Airfix 1/72 Cessna 0-1F Bird Dog
March 10, 2017 in Aviation
Thought for once I would do a quick fun build over a week end. And here it is, the old Airfix 0-1 Bird Dog. What a tiny model for me to be doing. The old decals pretty much fell apart so most are from my spares box. Fit was OK but the clear parts were as thick as the bottom of a Coke bottle. The interior is very sparse but you can’t really see inside either. The only thing I added were the antenna wires made from copper wire.
Gotta hand it to the pilots who flew these in Vietnam as the 0-1 was pretty much a bullet magnet. Those pilots had lots of guts but they really came thru in placing ordnance where it did the most good.
