... continueing building the 1/32
Sea Venom and Aquilon models.... (from page 5...)
Finishing the French Aquilon
Berna set 48-07 was mostly used with
some items from Berna set 72-02. From the decal spare box came also some
red stencils and red lines.
Aquilons can be seen with quite some variations on the number of roundels (4 or 6) and the location of the white registrations. Also, sometimes squadron markings are seen.
Before decalling, the model got an overall coat of Johnsoon Future gloss coat. Adding the Berna decals went OK.
The nose cone for the Aquilon 203 hinges upwards.
Here the overall result of the nose
A pylon was made from thick card and
sanded in shape at the rear and front leading edges.
Also, the wing holding bars were made and painted red. Small holes were drilled in the fuselage boom and wingtip to hold the bar. Each bar got two tiny pieces of metal at their ends to fit the holes.
Here also some red squares are seen at the upper intake lips, made from red decal.
