This is the Airfix 1/48 B.57G with all the necessary corrections made to the kit to accurately represent a Vietnam era B.57G, in fact all the corrections are applicable to any canon armed B.57 in general. The ladder and bomb door and the door dolly are home made. I've used some after market parts from Edward, Aeroclub, and parts of the Classic Airframe B.57. The model is brush painted using Xtracrylix apart from the underside which is auto rattle can. The decals are a mix of kit and Zotz B.57 Canberra's in Vietnam ZTZ48/040. For the full build and all the corrections go to, http://ipmscanberrasig.webs.com/apps/forums/topics/show/8621422-1-48-airfix-classic-airframes-13-bs-b-57g-

John,

 

It looks like the corrections on the nose went well. I think I am glad I used the CA kit in doing my build. The "G" is the coolest B-57 though.

 

Nice build and paint.

I'll add my kudos! Your workmanship superbly blended all of your conversion and corrections so as I can't tell what's kit and what's yours! Cool Canberra! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Bill and GIL! It was quite a challenging but fun build, it's just a shame Airfix couldn't be bothered to get it right in the first place!
