Love it ! Looks great! It was a mechanic maker too, we had one at Aviation High school in NYC, where we misused and abused it learning the trade.

Very nicely done! My dad spent a lot of time in the -33. Seems like anytime he transitioned between aircraft, there was always some refresher time logged in the stalwart trainer.
Thanks I thik your father was so lucky !

Great job, Franco! The T-33 is one of my favorite airplanes, and you have picked one of the best paint schemes to model. I just missed flying the T-33 in pilot training, starting with the T-37 instead. You have given me the itch to move a couple of my T-33 models farther up in the build line. Thanks for sharing.
Franco Damiani said on June 26, 2019
Sadly I missed to fly any kind of plane if it wad my dream. Just one time a little cessna. Anyway i'm very happy that now you have now a T-33 on your sight. let me know...

I’m really starting to like these early jets. Yours is a great example. Nice work.

This build really cries out for attention Franco. Beautiful bright color scheme and so nicely done.
Thank you for sharing the pictures.

Wow! I am not sure if it is the colour on the kit, and how it photographed, or how you painted it, but the international orange looks like it has a subtle sun fade effect! Did you lightly spray a lightened orange down from the top?
The kit looks awesome! I wish we saw more T-33 kits as TV-2's. Illiad had a really nice sheet of a drone controller, but I didn't move fast enough to try and get a sheet- now its OOP!
I have a few testors/hawk T-33's and two GWH T-33 kits- two of them will be in Blue Angels markings...
Thanks for sharing your build!
I Dan, actually it's not international orange but fluorescent red orange FS 28913. Trying to get a faded effetct I used a vallejo air color over Tamiya white, in very soft coats of paint.
I Have the illiad nice sheet but, I Iwanted to realize a navy bird in this scheme so I had to use old sheets of letters and numbers from microscale to get it. Thank you for your appreciation.
About the drone controller decals on the Illiad sheet when you will came in Italy...
Anyway if you like this scheme , I agreee with you, it very nice! So I'm working on a 1/48 tigercat f7 f 2d drone controller ...
