T-38C Talon in 1/48 Scale by Trumpeter

July 10, 2016 · in Aviation · · 9 · 3.4K

I built this one just because I could. Totally out of the box, with paint by Testors Model Master enamels, washes by AK Interactives, and decals from the box that fought me tooth and nail. Even the photo-etch seatbelts were less trouble than those darn stickers. Cockpit is all relief detail, with decals for colours. Those ones worked amazingly well. The surface detail was so fine, that by the time I got to the panel line wash stage, there was darn near nothing for the wash to run into. Anyway, Iā€™m done, I like it, and it will look good from 3 feet or so, sitting on a shelf.
