Airfix Vanguard 1/144
June 2, 2016 in Aviation
I’m bran-new to the site and I like
very much the things that I see here
as well as the different “philosophy” of this forum
more easy and opened to all.So thanks for your welcome…
This little Vanguard has been painted in enamels
using a set of Bea dedicated colors from Extra colors (the wings red and the belly grey)
and decals by Two-Six.Using the airfix clear parts was clearly a mistake (clear plastic+cyanide glue = FREEZE !).
I was inspired by a beautifull model posted on britmodeller recently that had a very nice
“grey-blueish” fuselage (instead of white) even if my own Vanguard is no match for that
eyecandy-awardwinning-model it’s still from the Masters that we get our inspiration.
I also built the Airfix Trident for an old friend retired from Bea/British Airways and who had passed qualifications for these machines.The Trident, it seems
has made a great impression on all the staff categories who worked on it .
Cheers and happy modelling to all
