AgustaWestland Merlin – Airfix 1/48th
October 26, 2015 in Aviation
Here’s Airfix’s 1/48th Merlin, built out of the box with the exception of an Eduard cockpit set.
This was tricker than I had anticipated, with the tolerance between parts being very fine and many pieces needed a quick sanding in order to get a perfect kit.
That minor issue aside, it went together well, and makes for a large and impressive model.
Painted with Xtracolur enamels, and decals were as came in the kit.
Also, it is the first helicopter I’ve ever built!
