1/72 Airfix, I modified the nose, fitted brass tube and wire to the prop’s, added antennae and just enough weight for it to sit, finished in Polly Scale acrylics and MM enamels with MM acrylics over Daves decals, Aussie and Badger decals from the spares box.

  1. Allan, I LOVE the Lightnings! Yours is excellent!

  2. Allan, it isn’t often we get to see an RAAF Lightning. Beautifully done! You have quite the theme collection of RAAF aircraft. Real surprise, there! Keep up the good work!

  3. Tell me, Allan…have you ever built anything straight outta the box without any “modifications”…? lol

  4. How are you so prolific?! (another nice one, by the way!)

  5. Great job! You made the old kit shine.

  6. Very nice, good use of various decals. What do you do in your spare time?

  7. Beautiful build, and I like seeing her in a different set of “clothes”. Nice job, great build!!

  8. Thats the old Airfix kit ! Incredible work, love it !
