Airfix Avro Shackleton MR.2
And so to the first build of 2017 at last.
This is Airfix’s new tooling from last year of the Avro Shackleton, a direct descendant of the Lancaster designed for Maritime Reconnaissance. As usual the big red box and CGI illustration
lots of plastic inside all crisply moulded in light blue/grey.
The instructions are of the usual high quality of modern kits as well
As are the separate colour schemes, for two variants. Having looked through pictures online of completed kits I have finally decided to go with the above variant, in white and medium sea grey
So I will be using some of the comprehensive supplied decals
And, again to the best modern standard a separate call out sheet for the decals is provided.
