Hobby Craft 1/48 Bell P-59 Airacomet
February 9, 2013 in Aviation
Since this was my first attempt at building a jet, why not build America’s first attempt as well. Did purchase a True Detail cockpit set and it fit extremely well, the kits office is a joke. Saw a photo of a P-59 with drop tanks so I added those as well, there from a Revell F-80 kit. The decals are stock and I used Tamiya bright aluminum rattle can for paint. Did some outlining with a Pitt pen then covered it with Future. Though not successful as evisioned by the military brass the P-59 did pave the way for America’s entry into the jet age.
