Pilatus U-28A in 1/72 by Sova-M

If it´s "special", I need to have it! The U-28A is the SOCOM-version of the PC-12, so that´s special!

This looks like a small airstrip somewhere in Central America...

The kit went together without any major problems, only thing I added were two pilot figures and a lot of lead in the nose to keep it on all three wheels.

The U-28A reveals that it originally is a PC-12 Executive Prop - simply an elegant and good looking aircraft!

I love the light-effect on the front window!

Nicely done HAJO :thumbsup2:

 

I have the Finnish version on the bench which just need decals and some of those micro clear parts added (which are a real pain!).

 

I also have another kit of same to do in this scheme.

Love it. I have a lot of combat time in 447. I had to buy the kit as well. So it went together OK?

Thank you, guys!

 

Collin, the only things I really paid attention to were the cabin windows (they need some sanding down to fit) and the front clear part, where I had to sand as well to fit it into the fuselage.

Even though the fuselage halves don´t have locator pins it went together quite good and didn´t need to too much sanding.

There was a slight gap between the two upper wing halves and the fuselage, but nothing a strip of plastic couldn´t cure.

The PE-parts are a bit thick and bending the part above the cargo door was a PITA. Epsecially those parts that needed some "curving" to fit to the fuselage are a bit tricky.

 

So, this is not a shake-n-bake-kit, but still very good for a short-run.
