1/48 AFV U-2A

Recommended Posts

My secoond lockheed build fopr the year the 1/48 AFV U-2A . Really nice build. My only complaint is the rsaied are on the canopy and the instrument panel.  Overall model painted with Tamiya NATO Black . I went for early CIA scheme that had just the number on the tail. I do have the Howdaw to paint still for it. I did a little chipping of paint with prisma color pencils and a light black pin wash on the gear an d gear bays. Ejony :)

Nice looking SPY-plane. I like the finish, even "boring" overall color looks quite realistic and interesting, and also nice details.

Excellent U-2! I like the smooth finish, and the way the U-2:s were used, a very restrained weathering  seems the safe way to go.


Seatbelts would not come amiss in that otherwise very nicely detailed cockpit… 😉


Good modelling!


Kind regards,

Really nice, the NATO black is spot on. Out of interest, what’s the cone- shaped doohickey in the cockpit where the HUD should be? Super model, congratulations!
