Special Hobby Sunderland GR5, 201 Sqn., 1953


Recommended Posts

Special Hobby Sunderland GR. 5 built to test my new decals LHD72039 'Arctic Sunderlands' (they work!). This is PP115 'Charlie' of 201 Sqn, RAF. In August 1953 'Charlie' was almost lost in a glacial lake in northern Greenland after being holed below the waterline. Apologies for the hurried sloppy photosession.

I don't know that I've ever seen anyone duplicate the stain affect on an airplane that sits much of the time on the water. I know it might sound corny, but that adds a lot to the authenticity of an already very nicely done model.
