  1. Ooh, I do like a Canberra!

    Lovely job on the modulation of the colour. Back in the day it was the first kite I worked on (B Mk12A, B2 & T4) before being pensioned off to Peru where they are apparently standing abandoned in ruin.

    Anyway, lovely job on your variant.

  2. Amazing result on the challenging Classic Airframes kit, Trachsel!
    Welcome aboard!

  3. Great first entry, Trachsel @Matra
    Welcome to this great modelling community.
    Would love to see some more of your work.

  4. That is a beautiful rendition of a great airplane; and Classic Airframes kits are not carefree. Superb work. Recommend more pictures from this great project. Thanks for posting it.

  5. Nice work on the painting, and congratulations on the victory over one of the more "intractable" Classic Airframes kits.

  6. Well done Trachsel, and welcome aboard.

  7. Thank you everyone for your comments.

  8. Nice job. It’s such an iconic jet.

  9. Beautiful finish Trachsel, nice work with the NMF paneling.

  10. Looks great - well done!

  11. Great work Trachsel @Matra - The different shades in some of the panels really gives it a interesting look, I really like the work you've done on it. Well done.
