What can you do in four days?

March 5, 2014 · in Aviation · · 9 · 1.2K

The answer is... A in 1/48 scale.

Instead of enjoy the carnival in Brasil, I decided to stay at home (much more safe) and finish my client´s request for another Marines training bird. The 1/48 scale Goshawk.
Just like the Special Hobby Buckeye this model have some problems with the wing and fuselage joint and intakes fittings as well. But nothing dificult to solve with epoxi putty. The build was finished today. Just a few minutes ago. The paint was done with Tamiya acrilic paints. I hope you like it!

I had problems with the decals, and I made a huge mistake by decaling the modex numbers backwards. I´m already get in touch with my client and he doesn´t mind about that...

Best regards

AFTER BUILD: My client call me and tell me about the color of the intakes lips. They are red instead of black. Yes gentlemen this is the life when you do comission builds. RULE #1: The client always right RULE #2: The client must be happy RULE #3: Be prepared to repaint a finished model.
Late at night I´ll post here some pictures of the corrected model.
