Lockheed U-2 "spy plane"

U-2  in 1/72 scale : Airfix kit review & modelling report
box u-2 airfix

Airfix released a 1/72 kit of the Lockheed U-2 in 1983 as kit 04028.     

It is a very nice kit, with only before that vacuforms being available.

Though panel lines are raised, it can be made into a nice kit.

The instructions are typical Airfix and a bit unclear in places. Schemes for 2 U-2 with decals are provided with a peculiar one being half black/ half metal.

Kit was made straight out of the box in no time.
Intakes take some work and putty to fix.  Enamels were airbrushed with silver lower areas and black. Some details were added in the cockpit.
The canopy hood was set open.
