T-33A Shooting Star



Czech Model's 1/32 scale T-33 Shooting Star is available online from Squadron

 

Description

 

This time something different.

Here is my Squadron/Czech Model 1/32 T-33A Shooting Star.

For years, I have held a high interest in Aerobatic Team aircraft, and this, in my humble opinion, is one of the prettiest birds to have ever performed in tight formation. This team, called "Whisky 4" was based in The Netherlands during the 60's and put on many an air show in their day.

It is shown here on the ramp, with a vintage Vespa scooter for an added touch. The aircraft was painted with Tamiya lacquers, which were decanted and then sprayed through an airbrush. The paint was then rubbed to a high shine with polishing pads. The list of aftermarket items is as follows:

  • AMS tail pipe and wing flaps

  • True Details wheel and speed brake wells

  • Dutch National Insignia from Fisher Models Sea Fury kit

  • Custom decals from Red Pegasus Decals

  • Scale Aircraft Conversions metal land gear ( a must)

I will say that having previously built the Czech Model P-80 cut a lot of time off the construction here, but many of the previous issues were contained here as well. All in all, an enjoyable build of one of my favorite subjects.

Enjoy!
