Raytheon U-125A | Sword 1:72


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone

My first post here so I guess it's only appropriate if the subject is a British aircraft (at least to some extent 🙂)

The model is BAe/Raytheon U-125A, a Sword kit in 1:72 scale.  The fit and detail level is typical of short-run kits, with some minor fit issues and not too sharp details. Still nothing that a bit of putty and sanding paper cannot fix.

Painted with Gunze C and Tamiya enamels.

Beautifully done, and your paint weathering effects are exacting!  This is a tough little kit.  I know, because I have it, and have stolen parts from it for another project.  Would you mind advising Mr. Sword to do a straight-up -800 without all the gnarly bumps?

Welcome to the gang!

 

And what a beautiful model! You hardly realise it's been expertly weathered, it just looks 'right'. Nice livery, too. Impressive premiere, indeed.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Very good model! Welcome on BM. Show us more models (this shows that you have "some" experience :) )

Nice work and good job on the weathering. I did the kit a while ago, so I know it´s a hard piece of labour to get such a great result as you got.

I just checked your model here on BM and it turns out it is the one I have looked upon many times on the scalemates during my build :)

It inspired me to make alterations to the tail but I gave up on the underwing containers :)
