1/72 Hasegawa Tornado
« on: Thu Jan, 11, 2018, 11:13:PM »
This was my final build for 2017. The kit originally had different markings. I really like how the plane looked which was why I bought thee kit. But when i got to the decals, they were atrocious. They came aprt in the water and were disintegrating on the plane. Totally un workable.

So i found this set by Skyhart. While these were also a little fragile and easy to break, they were well within the acceptable range. The first two pics are after I got a brass pitot to replace the really bad kit one. So the pics on the window sill (for natural light) have the crooked overly thick kit part.

Oh, according to the instructions with the decals, this plane flew with no a single external anything. Hence the lack of fuel tank or even mounts.
