1/72 USAirfix (Airfix) Havoc
September 1, 2013 in Aviation
The instructions say “copyright 1979”. I’ve had this one sitting around for quite some time. Over the years I’ve built at least 3 others in different variants. It was time to just do the version on the box. The build was typical 70’s Airfix, with little detail by today’s standards. The framework on the clear parts was hardly visible. I dipped them in Future, then applied 1/32″ pinstriping decals that I had laying around for slot cars. The result was pretty good. I mentioned this to another modeling buddy, who told me that whenever he paints a model, he paints about a 2″ square of white decal sheet at the same time, for canopy frame. I think I’ll being trying that in the future.
