1/48 Airfix RB-57E Camberra

Gallery Article by Busolini Massimo on Feb 16 2015



The model that I am going to introduce is a RB-57E, an Airfix kit in 1/48 scale.  This kit has recessed panel lines, but very precise in the joints, and particularly generous dimensions !!! I added the CMK resin cockpit, very nice, and fits very well with the kit.

After having filled the few seams of the two halves of the fuselage, I gave a first coat of Model-Master Aluminium Metalizer and polished after I gave a second coat, and polished again. I prepared the surface for the decals with a glossy varnish.

After drying the decals, helped their application with the softening of Gunze, I did a wash with tempera dark gray. After applying again the clear gloss, I applied in various areas of varnish matte glazes read, and you have finished editing the carts and the last parts of the kit, I can say that the dimensioi model are truly remarkable, then prepared a lot of space in your shop window !!!
