Hi folks, I've not been idly sitting on my arse for the last two months. I've been building something I've referred to as 'Project X' in the staff area. This is something I've been waiting to build for a few years, and since I was in a rut and wondering what to build, I thought I'd finally put it together. I have to thank John Vasco for his assistance in determining what this aircraft would have looked like, since there's only a chunk of fuse and two engines now left on display. This one will be in Military Illustrated Modeller issue #39, so watch out for it!
This was my first published article that I ever did.. It appeared in the September 2011 issue of Military Illustrated Modeller magazine... Cockpit had wiring and hydraulic lines added (this was before Barracuda's Sidewall upgrade set was on the market), Eduard's Late Mk.IX harness and some of Interior PE set was used. I also added Barracuda's fantastic Cockpit upgrade set, Padded Seat and access door and 4 slot wheels. This scheme is included in the Tamiya boxing, but its incorrect. I was lucky and was able to contact the pilot's son, and he confirmed with me with the correct serial number that I had found during my research. All the markings were painted on with custom paint masks made from Miracle Masks Hope you like!
