Italeri (Accurate Miniatures) 1:48 Avenger.
This is an old model I built long time ago, originally with the 3 tone camo pattern of white, medium and dark blue. After a close look, I decided to give her a new life. I stripped the paint, riveted the whole model, restored it and painted with the atlantic 2 tone.
The major effort was to cut the sections of the board wing and replicate the folding mechanism by scratch, using plasticard and copper wiring. Other minor surgery was opening the gun compartiment of the starboard wing, lowering the tail stabilizers, open the engine cowls and replicate the exhaust with brass tubing.
Hope you like it! !!
