on Aug 6 2007. My apologies to Miguel
for missing this article on that special day. Steve
This is my first submission
to ARC and I hope you like it. August the 6th is Bolivia's National Day.
This is the old Hasegawa
Kit. I didn't change the panel lines (too much work ) I just added some
details inside the cockpit.
I tried to match the colours with the real pictures because I could not get much information
about this airplane. But I found some really good pictures on the net (just few but good).
About the decals, please forgive me, they
are not from any sheet, but from 4 or 5. I cut and put them together and
tried to match the picture. At that time I could not find a better
images below to see larger images
I was really happy building
this model because it is from my country, but I had a hard time finding
information and decals.
This T-33 are based in
"El Alto" at more than 4000mt high and are still in
service. All I can say they look cute compared to the Chilean's F-16s or
the Peruvian's Mig-29s.
Now I got the Aztec decal
sheet for South-American's T-33, a Heller 1/72 T-33 , and resin
seats and I hope to start with that project soon (not likely, but we
always hope don't we?)
