Tim's T-33 Shooting Star - COMPLETED

Recommended Posts

Joining you with this Hasegawa T-33 Shooting Star kit.

Costing me £2.50 from Kit Rescue at IPMS Avon model show in 2014.

The kit has decals for the Thunderbirds demonstration team - not going that way.

This Heller model from 1995 is the reason why not.

Edited 19 April 2019, now has pilots.

Today Hepster gave me two very tempting decal sheets. Xtradecal X72-120 and X72-121 which are far more interesting.

I'm very torn, between the option with hi-vis red panels, 

And the two-tone grey option.

I like the hasegawa box art!! 

The big Boxcar transport looks great in the colour scheme. 

Check my notes in the GB Reference thread if you want any T33 refs

Liking this one, I like the idea of the 57 FIS  one with the dayglo

The low-vis Hill AFB GREY scheme would be my choice,  but thats just me. Im not very good when Day-glo Arctic Red markings come into play.

Two tone grey option for me! Not sure if you're actually looking for opinions or not! :)

Not really, but that's my current favourite anyway.  Hi-vis markings on the Seastar.

I've just brought my previous T-33 down from the loft, and an Encore F-94 Starfire.

Both built in flying mode, both are looking for pilots.

Yesterday afternoon I airbrushed Xtracolor135 into the nase, tail, and tip-tanks.

Next to fit the canopy, and airbrush a darker grey amidships.

It's come up well with that scheme, it really shows the old girl off to advantage.
