1/72 Airfix (Special Hobby) FMA IA 58 Pucará

Postby Wayne E » Mon May 07, 2018 11:59 pm

Here is my Pucará, famously flown in the 1982 Falklands War by the Argentine Air Force. The kit is of a limited run type with quite a few fit issues especially the cockpit glazing to the fuselage. Colours are tamiya acrylics the green should be paler, but luckily i found a post war one with the same shade of green used as a new engine test bed.
