F2H-2 Banshee (Sword 1/72)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

another piece to my USN collection. Except for rivets, position lights and right behind the seat area it´s out of the box. Although I´m happy with result, critiques are, of course, welcome:)

What was your impression of the build? I built one too but felt it was lacking in a few areas. Wing to fuselage fit and the wheel wells needed to be re-drilled ad formatted to accept the main gears. I also scrathbuilt most pars to the nose gear? Your looks great !

Steve,

Vladislav,

A very impressive build. Can't remember the last time I saw a F2H Banshee model. Paint and decaling is just spot on perfect. Well done.

Nicely done, Vladislav. What paint did you use for the Gloss Sea Blue? I really like the way it looks.

Thanks,

Any advice on how to fit the wings. I noticed that the upper and lower wing roots on the fuselage do not match the actual wing. I can fit to the top or to the bottom, but not both. The resin intakes also don't seem to fit. Is there just a better approach?

What riveting tool did you use?

Nice looking but that nose looks like it's the wrong profile.

Something weird about the wing "humps" where the engines

are. Nice job though.---John
