Avro Shackleton

Revell 1/72 Shackleton MR.3

Revell 1/72 Shackleton AEW.2

Probably, the best kit in the scale. Revell's new tool Shackleton 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.

Revell 1/72 Shackleton AEW

Here is my Shackleton built pretty much out of the box but I added screen wipers and detailed the cockpit. An unusual scale for me although it is still quite a large kit when finished. The model was finished with Tamiya XF's and, as I [...]

Avro Shackleton MR.2 in 1/72 by Airfix
