Mach II 1/72 Convair 440 Metropolitan – Continental Airlines Delivery scheme (Update)
Update on my previous contribution on the Mach II 1/72 CV-440. Many write-off these Mach II kits, and to be fair, they are not great but very often the only game in town for some subjects. All said, I don’t think it makes a bad representation of this classic propliner. All appears to be the right shape and scale, and with gear up, windows filled, it looks pretty good.
The decals are from Vintage Flyer Decals. I have to say that the decals from VFD are outstanding. Considering all the fine detail pinstripes, application was relatively painless.
It’s far from a super detail kit but does make a pretty looking display model.
