Special Hobby 1/32 Lockheed T-33 "T-Bird over Europe"

By Michael Franz

Some pictures of a model which I mostly used for trying something new. The metallic surface was done in a new way.

The kit is coming from the Czech. Company Super Hobby and is a typical short run kit. The plastic parts are mostly lower detailed and the fitting is not as good as you expect today. The kit also includes resin and photo-etched parts, as well as decals for different versions, some in metal optic, others in 3-colour camo.

Here I have used metal wax which I ordered several time ago from USA. This was applied with a lint-free cloth and polished afterwards. A layer of glossy clear coat secured the surface before the next steps. Then the red was painted, the decals added and a 2nd layer of clear coat applied, before finishing the painting with a washing of black oil colors.
