Korean War F-80C, Airfix, 1/72, old(ish)-school


Recommended Posts

The last one for our 1973-themed tribute display at this year's Scale Model World. This one didn't make the show because the decals I bought to replace the shot originals from 1973 turned out to be unusable. But I managed to pick up some early-80s-vintage Microscale sheets for the F-80C at the show, which worked brilliantly. Those guys knew what they were doing (and Microsol and Microset solutions are still around to prove it). Another old Airfix kit that gets the shape and "feel" of the real thing spot on. It's only let down by overly chunky landing gear doors.

I've enjoyed revisiting a few of my childhood builds, but normal service will now be resumed -- there are a few of the new Airfix 1/43 cars on my bench awaiting my attention!

best,

M.
