Short Tucano T.1 (1/48 converted from Hobbyboss EMB-312)

Recommended Posts

 

1/48 Short Tucano converted from hobbyboss EMB-312. 

The following parts are modified:

1\ the original three blade is converted into a four blade propeller

2\ jet pipes are moved to lower front fuselage

3\ the nose section is slightly modified to represent a smoother cross section on the Short Tucano rather than Embraer Tucano

4\ Added a frame and detonation cord to the original canopy

5\ Added the  ventral airbrake, leaving it at closed position

Great work! This looks superb.

 

I almost bid gor one of these kits until I read how much work was needed to make it into an RAF one. I don't have the skill to do what you've done.

 

I wish Airfix would release a 1/48 Tucano and Jet Provost!

Really was dispointed that Hobbyboss could not distinguish Short Tucano from Embraer Tucano. Fourtunately, the configuration and size of the two Tucano remain the same. The fitting and detail of Hobbyboss's EMB-312 Tucano were quite decent, so it make it not quite difficult to do the conversion work.  Hobbyboss provided four propeller blades, one only need to convert the nose cone to make a four-blade propeller. I made the jet pipe out of some spare sprue and place them in holes I made under front fuselage. The detonation cords were made from spare decals from Hobbyboss's Red Arrows BAE Hawk. Airbrake was made of placards

Very nicely done Tucano - lovely detailing, beautiful finish and just a hint of weathering to bring out the surface details.

 

Cheers
