Four engined Breguet Br1150 Oceanic AEW
« on: December 16, 2020, 10:29:39 am »
 The build is based on the 1/72 Revell Breguet Br.1150 Atlantic ATL1 with additional parts from a Grumman E-2 Hawkeye rotodome plus stand, the Revell 1/72 Airbus A400M Atlas propellers and outer engines.
 As this is an AEW platform the bomb bay doors are glued in the closed position. Despite how many times I build the Revell Atlantic I can't get the cockpit to seal tightly,  the dipping radar has been removed but the M.A.D boom remains.
I have left out some of the detailing on the Revell Airbus A400M engines as you can't see much apart from the exhaust pipe. I have dry tested them above the Atlantic wings and they seem to be okay.
My local Tesco's has stopped selling Gorilla glue, so it's a case of shopping around to fix the wings and superglue the nose weight.

Update,
The Breguet Oceanic now has all four engines from the 1/72 Revell Airbus A400M Atlas.
