Revell CL-415 Fire Bomber

Recommended Posts

Hi all and here's my first finish of 2020 - Revell's re-boxing of Heller's CL-415 Fire Bomber in Canadian Gov markings.

First started for the Flying Boats GB here last year;  never got finished for that but now all done! The short build thread is here but to recap:


Kit: Revell 04998 CL-415

Build: OOB

Paints: Tamiya Pink primer from a rattle can, Revell Aqua Colours with an airbrush. Klear, Flory Models Wash

Decals: From the box...they were shocking. 😧

Extras: 30g of lead sinkers in the nose and Metal u/c set from Scale Aircraft Conversions


The extra kit parts for the 415 model (new engines/Aerodynamic bits) don't fit very well.

I think the metal u/c set is needed as the kit parts are very skinny and not sure the would take the weight.

The decals didn't actually stick and had to be stuck down with multiple coats of Decal setting solution and Klear.


Trying to fit her on the table for a photo was a laugh...just managed it!
