I found this old F27 hidden away and is at least 19 years old. Its in desperate need of restoration. It has sat on my shelf for at least a year and I have finally begun the restoration.



One of the rear landing gear was also broken and needed repair

I stripped back the decals and there was quite a bit of UV damage

I filled any gaps I could with Tamiya filler and sanded it back, trying to remove any seams or joins, then gave it a coat of primer.

I came across another 1/144 F27 so began doing both at the same time. Off to the paint shop.



The 737 I recently built is in the background. I wanted to keep the lower fuselages the same shade.

The restoration F27 is awaiting it's new set of decals, I decided to do the other one in the BXF Mount Cook livery



I still need to do some work on the anti glare shield and paint the props. Hopefully both will be finished soon.

Pretty much done, might add some nav lights yet. A bit disappointed I didn't get rid of the seam down the middle like I planned.
