scale Aermacchi MB-326 is
available online from Squadron.com
Here is a picture of my Supermodel 1/72 scale Aermacchi MB-326H in
RAAF markings which I believe was locally built as the CA-30.
The model was constructed straight from the box and was a joy to
build. I will definitely be buying a few more to depict other RAAF
squadrons. This one is from 2OCU based at RAAF Pearce in WA.
I used Humbrol and Model Master paints throughout. I did not apply
weathering as the picture I have shows this particular aircraft to be as
clean as a whistle.
The kit decals were average - a bit too opaque as you maybe able to
tell from the wing roundels. I also had a few problems getting the
decals to sit down properly.
I'm planning on building the RAAF's entire inventory, so I'll
hopefully send an article of the Fujimi 1/72 F/A-18 sometime soon!
