Novo and Matchbox Canberras 1/72

Recommended Posts

Hi guys these two are my contribution to the canberra group build. Iam sorry the Novo is half finished ,but not currently having a digital camera and living at work, meant that I got too far with this one before I could take any pics.Hope no one minds.

This one will be finished more or less straight from the box as B{1}8 XM268 darksea grey,dark green,with black underside,using Model Alliance decals.

The Matchbox one will be finished in Hemp ,Light aircraft grey asPR9 as XH168.

Hi all had a total disaster with the Novo Canberra. I just started decalling with Model Alliance decals, having given the wholw thing a coat of Xtracrylix gloss varnish ,only to have the decal setting solution bleach the black underside white. It was Microscale solution by the way. Never had this happen before ,any advice anyone ? Fortunately I have another kit I can use. I let the varnish set 24 hours.

Best wishes

Hi all also have hit a snag with the Matchbox kit as well .Part 15 the nose cone is missing after 30 years in the stash the box collapsed unfortunately.Unless I can obtain another fairly quickly I will substitute the Airfix 1/72 PR9.

Hope this is OK. Sorry for the chaos

Best wishes

Might be a good idea to use Airfix as the tail planes on Matchbox are the wrong size............ too big, compare with airfix.

Hi all here is my finished Matchbox PR9 in Hemp with Model Alliance Decals. Other wise OOB. I think I over weathered it a bit with Tamyia Smoke.

I used some Mig powders as well ,but my oil streaks etc came out a bit OTT.
