Malaysia National Day



This is the ancient Airfix's HS 125 kit courtesy of my friend Mr B, build as part of the ARC Far East GB. Kit's raised lines were sanded smooth and partially re-scribed, the kit's clear parts for the cabin windows were missing along the way.  I replaced it with clear plastic parts and filled the gaps with super glue, result is not perfect but a lot of tips from GB and lesson learnt for future improvement.

The whole model was painted with Gaia white, then masked and painted the tri colors fin flash on tail and sea blue line on fuselage.  Markings for RMAF No 1 VIP transport squadron, overall, this has been an enjoyable build.

Happy Merdeka 2016.
