Pair of 1/48 Academy Hunters

Gallery Article by Yusof Zakaria


Well these two kits were made from the Academy 48th Hunter kit. One models depicts a RSAF F.74b 521 of 141 Sqn and another Sqn which I could not identify.

Kit fits well.  The only problem I had was the fit of the air intake which required some dry fitting before final gluing. 

These Hunters sport three tone camo of tan, light and dark green.  Paints were custom mixed to achieve scale effect. 

Models were given a coat of Future to achieve that gloss surface which the person who commissioned me wanted. All of the kits I was commissioned to build had a gloss surface and personally I prefer a semi gloss or matt coat on my models but the customer  is always right.

Happy modeling
