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

Notes:

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!

Happy to finish it and something different for a change.

Thanks for looking and happy modelling.

Cheers,
Dermot

Fantastic, we don’t see many of these done, and what a gem you’ve made of it :)

What a nice model. I built the original Heller issue of the -215 in the 1980s and it remains one of my favourite aircraft kits of all time.

After all your trials Dermot, it has turned out really nicely. I have plans to build one of these for a club display mid year. I hope I get the time to finish it.

Extremely nice replica! :clap:

You dealt with the decal issues very well, as far as I can see.

We could do with more of these (the real thing) here in Australia lately. 🙁

Fantastic. Unusual. The first two words that came to mind. Then I noticed the subtle weathering. All round excellent build.

From what I have been led to believe, the kit is an absolute pig - so congratulations for producing such a lovely model.
