Airfix 1/48 Lightning F1 111 Sqn


Recommended Posts

Just cleared this from my workbench, my fourth model since returning to modelling. Learnt a lot from this one, first use of a airbrush, a Flory wash. Kit is straight out of the box apart from 111 Sqn decals and added details to the ejection seat.

They do, and despite their typically British ungainly design, they somehow looked cool (at least until they got pregnant - and useful at last - with the big tank).

As for the kit:

1) This is life when you have young children at home

2) I should have stored them better if I wanted to keep them longer

3) it was just an advanced call on their ultimate fate. Until recently, and my new wife, I was binning the finished kits after some time. It was a way of keeping some free shelf space, and also a reflection that I was more interested in the building process than the finished kit ;)

Nice work again on that icon of Britishness.
