Sharpening an old Cutlass - finished


Recommended Posts

Finally finished! After being started in 1999, then resting on the shelf of doom until being restarted six months ago. This is my Hobbycraft 1/48 scale Cutlass F7U–3, finished as a machine from CVA-31 on the USS Bonhome Richard in July 1956. As you can imagine, it’s been a bit more challenging than your average Tamiya kit but a lot of fun nonetheless. Full details are in the WIP if anyone is interested. Highlights include a scratch built cockpit , Vac form canopy, detailed undercarriage and gear bays. The model was painted with a mixture of Vallejo and Tamiya acrylics, then weathered with clay wash and oil paint.
 

I hope you like it, sorry it’s a bit picture heavy.

Hello Ferrata,

 

It is beautiful, well done!👍🙏
I like the way you have made the model's back dirty.
