Airfix Strikemaster (Jet Provost T5)
You will have noticed this blog has been quiet of late. Lots of projects in the run up to Christmas had meant the models being put on hold, but now we head into the new year, and start with the finished provosts.
First up the older kit, sold as a BAC Strikemaster but with an option of building a T5 Jet provost.
You will recall I used aftermarket decals
to model a T5 prototype
all in all a good wee kit
very few moulding issues despite its age
and reasonably good fit all over
in fact a very good kit, and an relatively easy build
the moulding looks a bit heavy compared with it’s modern counterpart
but the look and feel are pretty good
and it has built up into a kit I am rather happy with
