1/48 Airfix Lightning

Calling this one done, not 100% happy with it, but that’s more down to me than the kit.

4 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. Well, it’s a splendid Lightning, Malcolm. I do wish you had more pictures, though.

  2. 100% or not…it looks pretty good to ME. 🙂

  3. Agree, it looks very good, the camouflage is very nicely made. I like it

  4. A beautiful Lightning!

  5. So where’s the fakakte? I can’t see it. Looked hard. All I can see is standard-issue good model making work.

    Very nice result. Another excellent Lightning model.

  6. Thank you, you are to kind
    There are a few little faults, the wing lights for some reason don’t fit correctly, the undercarriage is a bit wobbly, as I had to put a fair bit of weight in the nose to keep it down once the tail was fitted, and a few others, as I say not the kits fault, as it’s a great kit, may have to make a couple more 😂

  7. Malcolm, I like it ! It might not feel right to you, but that’s just you being a model guy !
    I do like your comment about “may having to make some more”. I use that excuse quite often !

  8. Oh, Tom, it’s been a while since I heard the phrase ‘fakakta’ – made my (Shabbat) morning. The Lightning is great, Malcom, and as Tom will tell you, just like Hollyweird, what the camera doesn’t see doesn’t exist!

  9. Looks great from where I sit! Love the ole’ lightning!

  10. Good job all round, Malcolm. Not a subject we see that often, but one deserving more attention.

  11. Cheers mate, thank you
