Hello fellow modellers.

 

This build has been on my whishlist for around 15 years.

The subject is the Gulfstream SMA-3 from the Royal Danish Air Force in 1/72 scale.

Five years back i tryed my luck with the Broplan kit - and failed.

 

I got the RVHP resin kit of the Gulfstream IV and converted it to a SMA-3.

I shortened the fuselarge by 1,2 cm. and got the Spey engines from Shapeways. The decals are from Stoppel Decals (RIP), and i also did little scratch building and rescribing.

 

It was not an easy build. Warped parts, rough surfaces and air bubbles.

 

Despite the challenges, I’m glad that i can finally ad this big bird to my RDAF collection.

 

Thanks for watching 🙂

Try, and try again--that's the spirit.  That's really incredible work on your part!  I sure wish A-Model would give us the earlier, Spey-powered versions of the Gulfstream, which I find more attractive.

Very nice work.  I know resin kits can be challenging but you tamed this one to produce a very nice model.  Besides the model, which is fantastic, I really like your display base.  Top notch.

Thanks  @TheyJammedKenny!

And i totally agree, it would be nice with a decent styrene model of the earlier Gulfstreams 🙂
