Classic Airframes' 1/48 scale
Vampire FB.5

by Mick Evans


 

Construction

Here is Classic Airframes' 1/48 scale De Havilland Vampire FB.5.

The model was finished using Testor's Model Master enamels.

The striking markings are those of Wing Commander R.L. Smith of 502/605/612 Squadrons, based at RAF Ousten in 1954-55.

 

 

The aircraft is finished in Dark Green BS381C641 and Dark Sea Grey BS381C638 upper surface with PRU Blue lower surfaces.  This aircraft had a large yellow RLS painted on the nose and had two different squadron pennants a red and dark blue diagonally divided rectangle painted on the port side tail boom and a yellow and light purple triangular divided pennant on the starboard side of the tail boom. 

The rudders and wing tips are also finished in a yellow and light purple diamond pattern. 

 

 

Markings came from Euro Decals' 1/48 scale Vampire decal sheet, reviewed earlier this year on HyperScale.
