1/48 E.E. Canberra B.2

by John Healy on January 26, 2017 in Aviation -- 16 Comments

This is the recently reissued Airfix kit finished as a 1970s era Rhodesian example. It’s a simple, straightforward kit to build. As it is a bit light in details, I installed an Eduard PE instrument panel and cockpit set, along […]

Morne Meyer’s outstanding Canberra inspired me to share mine. This is the 1/72 “little brother” to Morne’s 1/48 model. I think this was the first new tool kit that Hornby did after their takeover of Airfix. The shapes are good,it […]

This was one of the many Canberra variants produced by Airfix when they turned over a new leaf & started making their much improved kits. Not perfect but well worth building. I was lucky enough to pick it up at […]
