1/48 Hispano Ha-1112 Buchon, Ejército del Aire

December 12, 2020 · in Aviation · · 9 · 1.8K

Built in 2015.

boxing of the kit, mostly built oob. Replaced the crappy kit canopy with a Hasegawa one, for that some putty and re-scribing was neccessary in the fuselage area behind the canopy.

Used a piece of sponge for the mesh in the nose air-intake and a plastic rod for the antenna. Added some structure in the wheel wells, smoothed down the wrong tire tread. The black exhausts stripes are provided as decals in the kit, but they are slightly wrong so my dad painted them.

Model Master Azure and Tamiya Titanium Silver for the camo.

There would be more things to correct, as with all Hobbycraft/Academy kits. But to avoid a never ending story my dad put a fork in it.

    What a magnificent looking model. It's hard to believe this is one of those "old Hobbycraft" kits. With a few modifications as you have done here, these kits still look very nice. Thanks for sharing this with us. I pressed the "liked" button too.

  2. Impressive looking build Reinhard, especially sharp in the NMF.

  4. Echoing above gents comments, Reinhard, I find your build amazing!

  5. HC left a lot to be desired especially the interiors, but they did make some nice kits like the Buchon.

    It's a very good paint job on a very good model.

  6. Another great one, Reinhard. That’s one of those kits I wish I would’ve picked up when it was available.

  7. A real impressive build, Reinhard.
    I like the idea of using a sponge in the air-intake.
