Airfix Kingfisher

View images (6): | | List

This was one of the earliest builds for the SAMI 'Circuits and Bumps' series. The kit was the MPC boxing of the Kingfisher and came with some dubious-looking figures. I re-scribed the kit, added some White Ensign PE interior bits and various small details. The flaps also had to be extended as Airfix have them incorrectly stopping at the wing-walk. Canopy is a Falcon vac-form item, which helps a lot as the kit parts are a bit thick. Overall, a fun little project.



This album is attached to project Airfix Vought Kingfisher.

Robbie I must admit it does encourage you to dig out those old kits knowing it is actually possible to turn out a nice looking model. I am still staring at my Bristol Bulldog (from your other post) bag in my stash wondering though :-/
