PLANE MONTH,AIRFIX BF 110C/D 1/72,
My first post for "Plane month", an old build but with better pictures this time, I have already shown this on the Airfix tribute forum,.There is a hell of a lot of better planes on there than mine I can tell you.This was the second plane I built when I got back into the hobby.
This plane was a bit of a nemesis for me.When I was at school, I had saved up my pocket money and rode a bloody long way to the model shop.I bought the model and raced home (another bloody long way).Upon getting home I feverishly opened the box and discovered it was missing the canopy!!!!
So I jump back on my bike and rush bloody long way back to the shop to discover that it was the only kit and no bloody canopy.At least I got my money back...and a bit fitter.
I have been determined to exercise this demon and I think I have.
Typically the canopy looks crap because I didn't paint the bottom of the glass and it stands out like a polar bear in sunglasses trying to get into a giraffe's only golf club!
The kit went together quickly and did not need any filling,not that I do any of that anyway (and it shows).The decals were printed a little off the mark but could have been solved with a bit of paint.
I brush painted the plane because I do not own an airbrush or know how to use one.Bloody expensive looking things but the effect look great.
I would love to get another one and do the desert plane with some ground crew and stuff.I would recommend this kit to any one hows getting back into the hobby or just starting.The lack of cockpit detailing is the only let down but there is other types produced by Airfix and other manufactures.
Next the Mig 21.
