Blackburn's addict ?? Get in for a Firebrand !!

Recommended Posts

Hello Dears !

One more lunacy from CC, You both know that I'm found of the Blackburn made beauties !!

You know what ?? There's one cure !! Buy and build !!

First a pic of my tiny village soaked in the fog for all the day...

The church only is getting out of this sea of clouds !

Ardennes cold... 0° and moisture :cold:

Well let's talk about this one, far less bucolic !!

royal-navy-blackburn-firebrand-dd815-air-to-air-the-aviation-photo-company

I buy this kit at SMW, I would have a Mk V too but my wallet say "Stay quiet you stupid CC"...

I had missed a 1/48 TSR 2, so... It's a kind of candy for me !

First resin kit for me too, I know, I know, I've told that I would'nt start another kit, but now, Crisp @Ex-FAAWAFU has entered the game...

one temptation too far...:crap:

Here's the box !!

I wait now to see the Blackburn Shark... Next year as they said

It look like a good kit, I'm amazed, let's have a look

Destruction sheet is at least basic !!

But the low number of parts do permit it !

IMG_20200125_205926

Paint scheme is limited to one aircraft, there hes been only 12 builts after all

IMG_20200125_210334

half fuselages and landing gear in white metal, no bubbles, precise mouldings, look good !!

Tailplane and wheel wells doors

IMG_20200125_210428

Really thin parts and sharp edges !!

Wings

IMG_20200125_210523

In two parts since this one is to be a folded wing one

I don't know if I will use this, the knob is reinforced with metal but the wing is heavy...

Now that will be sad not to use these detailled wingfolds.

Parts are packed in tiny plastic bags but no one is broken !! Until now... :worry:

IMG_20200125_230129

huh, gun barrels  are not well finished, but it will be easily fixed !!

The fit is better than on some injected kits !! 

IMG_20200125_210809

Look good to me !!

Now will I use use thje cockpit as such ??

IMG_20200125_230139

It look a bit too small !!

I will now search for more pics of "Da Beast" before making a decision !!

May be that the Admiral will jump in the blackburn's poole once again now !! 

You know I'm talking about ?? @Martian Hale or maybe our Dear @general melchett

Who Know ??

This one is interesting too since I must have some Yellow P somewhere...

 

THE ROYAL NAVY DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR

But this ons suffered of a crash, pilot killed...

Now guys !!

A sound advice.. CC approved !!

Have a great sunday !!

Sincerely.

CC

Seems a pretty reasonable kit of a typically aesthetically-challenged Blackburn design, CC. Looks like a Yak-7 was rear ended (hard) by a Piston Provost before being side-swiped by a Defiant and gently nudged by an early Spit. Wonderfully awkward....look forward to progress.

I thought you were trying to clear your shelf of half built kits?

Must be the Chimay.....

I will be watching your build with great anticipation- I took the coward's way out and have the 1/72 injected Valom kit.
