Sword EE Lightning Mk2


Recommended Posts

I built this along with its Mk3 companion as a double build to finish the 1/2/2a/3/T4/T5/6 set.

 

Anyway, nice little kit.  Plently of detail in the cockpit, resin engine nozzles.  As usual with these kits a bit of fiddling needed to get everything lined up.  I replace the ejection seat with a Barracuda version. Master nose probe. Nose wheel and strut Barracuda as the kits were short-shots.

 

I based this kit on photos of one of the 19 Squadron aircraft fitted with the 30mm weapons pack for something a bit different.  The markings and codes came mainly from the spares box.  The blue/white checks I did by paining the blue and using white checks from fantasy printshop on top.

Alclad in various shades for the metalwork.

 

Anyway onto the pics -

Another nice Lightning and again. some thinned black wash to the wheels will add that little bit more to the model. Well done.

Yes, you are right.  I was going to use the Barracuda resin wheels, but due to various factors (life etc)  I ended up using the kit wheels and missed that step out.  I'll fix that some time
