RAAF Kingfisher

This is the Kittyhawk Kingfisher converted to an RAAF aircraft by deleating the hole in the front windshield, adding a ring and bead sight, adding sway braces to the bomb racks, adding an extra strake to the main float and modifying the water rudder linkage.

This kit gets some bad press which I generally agree with however nothing that can prevent a nice result.

Painted in Alclad and AK Extreme  Metal.

Very nice result on a very beautiful plane. I specially like the at least for me unusal RAAF paintjob. The worn walkways look great and the "used" finish screams: salt, water and drops from seagulls :).

Yep Bevan, look forward to seeing you there! I think Eric's Demon will be hard to beat though.
