Vought OS2U-1 Kingfisher USS ARIZONA in 1/72 with pacific water from AK Interactive
Hello, this is my new rollout of an Airfix model from US NAVY. This time I wanted to try out the presentation of a float plane on pacific water. The kit itself is an very old one from the 1960s by Airfix. It was reissued a few years ago in new packaging and with new decals. This is a low budget kit and I didn’t buy any aftermarket parts. All tiny details are from the spares box (except for the barrel of the M2 Browning machine gun, which comes from CMK). I scratch build the area of the canopy over the pilot’s seat, since the original part is not intended to be arranged in the open position.
The fit of the kits parts are not to bad and I have no problems during the build, but I recommend to shorten the inner struts for the outer flots, because the are a little bit to long. The decals are very good and the color profile is correct as far as I could say.
