    Special Hobby 1/48 Barracuda II

    Hello guys and gals, it has been a long time since I posted, and it has equally been a long time in the production, some 4 years off and on, but at last my rendition of Fairey Barracuda II, MX 577 is finished as 'AOQ' 753 Squadron based at HMS Condor Arbroath.circa 1945. I'm afraid dealing with the minute details proved almost at the limit of my eyesight and clumsy digits, but I'm glad to have at least, and at last, completed the Barra. I'm sure it will strike a chord with fellow forum members with an affinity for the type. Brian S.

    Thumbs up

    We don't see enough quality like this on the model board, it seems rarely used, that Barracuda looks excellent, thanks for sharing, please keep them coming.
    You can teach monkies to fly better than that....

    Thank you all for your kind comments, it makes my efforts worthwhile! Any more forthcoming will have to be from others however, I think another four-year gestation period on a new project would be rather daunting. The Barra is under an acrylic cover now, as the dusting round the aerials and other fiddly projections used to create a never ending round of getting the glue pot out, despite how careful I tried to be with the camel hair brushes!
