I picked this old kit up at Croppers in Bridlington a couple of months ago, its always well worth a look if you are in the area. I wanted to do something a bit different to an overall Gloss Sea Blue machine as I have done both a -5 Panther and a -9 Cougar so far this year. so the alternative markings provided fitted the bill.

I found some photos online of the machine in the decals, 126275 of VU-1 based at China Lake in the late 1950s but these images showed a different tail colour when -75 was used for ejection seat trials so I went with that. The camera windows were plated over, which give it a much sleeker look that the standard photo nose.

I'm been trouble with Flickr inserting very small images and losing definition when I enlarge them. I seem to have resolved now.,

 

Thanks for looking.

Cheers, re Croppers, it has declined but I was in in February and it had  got better. There is also the 'Mighty Lancer' near the harbour where the Marks and Spencer was. Mainly wargames but has a fair few kits.
