1/72 Airfix F-80C Chilean Air force

Recommended Posts

HI Folks!


THis GB got me inspired to ressresurrect my 1/72 Chilean F-80C:




Its from the 1974 airfix kit, last id done is paint up the cockpit parts so hopefully ok!




am using the fuel tanks from an equally ancient hasegawa T-33 (dating back to 1969!):

this afternoon I worked on the wing tanks - man, what a mission!  


trying to ensure both tanks were aligned correctly took a ton of resetting, super glue, and patience! but i'm fairly confident they are aligned properly :beer4: (probably would have been easier to adapt the t-33 wing to the kit )


as per the kit: 




removed the edges:




final result!;

Hehe yea ive been using superglue to fill as much as i can...wing tanks turned out Allright but i think intakes will be another  matter!


This is one of airfix's better  releases - would love a new tool though!!


Still undecided on a camouflaged or metal  lacquer bird!
