DH110 Sea Vixen Target Tug Frog 1/72
This is the Frog kit #F409 of the DH110 Sea Vixen FAW.2 and was built as part of de Havilland 100 Years Group Build. Thanks to Erik Gjørup (@airbum) for starting the DH GB as there are some great kits being built. The kit was initially release in 1976, and then reissued by others throughout the years including Novo, Revell and Ark Models. The Sea vixen squeaks in as a DH build as all design and initial production and initial operations occurring all under the DH name before the Hawker-Siddeley merger.
I decided to make things a little colourful and went with aircraft XS587 which was initially built as an FAW.2 and was later converted to a target tug (FAW(TT).2) configuration. I couldn’t find many details about the Target Tug conversion so there must be some inaccuracies with going this route apart from the kits inherent issues with the nose cone and tail booms.
I tried some cockpit mods and had primer issues and decal issues but that made it into an interesting build to say the least. The finished kit definitely added some colour to my 72nd scale jet display cabinet.
