Mach-2 1/72 Bell X-1E
I bought this a long time ago as it was extremely cheap. I didn't know about Mach-2 at the time and it wasn't as horrible as I thought it might be when I found out.
The decals were absolutely horrible and were prone to disintegrate on contact.
This is probably not worthy of an RFI there are a few touch ups to be done to the decals but otherwise it's done.
The plastic was almost translucent, and it did require a fair bit of sanding and trimming to get bits to fit.
Oh and a lot of filler.
It looks OK in the cabinet beside it's big brother.
Painted with Tamiya Flat White, Flat Aluminium and Nato Black.
Finished with Windsor & Newton Satin Varnish
