AZ Models 1/48 Fairey Firefly Mk 1 - by Graham Mahoney - Pakenham, Victoria, Australia

All in all a very detailed but tricky shortish run multimedia kit from Eastern Europe with a wing fold set from Airwaves and a number of correction sets along with a vac formed canopy from Barracuda Studios. Decals were kindly donated to me and were spares from a Grand Phoenix Firefly, and rocket rails came from the spares box courtesy of a Tamiya Mosquito with the blast plates coming from the same place, this time ex-Tamiya Beaufighter.

As usual it is finished in acrylics, using Xtracrylix for the Sky and Dark Slate Grey, with Gunze providing the Extra Dark Sea Grey. Flory models washes we used along with Tamiya Weathering pigments and Tamiya Smoke for the weathering. Tamiya XF-86 Flat Clear sealed it all in.
