Italeri 1/48 Grumman S-2G Tracker


Recommended Posts

Fresh off the bench is the Italeri 1/48 Grumman S-2G Tracker.

 

This is built as a Royal Australian Navy aircraft, using the decals supplied with the kit.

I also added Eduard's interior and exterior PE sets.

 

This is a kit which nearly defeated me multiple times throughout the build. There was a litany of issues, both with the kit itself and self-induced. They really sapped my motivation, but I'm glad I managed to power through.

The Eduard interior detail set really spruced up the cabin - but my clear parts all fogged up on the inside! I'm not sure what happened there (I always use white glue for clear parts etc).

 

My first foray into 1/48 aircraft, and I found it quite time-consuming, and very bulky and unwieldy to handle and paint. I'm now all the more impressed with what the larger scale modelers achieve, but I think I'll stick to 1/72 for a while!

 

Enjoy the pictures, and any critique/advice is always welcome.
