Military aircraft vol.85: De Haviland Vampire NF.10

De Haviland Vampire NF.10
Hobbycraft Canada
US$30,00 plus shipping
Injected plastic model with  waterslide decals.
This is my second Vampire from Hobbycraft Canada. It is a simple kit, with recessed panel lines, although not entirely correct. Fit is very good, so expect a fast construction. Detail however is poor on the cockpit and wheel wells. It is however not too difficult to add some cockpit increments, and work will be payed off as the canopy has large windows to see trough. Decals were a major downside of the kit. They perform poorly so i replaced them with a set from Classic Airframes markings for the Venom . Painting was done as usual for me with Tamiya acrylics sealed with future and Humbrol matt coat.
