BAC 1-11 Wedgetail AEW&C
« on: March 29, 2019, 01:16:52 am »
On the front cover of  'Beyond the  Horizon ' The history of AEW & C aircraft  by  Ian Shaw with Sergio Santana is the artwork of the Boeing  E-7  Wedgetail which is roughly the same scale as the  VEB/Playfix BAC 1-11 model kit.
Although I don't have any scale drawings of the Boeing E-7 Wedgetail I think that I can scratch build something that resembles the shape of the radar.
I have added a pair of B-52G engines to the kit,  sort of a mini VC10 with an additional engine in the tail.
A raid in the spares box should supply the necessary parts for the lumps and bumps.  I think I have a stand for the model which will come in handy for the paint stage.
I have used Squadron Products Green Putty to fill in the gaps,  I think that they have changed the formula as it looks more like a glue than a filler and this works well.
