Revell 1/72 Avro Shackleton MR.Mk.3 WR971

Here's a link to the review of the kit with history of the MR.3 also https://dazjg1971.blogspot.com/2019/10/ ... -avro.html

And my article about the aircraft crewed by my late Grandfather, which includes some details on why I'm depicting this particular MR.3 https://myaviationandgeneralpictures.bl ... -late.html

I'll post images as I progress with the build.

Looking forward to see how this turns out. The Shackleton was always my all-time favourite aircraft, particularly the MR.3, and I have the same kit languishing in a cupboard...

Keep up the good work!

Thanks everyone. The Shackleton is pretty special to me as my late Grandfather crewed them, and had a soft spot for them. WR971, the subject of this model was the only MR.3 he crewed, so '971 was a dead cert to depict.

And one complete fuselage. Now onto the flying surfaces.

Work is progressing on the Shack. She's been painted, and already for decalling. Images to follow later :)
