ITALERI 1:48 HARVARD MK.IV
An RCAF kite from the Goldilocks Aerobatic Team based out of RCAF Station Moose Jaw (Sask). The team was formed in 1962 and were designed as a parody of the famous “Golden Hawks” team. In 1964, with the conversion of pilot training to new Tutor jet trainers, the “Goldilocks” were disbanded. A nice build requiring very little filler. I modified the 2 pistol grip control columns into spade grips and found out at the end of the build that only the front one had the spade grip. I purchased an Ultracast long exhaust seen on the Mk.IV. The decals came from a fellow modeller and they in turn came from, I believe the Modelcraft 1/48 Harvard Mk.IV Goldilocks kit. The clear parts were a nightmare. If someone makes a mask set for these I would highly recommend purchasing them
