Fantabubulous Kit.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Hehehehe, thanks Robert and everyone else as well, but it's not as good as it could have been really.

a) It's a Mach 2 basic kit with all its various problems (the canopy, agggghhhh!) and b) the paint job could have been better for sure.

But it looks very impressive with those MONSTER wings.

That's looking sexy, esp. in the Hemp livery!  :thumbsup:

The difference between the Hemp topsides and the Light Aircraft Grey undersides is very small, much less than I thought it would be. Where the Hemp overlaps on the underside view you can hardly see it!

I thought that was the basic idea behind camouflage  :rolleyes:

Detail view of the nose showing the diabolical fit of the canopy (I really did try to fix it....) and the 1 PRU unit badge


After looking at the end result of your model I rummaged around for my RB-57F kit and found it. A bit late for this Kit, but in the box I found I had bought a replacement canopy for it, Aeroclub No. C013. Also got some replacement u/c and wheels too --

Fantastic build, Kit, even if you've been a little shy on wingspan. ;D

Yes, I left it as it came from the box, most unlike me.  ;D

As for the landing gear, I may change mine for the SAC version. Mine are already showing signs of canting inwards, just like my MR23 too.

The canopy only fits on one side, the left. Both the right hand side and the front are diabolical. You can see the step at the base of the windscreen in Robert's linked pic, but the right hand side moulding is around 1.5 mm too narrow, so there's a big step there.

I've got an Italeri B-57B and I may see if that canopy fits better, or trawl around for an Aeroclub one, anything's got the better than it is now!

Falcon do one, but it's in one of their USAF sets. You could also ask at High Planes, I got the wheels from them but that was before the original owner sold the company to the Singapore group that produces them now.
