Trumpeter 1/32 English Electric Lightning

Recommended Posts

Here's the next entry for my back catalogue, this is a fairly recent build (early 2021), that just hasn't been added to my library yet. This is Trumpeter's 1/32 English Electric Lightning, with Aires resin cockpit and exhausts. I decided on the extras for this one because the kit cockpit was a bit spartan and it's one of my all time favourite aircraft. The kits pretty easy to put together, no real problems encountered other than the well documented lack of decals for two of the same missile, leaving you either with two mismatched missiles or some improvisation to do. I've painted it to one of the schemes from the box as I liked the red and chrome arrangement and don't have anything else that looks like it. Hope you enjoy.

A most impressive Lightning! I really like how the panel joints are just hinted at,not those starkly black ones that some modellers seem to prefer.


Beautiful modelling!


Kind regards,
