1/48 Trumpeter F-9F Panther

Argentine Navy

by PJ from Brazil



This is my "Amateur Winner" Argentine Navy 1/48 Panther.  This is an not so easy of a kit to build because I tried some "heavy" weathering techniques that I used for the first time.  I painted it using Gunze Acrylics and sealed it using Metalizer Sealer from Testors.  I used Aerocalcas decals (From Argentina).  It was very difficult to find any reference photos on the net, all that I had was an old B&W picture and my imagination!  I used Gunze Aqueous, Tamiya paints.  Also Metalizer Sealer.  For wash I used Tamiya black paint and water for thin it.  Trumpeter kits are very well made and I did not have any problems to make this very beautiful plane!
