From a few years ago here's my 1/72 Airfix De Havilland Vampire T. 11. At the time I made this one I had done a couple of the “new Airfix” kits and was very much enjoying them. I picked this one up as an impulse buy and found it to be another enjoyable project.
Looks good Scott, nice clean finish, well done, I've built one of these with a few more to do !
I appreciate the compliments, Allan!
Sharp! What paints did you use?
Thanks, John. I used Tamiya silver decanted from a spray can through my airbrush and Model Master fluorescent red with maybe a bit of yellow in it.
Nicely done! I like the high visibility scheme.
I've painted that same kit last year, but in diferent colors 🙂
although I got it already built (just for paint), I agree that one seems an enjoyable weekend project. Now that I've seen yours, I think I'll definitly build another one for myself 🙂
Looks nice in trainer colors. I have 3 Vampires standing by for various S. American livery.
A real Jewel of a kit,painted to perfection.
I've been watching Youtube shorts of the Reno air races and in the jet category they have entered a Vampire trainer going up against L-39's and it won. Food for thought and another build.
Two thumbs up Scott.
