1/48 Academy Silver Star CT-133

Gallery Article by Shawn "phantom" Weiler on May 8 2020



This is almost the last CT-133 in my stash. The only 1/48 one left is missing its clear parts. This time the Golden Centennaires. Two of these CT-133s were used in 1967 as hacks for the Tutor equipped display team. This team later became 431 squadron (the Snowbirds).

The decals look great but did not want to stick to the airframe. Lucky for me I checked on the model as it was drying and found the red and white stripe was folding up. A thick coat of gloss hand brushed acted as a shellack.

As this is the last Silver Star for a while I have included the family photos.
