1/48 Lightning F.2A
October 3, 2014 in Aviation
This is the 1/48 Airfix Lightning finished as “King Cobra” , 92Sq. Squadron Leader’s aircraft, RAF Germany, 1972. I built it from the recent Airfix re-issue of the 1997 vintage kit. This is the release that you want to get if you intend to build a late model Lightning F.2A/F.6. Avoid old 1997 first run kits, the decals are not very good. This one comes complete with Cartograph decals for this a/c , a green/gray camo bird, and an overall gray example. I painted it with Floquil Bright Silver enamel and various Humbrol enamels. The only thing I added to this kit were seat belts cut from lead sheet.
