Airfix 1/72 Avro Anson converted to Z*RB 3158 (ex N4927 sent to SA 14/1/1941) of SAAF No.35 Squadron, Congella, South Africa. Used for instructing crews on waterbourne techniques before they moved onto the squadron's Sunderlands.

Superb build Richard and not a subject you see very often.

How did you paint the canopy? Looks like stripes of coloured tape, very neat.

White decal sheet cut into strips ( a bit on the wide side in retrospect), decal film (painted to match) is my preferred choice for canopy framing in 1/72, particularily on old Airfix kits where the canopy framing is absent or indistict.

Mind you at one point I actually opened her up to re-affix the radio which had come loose, which allowed me to add some internal framing from plastic rod.
