B-57B

The old Airfix Martin B-57 (with raised panel lines!). Made awhile ago but thought I’d share… First couple of photos are filtered to try and replicate a late 60s/early 70’s photo. The ones below are unfiltered. Kit was made as a fast build, for grins, straight from the box. The main black scheme was applied with Chaos Black rattle can from Games Workshop, the rest is hand-brushed. In some of the photos is the Airfix Jeep.

Actually, forgot to say… it’s OOB except for the decals. The kit was so old that the decals had yellowed and curled so I bought replacements; Extradecal sheet X72103. The model wears the colours of B-57B 52-1574/H of the 71st BS, 38th BW Laon Air Base in France, 1957.
