HP Jet Provost T3a

Posted (edited)

Hi all

 

I have been working on this little gem of a kit.  This is a lovely kit to put together and looks the part.  Slightly simplified without some scoops etc on the top of the fuselage but very pleased with it.  Built OOB apart from a small whip aerial on the lower port forward fuselage and the headlights were drilled out with a round burr and painted and filled with lazer bond glue.  Brush painted with Humbrol enamels.  Great Value for money Kit from Airfix

 

Hope you like

That's a lovely little beauty. Very neat finish.

Thanks PP, the red and grey went on well, the white on the other hand was a bit of a so and so and took 4 coats.

 

All the best

WOW, looks superb. This has been a kit I've been meaning to get hold of for a while now. You've certainly done it justice.

Thanks Mark, I can thoroughly recommend getting one as it is a lovely kit and goes together very well. Also it would look amazing with extra detailing.

Brush painted?  What did your dad tell you about fibbing?  My goodness, I couldn't brush paint white that well if my immortal soul depended on it.  Well done, my man!  Well done.

Very nice, tidy JP3 - finish is bang-on, which is especially commendable for a brush-painted finish.  Well done!

Thanks Ad-4N very kind. I have to work in our bedroom at the moment so fumes from an airbrush would be a big no no. It's odd that I have never used an airbrush however I have sprayed a car, a full sized one that is.

Thank you very much indeed. I thin the paint a bit and it levels out better, although it means more coats.

Thanks everyone

All the best

Thanks Tony, very kind of you. It scared me but when I got the kit and was taking a look I just found myself cutting parts off the sprues and thought I would give it a go. The worst part was the many thinned coats of white after that it was fairly simple, give one a go. I have a Dominie, 2 Tucanos and a 48th scale Jet Provost T5 to do in similar schemes

Really got the Trainer bug at the mo.

Thanks fella

All the best

An absolute cracker mate, a wee cracker!

 

As you say, it's a lovely wee kit, goes together nicely and is well worth the money!
