Revell 1/72 Avro Shackleton – WL747 "Florence" 8 Squadron RAF Lossiemouth 1979
This one was personal.
We used to get most of our AEF at Lossiemouth when I was in the Cadets and whilst this was mostly Chippie based, one glorious summer Sunday we got a long flight in this Grey Lady.
Still one of the most memorable times I had in my youth.
Some aftermarket added - Eduard Cockpit set and Brassin Resin Wheels.
The crew ladder was purloined form the Airfix MR.2 kit
Primed with UMP Grey.
Colourcoats Dark Sea Grey, Interior Green, Matt White, Light Aircraft Grey and Medium Sea Grey
Tamiya Nato Black, Rubber Black, Gloss Red, Clear Red and Clear Green.
Mr. Hobby Dark Iron
Washed with Citadel Nuln Oil, Seraphim Sepia and Flory Dark Dirt.
Finished with Windsor & Newton Satin and Matt varnishes.
This wasn't the simplest build I've had as there was some slight warping to be dealt with.
Thanks for looking,
