1/24 Heritage Aviation Lightning

by Aaron Hughes



Here's my latest Lightning, its Heritage Aviation's BIG scale Lightning.  Its a vac form, resin and white metal kit of monster proportions.  I brought this as a present to myself as all my hints fell on deaf ears (you no what its like).  It wasn't cheap at 95 ($200) but was worth every penny for the enjoyment I got from making it.  It took about 6 months over winter to complete this beast!  In the photo its next to a 1:72 Lightning to show the size.

I used Humbrol Enamels exclusively and lots and lots and lots of superglue.  I would recommended this kit to any experienced modeller who wants a challenge.
