Hello fellow modelers, here I present to you my construction of two 1/72 Aloeuttes III from the 552 Squadron of the Portuguese Air Force.

The kits are from Heller, the quality of them is not so good, but with the photoetch from Extratech and some dedication, patience and steady work it can come out a pretty nice machine.

The Portuguese Decals are form Santa Cruz and Iíve used some service markings from a old Model Alliance sheet.  I also used acrylic paint sealed with Testors Dullcote, and Alclad 2 on the engine and the open tail.

I guess the pictures speak for themselves.

Hope you enjoy this two pieces.

Best Regards

Vitor Sousa
