DeHaviland Sea Vixen FAW2

Another 1/48 'Fighter All Weather' representative, on the back of Tom's recent Jav post.

No photos of the cockpit areas. Although detailed, they are truely 'coal holes' and not supportive of pretty pictures.

  1. Nice one Rob, I think this is the first one I've seen on this site but I'll bet it's not the last,very few aircraft can get away with a shark mouth but these look like they were designed with it in mind ! ,well up to your usual standard.

  2. Good job ther Rob, Its nice to see some of the new Airfix kits being posted.

  3. Rob,
    Outstanding. What a beautiful job you did on this. This is what would be called typical Of some British airplanes, "so ugly it's pretty". I would hate to be the second seater in this thing. It would be more claustrophobic than a submarine.

  4. very well done

  5. Rob, I love it ! The Sea Vixen has always been a favorite, and you hit a home run with this one ! I have to wonder why the Brits put the cockpit on the left side of the fuselage, yet they drive on the right...hmmm?

  6. Rob, thanks for posting, this is one of my favorite aircraft, and it is good to see these new Airfix 1/48 kits (your Sea Vixen, along with Tom Cleaver's Javelin) built and on display. I've only done 1/72 kits of these so far, and seeing your beautiful job on the Sea Vixen makes me consider doing one! Very well done!

  7. Very nice model, Rob, it really looks the part, and it's great to see Airfix producing kits of this quality.

  8. Nice clean build, strange cockpit arrangement, reminds me of my MG Midget...

  9. Very nice, Rob! Would love to do mine as an FAW. 1.
