English Electric Lightning F-2a 1/72 Airfix

May 10, 2018 · in Aviation · · 16 · 3K


I wanted to present you my last model. I think that it is a fantastic plane with the two engine. I choose the last kit and the Pavla cockpit. As usual, I put little details on the gear legs and I replace light by cristal piece...

I hope it ll please you...

Best regards,

    I will never get tired of the jets from the "golden" (all-metal?) age, and the E.E. Lighting is one of the most iconic ones. Great model!
