Default Tca vanguard 1/48 scale

I have been working on this machine for nearly a year now and applied the final clear coat today. It is a one off built by a chap in South Africa. It came unfinished and required a lot of work to get it to my standard. Decals are from Mike at Vintage Flyer and they were great to work with. That said getting around the nose was a challenge and I ended up painting the lower nose section.

Very nice model. Nice to see you have the front air intakes on the nose. (caution wildlife on the runway) I especially like the etching of the propellor arc's. I have never seen that before.

Is the placard original or did you have that reproduced? Thats very interesting also.

Thank you and the plate was done by the same chap, obviously he is a skilled tin basher as well. I have attached more pics illustrating how it looked when I received it last year.
