Recommended Posts

Hi comrades!

 

Here is my Lightning F.53 in ground attack configuration. RSAF was the only air force to use Lightnings in real combat. 

 

The build is here:

 

 

Used aftermarket is decals (Model Alliance), Reskit MATRA pods, Master pitot, Aires resin ejection seat, wheel wells and exhaust, Eduard brass, New Ware masks. 

 

The pilons and other additions was scratch built.

That's a great looking Lightning.:like:. The finish is exceptional in the way you have replicated the slightly blotchy appearance on the metal panels that Lightnings seem to have.
