John Glenn's F-86F Mig Mad Marine, Academy 1/72

July 28, 2022 · in Aviation · · 13 · 1K

Hi all

after a long time of inactivity as a consequence of lot health issues, finally back on track :).

Finished in colours of John Glenn machine from period. Academy is well known "plastic", good details, fit, and overall look, no real issues there. Colours AK real colours, very nice to work with. I had big issue with final layer of gloss varnish, It was almost disaster, silver colour start cracking, so some parts removed to plastic surface, again this will not be a model for some contest, but i am happy at the end.

I hope you will like it also.

Till next model, best regards, Djordje
