1/48 Airfix Lightning F.2

by Giuseppe Penna



For me, this is the best post war aircraft  to build from English Air Ministry.  

This model is the 1/48 Airfix kit and it represents a the XN 788 when it was stationed in Germany in 1962.

The lightning has an impressive rate of climb: 150 seconds to reach 37.ooofeet (12.ooo meter)

My model of the BRITISH AEROSPACE " Lightning" F.2  XN 788 was finished using ALCLAD II metalizer.
