Hunting Percival Jet Provost T3

Eduard's 1/48 scale MiG-21PF is available online from Squadron for only USD$31.99



This is my Airfix new tool 1/72 scale Hunting Percival Jet Provost T3 of No.1 Flying Training School RAF. I built this kit mostly as straight from the box. I only added a few details.



Landing lights were made of half-ball shape tips of clear sprue. Reflectors made of punched aluminum sheet were glued behind them. The canopy was sanded and engraved with hand-made double needles. Navigation lights on the outside half of wing tip tank head were depicted with clear sprue.



Wing roundels and fin flashes were masked and painted. Red circles were cut out kit decals and repainted with the same shade of the fuselage lower half and tip tanks. The serial number XM463 was the combination of kit decals XM461 and XM413. The aircraft number üg38üh was custom made dry decals.



Clear lacquer was over sprayed to protect decals and dry decals. After that, the surface was polished with Mr. Laplos #8000 and rubbing compound. Then it was finished.



I enjoyed carefree modeling.
