3rd and Final Revell 1/48 F89C Scorpion-FINISHED!


Recommended Posts

I repurposed the clear stand, cutting small pieces off to use as marker lights

After attaching I took Tamiya Transparent Red and Blue for the wings  and position light on top and left the clear for the side and tail lights

You're right Chris , Thank you. I thought something was unusual but couldn't see it. I went by how the Gear legs fit.. But it's an easy fix.:facepalm:

  • LorenSharp changed the title to 3rd and Final Revell 1/48 F89C Scorpion-FINISHED!

Here's to the final installment in my entries into the 2021 Interceptors GB.

I received my thin brass rod in the Post tis morning I cut 6 4mm sections to replace the 20mm cannon in the nose of the Scorpion. then repaired my main landing gear. I want to thank Chrisj2003 for noticing that, and letting me know. He's a true Steely Eyed Missile Man.

From there just a matter of adding the decals.

With this completed being my 3rd and final entry, I want to thank Enzo, Col. And Corsairfoxfouruncle for organizing this little clambake, and for everyone who  Kibitzed  along and some great comments and encouragement.

You will find my entry in the RFI Gallery and until next we meet Stay Safe everyone and Stay Healthy. Now to work on emptying my Shelf of Doom.

Thank ye Alex. Not too shabby for bashing together some bits of plastic and  globs paint. That's probably the closest I've come to a straight OOB build in a long time.
