1/48 Dehavilland Vampire F.3
This is the brand new Airfix kit. It’s well engineered and fits great. I did trim the bottoms of the cockpit consoles to get a better fit between the upper and lower fuselage parts. One other thing to be aware of is that Airfix reversed the wingtip part numbers on the instructions. Swap accordingly. I built this out of the box with the exception of seatbelts which I fabricated from tape and plastic card. The overall silver paint is Tamiya LP-11 applied with my Paasche Talon. All other pants are Humbrol enamels. The decals are from the kit and are exceptional. High end Cartograf set. This kit is another winner. Keep ‘em coming, Airfix.
