Aki's 1/72 scale
Blackburn Firebrand

by Pat Donahue

Blackburn Firebrand


Eduard's 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-2 ProfiPACK
is available online from Squadron.com for only $39.99!

 

Description

 

About 10 years ago our editor did a review of an unusual all resin 1/72 kit of the Blackburn Firebrand by Aki Products.

 

 

Although I normally built 1/48 scale the unusual subject and unusual molding technology gave me a push to buy the kit. It sat on my shelf for about 10 years when I finally decided to build it as an Out Of The Box model.

 

 

Painted in the earlier Temperate Sea Scheme colors using Xtracolor enamels and Xtradecals with simple tape seat belts.
