Hawk / Testor + Scratch 1/48 scale
Laird Super Solution

by Fabrice Fanton

Laird Super Solution


Tamiya's 1/32 scale P-51D Mustang is available online from Squadron.com for just $146.99!

 

Description

 

Built at the same time than the Solution, this is my Laird Super Solution in 1/48th scale, based on the old Hawk/Testors Laird Solution kit.

 

 

I kept from the original kit :

  • the propeller, with some additions

  • the engine cowl, but with a new front shape and shorter

  • wheels cut in half

  • upper and lower wings, but with a new skin

  • horizontal stabilizers and elevators

All others parts are scratchbuilt, except the engine from Vector range.

The kit is paint in viridian green and Kodak yellow, as stated Paul R. Matt drawings, with mixes from Tamiya paint. But, Humbrol 88 Deck Green and 169 Yellow Facings could be used too.

 

 

Race numbers and registrations are paint with masks made by Cameron Lewis (Cameron's Decals) and Laird logo and registration on fin and rudder was specially made by Red Pegasus Decals. Hamilton Propeller logos are made by Jbot Decals.

 

 

Many thanks to modelers from the French Master194, especially to Stephane Colin who gave me the idea to built the Super Solution.
