1/72 SPECIAL HOBBY BUCHON

Finally finished my Special Hobby 1/72 Buchon to go with my Airfix Spitfire (http://blog.cjhm.net/172-airfix-spitfire) from the 1969 Movie.

Kit and markings are as supplied by Special Hobby (also includes the Hurrismidt markings)

Build was a bit hit and miss, radiator\flap inserts didn’t fit at all so I hacked the kit parts to reduce their height and needed filler and fettling to fit.

Blue RLM 65 is Tamiya White and Light Blue mix with Lifecolor RLM02\71, all glossed with Tamiya then dirtied with MIG wash after final Matt Tamiya varnish.

Pilot is from a Revell set, he sits a bit low though ….

Eze-Line for the aerial and kit resin guns and exhausts to finish

Both Buchon and Spitfire have a tiny motor obtained on eBay, wired through a piece of aluminium tube into AAA battery box and switch hot glued inside coffee jar lid.
