Hi all plastic
fellows. This time I come with one Airfix 1/72 Vickes Wellington. The kit is a
Mk I but I made several scratch changes to convert it to a Mk VIII in service of
172th. Squadron of Coastal Command during WWII.

Rescribed fuselage panel lines, improvements on gun turrets, all the antenna set (made from
stretched sprue and wire) and one white metal undercarriage made at home
were the changes applied to this model. Painting was done with Testors,
Tamiya and Humbrol paints and decals came from the spares box. Squadron and
aircraft letters were masked and painted by air-brush.
Hope you enjoy it!
Cheers to all from Brazil!
