1/72 Welsh Models L-188 Lockheed Electra

Recommended Posts

It's been quite a while since I actually posted anything over here. I have had a few family issues and health issues of my own to deal with, but now all is good and I can get back into some serious modelling again. So, without further babbling here is my 1/72 Welsh Models L-188 Electra in TAA livery of the 1960's (Hawkeye Decals). The fuselage is vacform but the wings and tail planes are solid resin. Not the funnest kit in the world but a nice result at the end.

I am dedicating this build to my late father who passed away last July. He worked on these at TAA from 1960-85.

And with the might Orion developed from the same fuselage

I hope you like it

Hi Andrew-

Lovely work on your Electra! The painting/finishing is especially well done (white and NMF- two of the more difficult to work with). It is also nice to see something different posted here.

Cheers,

Albert

Cheers Albert. This was definately one of the hardest kits I've ever built with flat spots, I'll fitting wings etc and then the paint.
