 Supermarine Attacker FB.2

Recommended Posts

Just a quick relaxing build of this... well, let's say "very odd-looking", aircraft. :)

I am aware about all the shortcomings of this kit, but decided to build it anyway. So instead of fixing all small errors, I built it OOB. The only change was replacing of Trumpeter's black-blue roundels. (I used Airfix roundels.)

Some people may say that it is ugly. I would say that it is almost a little cute. It looks a little like a happy penguin gliding on its belly with its wings spread. :)

Painted with Gunze acrylics.

Having started the year with two British jets, I will continue my all-British January with another great jet. I'll be back! :)

Well I think it was a cute looking aircraft and yours is a superb model of it. Very nicely built and painted.

 

Cheers

The jet as such probably wouldn't win a beauty contest - your model on the other side looks great.

Lovely job & a classic scheme.

 

It's not quite ugly, possibly characterful.

Well - I've never thought of that when looking at the Attacker, but now that you've mentioned it, I can see what you mean! :penguin:

It's a great looking model no matter what! :goodjob:

 

Cheers :bye:

Excellent modelling, as usual. If you're not an expert on the Attacker, which I'm most assuredly not, the model certainly captures the essence of the prototype.

 

Kind regards,

One of my favourite aircraft,that's a great build of Trumpeter's flawed but still nice kit.
