Gates Learjet 1/48

November 18, 2012 in Aviation

This is the Revell (Hasegawa) Gates Learjet in 1/48 scale.

Despite its age the kit is really nice, well ok you’ll have to live with the raised panel lines. This is my only airliner/bizjet so far and I built is just because I like the look of the aircraft, it looks both speedy and elegant. Actually I think I could live with a Falcon 10 or a Citation as well

Fit was good but the plastic was a bit on the brittle side. As with most Revell models the decals was really nice. Even though the model is not up to competition standard I like it and it stands out just by not being a fighter aircraft!
Hope you like it.
