1/32 Trumpeter AV-8B+

Post by PaulN » Wed Jan 12, 2022 9:44 am

Hi

First one for the year and one I didnt really enjoy for some reason , time for a break/change maybe :S

The Trumpeter AV-8B+ finished in the new FS36118 Gunship Grey and FS35237 Blue Grey using Leatherneck decals and an Airies cockpit .Kit is OK ish needed a few airscoop mods along with making the underwing stores fit , the attachment points on the pylons are no where near the holes in the weapons , not difficult but annoying . Airies cockpit needed a lot of filing and fettling to make it fit , then came the decals , for the new scheme they should be in the opposite greys which they are , but , the give you no intake/stenciling so had to use kit decals , not happy with it but it will have to do :grr:

All Xtracolor enamels and Alclad varnish

Thanks for looking

Paul :thumb:

Superb as ever.

Never got beyond Corydorus Julii, personally, but then we both adored all the Catfish varieties :)

Now I must admit to liking any Harrier or AV-8 but that is superb Paul. It might have been ‘difficult’ and decals not to your satisfaction but that is a fine looking aircraft!

👍👍👍
