Collect-Aire 1/48 XYF2Y Sea Dart Jet Skiing anyone?

Recommended Posts

MY final build for 2021 Collect-Aire's 1/48 XYF2Y Sea Dart.

For the most part straight out of the box I did print  new bang seat, cockpit panels and afterburner cans. The striping was masked and painted(more than once)











 The WIP can be found here:

Thanks for stopping by and having a look see. All comments, suggestions and general mayhem are always welcome. 

So until next year. Keep on modeling!:pilot:

Nice work on that! :clap2:


Quite the unusual aircraft, it will stand out in the display cabinet.

Thanks! With all the test aircraft subjects on the shelf its turning into quite the menagerie.

I'm overwhelmed by the complexity of the masking. Well done.

Thanks! There were a bunch on redos on that masking for sure. But eventually got it to sort itself out.

Lovely build Loren, congratulations. I must admit that I haven't seen this aircraft before... 🙃


Thanks Serkan. You know me, never a dull moment when it come to  building "old" subjects. Sometimes the more obscure, the better.

A screaming loud SeaDart!


Great result!

It does seem to want to  sneak up behind you to smack you up the side of the head all the while screaming.... "I'm Here!"

Still trying to fathom what they were thinking when they did the paint job. But it was San Diego in the early 50's, so go figure.
