  1. Have made some more progress, fuselage is all together. Had a bit of a break for time at RIAT and a summer holiday. The air intakes are driving me mad, I've had a go with the filler, but still some unsightly gaps around those areas which need sorting before painting.
  2. After a lot of small parts pinging out of tweezers, I'm fairly happy with how the seats look. I decided to leave off a couple of the smallest parts as sometimes it's good to know when to stop.
  3. Have made a little progress this week, so here's the first photos In the box: A selection of aftermarket - masks, pitot, control panels, seatbelts, and wing gloves: It felt mean sanding off all of the detail from the Revell cockpit, but the metal parts look far better than I could paint Seats are starting to take shape now: Hopefully a bit more will get done this evening, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get all of the straps onto the seats without losing any!

  4. Hi I'm a little late with starting this, but I hope my choice of build will be welcome. I'll be using the fairly new Revell 1/48th Gr 4, together with Eduard photoetch interior and belts, and Xtradecal decals. Initial photos to follow soon. Steve
  5. Some more progress to report. Landing gear installed and a little weathering done. I've finished it off with a few coats of Vallejo matt acrylic. It needed thinning down to go through my airbrush but the finish is nice. The Pitot which had broken off has been found and reattached so I'm calling this one done :-) A few phone pics are below. Thanks for stopping by Steve
  6. Thanks! Made some more progress today. Decals on and starting to fit the pylons and gear
  7. A little more progress this afternoon. Gun packs drilled and mounted and exhaust nozzles installed Steve
  8. The better match for the grey arrived and has gone on along with the green. Had a go at some post shading and bleaching too, still getting the hang of it. Next step is making around the olive green panels on the tail and then adding some varnish.
  9. I thought I'd make some progress today and spray on the dark sea grey. I used Vallejo Model Air Dark Sea Grey but it now looks far too dark. Compared it to a Sea Hawk painted with Humbrol Extra Dark Sea Grey and it's even darker than that. I guess I'll have to order a different brand to get a better match
  10. Gave my new airbrush a try today, an H and S which is certainly better engineered than the very cheap one I'd be using before. Spraying the Humbrol 166 acrylic was still a challenge, it might just be me but I struggle with that brand and try to stick to Tamiya where possible. Am aiming to get the grey and green on later this week. Steve
  11. They look good, you're making great progress with these 4! Steve
