1/77 Revell-Lodela F-89D Scorpion

Gallery Article by El Rey on Aug 5 2010


I show you this relic, very very old kit, more than 30 years old.  It was manufactured under licence from Revell.  Lodela was a pioneer in Mexico for model kits.  What a age!  The kit has beautiful details and is ugly too, however it is nice.  The extreme wings and control surfaces were painted using Gunze.  The exhaust was done with Alclad.  Fuselage and wings were paint with Mr Color Supermetal.

I used the preshading black-white to get the bare metal effect.  Cote of Flat Humbrol and Crystal-Cote(Floquil).  The scorpion is real, is stuffed. 

The weathering is oils and turpenoid...
