1/48 Testors T-33A

Gallery Article by Robert Martino on June 3 2020



This is my latest built model of the T-33 Silver Shark Decal by Leading Edge no. 48.5 VU32 Ct-133 CFB Greenwood Nova Scotia, Canada 1992          

Kit was basic with no cockpit and undercarriage details. After adding some details to the cockpit seats and to the undercarriage, this model started to look pretty decent. With the wing flaps in down position it left an opening on the sides of the  fuselage.  I created Ribs out of sheet styrene to close up the openings.

Paints used were Testors FS36231 Silver 1246, Krylon Blue, Yellow, White and Grey. I was able to match the colours using the swatches provided on the decal. Landing Gear was finished with Alclad S/S. Decals went on easily without any issues.

This project took some time building but satisfied with the results.

Hope you like it.
