Gallery Article by Silvio Pietropaolo on Mar 29 2010


To build a  Boeing E 3 Sentry in 1/72 scale there is the Heller kit. This kit doesn't correctly reproduce the engine nacelles and pylons. I modified all the four nacelles and pylons of the engines like the original TF 33 engines on real airplane with sharp cutting and a lot of putty.
