1/48 Airfix Canberra B (I) Mk 8

Fuerza Aerea Peruana

by PJ from Brazil



This is my Peruvian Canberra.  This aircraft was lost  In Del Alto Cenepa war ( a conflict between Peru and Equator)  at 7:00 AM, January 6th 1995. The pilots Percy Philips Cuba and Miguel A. Rodriguez disappeared  without any trace after a bomber mission.  A sad finish for them.

I don't want to the side of Peru or Equator but this is my little  "piece of war history".  I used Gunze Sangyo Acrylic Paints, sealed it with Testors Metalizer Sealer and weathering and fading was made with oils and pastels. 

The decals are from Aztec. They are very high quality ones and Aztec is from Mexico!
