Hobby Craft YP-59 Airacomet 1/48
I built this when I just wanted a relatively easy and uncomplicated build. Of course that didn’t mean I couldn’t improve the kit by using some resin enhancements. I used True Details Cockpit also the True Details Wheels set. Both provided easy but very necessary improvements to the kit. I didn’t do anything else except build the kit, and while nothing spectacular it makes a nice addition to my WWII collection, and a nice contrast to the Me-262.
Since it didn’t go into service I in combat, I chose to do something I find challenging and build it fairly clean and unworn. Minor panel variation and scuffing of paint at the cockpit, but other wise fairly clean.
This is not a bad kit, just a simple one with decent fit, and marginal detail but still it is an important subject and until something better comes along a decent kit.
