Revell 1/72 Shackleton AEW.2

September 12, 2023 · in Aviation · · 24 · 459

Probably, the best kit in the scale. 's new tool is superior (but not by a large margin) to the Airfix kit. In all, it is not a difficult build and results with a big and impressive model.

  1. Excellent job, Rafi and a really impressive result!

  2. Impressive result, Rafi @blackmopane
    Well done.

  3. Looks good Rafi. The Shack is an interesting airplane.

    I notice you have a couple silvered decals. Those can still be fixed even now: take a #11 xacto and slice them up, then flood them with decal solvent. They'll go down and you'll never see the slices, and the air under them will be gone and they'll be perfect.

  4. Lovely build Rafi of one of my favourite aircraft. I remember as a kid seeing them overhead on finales to the nearby AFB. My folks house was almost perfectly lined up with the runway. Those Griffins were very noisy at 2 in the morning though!

  5. It definitely looks like a Shackleton, Rafi, I remember seeing them fly from RAF St Mawgan in the 1960s.

  6. Great work. “Big and impressive” is definitely an understatement.

  7. Big and beautiful.

  8. Very nice! The Shackleton is a very distinctive-looking aircraft.

  9. A powerful machine. Beautiful!

  10. Gorgeous build Love the scheme!
