Eduard 1/48 P-39 Airacobra "weekend edition".

December 19, 2022 · in Aviation · · 11 · 0.9K

Out of the box. Snafu 106 scheme. Photo of original plane included. Stynylrez primer with Olive Drab top side and neutral gray underneath. "Bell green" interior. Hairspray chipping technique. Weekend edition definitely not done in a weekend. Took me that long to get decals/stencils all on. Completed in mid Nov. 2022.

  1. Great build! Love the weathering effects you used. Photo of actual aircraft verifies that you nailed the right look for this aircraft. Well done!

  2. Very nice! I have a couple more Aircobras in my stash, and those desert-camo ones on the box art look enticing! You may have provided some inspiration for one of my next builds...

  3. A great copy of the original one, Russ @rfking
    Great work done on this, more than a weekend-edition.

  4. Well done Russ and I've discovered that Weekend Edition is an oxymoron.

  5. Great looking P-39 !

  6. Nicely done Russ, down to the bomb too.
