S-3B Viking, 1/48 Italeri

Recommended Posts

I have a little sneak build to present for you. 
Now and then I visit a mate, Erik -he´s here on ARC too, and we sit and swear over the youth and the general condition of our world, eat unhealthy food and
work on some models while we do it. Ha! We men can multitask too, complain, eat and build at the same time...no probs!

Anyway, I put together this S-3B at Erik´s place over a few months. Some aftermarket is put in it, a wolfpack cockpit, Eduard PE and Steele beach FOD covers.
In hindsight I should have used another color on the FOD covers...it´s very grey, some spots of color could have been nice, RBF-flags and such.

I´m happy with the TPS weathering and it gor me a Brons plack at C4-Open in Malmö last moth.

Well time for some dirty pics....

Great looking Viking. They started putting the lightning bolt on the fuselage just as I left the squadron. 

 

Your TPS weathering is very good. 

 

Cheers

Absolutely FILTHY! But exceptionally done! I've always loved Grumman fighters, and the S3 was always fascinating to me and you have captured it well. Those FOD covers look amazing too, like real stretched fabric!
