We (in Canada) all know about the Avro Arrow. Ahead of its time in so many ways and perhaps far too glamorized by conspiracy theory folks. Sure it was fast, the engines awesome, but would it have lasted till today? Perhaps not. But its loss sure buggered up the Canadian fighter manufacturing business.

Ok, its Hobby Craft. Not known as a competitor for Tamiya. This is the improved version of the 1/48 scale kit. But holy CRAP this one was one poor fitting kit. The cockpit was fine, but that was about it. Wings are mismatched, but the main body was horrendous. Had to putty and putty and putty again. The decals however went on just fine.

Enjoy the photos.
