Cyber Hobby 1/72 Sea Vampire F2.0

December 24, 2021 · in Aviation · · 18 · 1.3K

What an absolute joy of a kit.
Some lovely slide moulded parts and great fit.
The Cockpit is for another variant but as virtually nothing can be seen, I just went with it.
Any issues were of my own making but mainly managing to break the port boom off when cleaning up a wash.

Primed with Nato Black
Painted with ColourCoats Extra Dark Sea Grey, Sky Type S, Xtreme Metals Jet Exhaust, Tamiya Nato Black, Rubber Black and Flat Aluminium and Flat White.
Washed with Flory Dark Dirt and Citadel Nuln Oil
Finished with Windsor & Newton Satin Varnish.

A fun little build that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Thanks for looking,

  1. Another super result, Alistair! Indeed the cockpit is no issue at all, since notging but busyness can be seen under the closed canopy at this scale.
    Well done!

  2. Great little Vampire, Alistair @alistairfgauld
    Nobody will notice the difference of cokpit.

  3. Thanks so much.
    It's utterly invisible in situ.


  4. What would we do without a black cockpit? Add stuff that is just expensive...

    Nice little build of a seldom seen water Vampire.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. One of my favorite airplanes in my favorite scale. You've completely captured the essence of an in-service Vampire. I continue to try for the 'used' look that you've put so well with into this build. I especially admire the wheel wells and undersides of the airframe. Thank you for sharing your photos.

  6. Nice build of early Royal Navy jet aviation.

  7. Well done, Alistair. That’s one we don’t see everyday!

  8. Very nice build, great looking Sea Vampire!

  9. A great-looking little Vamp! Well done.

  10. Nicely done Alistair, a different look to the Vampire.

  11. Thank you so much
