1/72 Heller Vampire Mk.III, 401 Sqn., RCAF
The Heller Vampire Mk.V kit is mainly out-of-box, with two exceptions.
Model by Scott Hemsley
- The most obvious one is the wingtips. These came from a Spitfire.
In this case, a Heller Spitfire (the wingtips were separate parts). The
wingtips are almost a perfect match for the Vamipre wings, with only very
minor sanding required, to slightly alter the plan view of the tips.
- The second exception is the clear "inspection panel(?)" in the nose,
forward of the windscreen.
