  1. Greetings from Chile! I present to you this little VW that kept me busy last week. Mainly an aircraft modeler but lately i've been putting all my attention to cars (sold a lot of aircraft kits also). Very enjoyable build, few problems to be adressed, decals are a bit on the thick side though, painted with automotive acrylic VW alpine white and clear coated with uretane 2K clear.
  2. Thanks everyone for your kind words, in fact there's son WIP photos in my photobucket library, i also noticed theres no serials on the wings (those HB sharks),, but should be an easy fix. http://s295.photobucket.com/user/escopetas/library/
  3. Thanks compatriota, i also noticed it and fixed it right away, you can see the pictures here now. Best Regards.
  4. Greetings comrades, I present to you this little fella, coming from the chinese manufacturer Hobbyboss The Hawker Seahawk was a workhorse for the Royal Navy during the decade of the 50 ', and a considerable number were exported to foreign operators, particularly the Netherlands and India. During the Suez Canal crisis in 1956, the type saw extensive action being used primarily as a ground attack aircraft, and 6 squadrons were deployed in the theatre operating from the aircraft carrier HMS Eagle and HMS Albion. Although being an excellent ground attack aircraft, the type saw replacement in 1958 by the newer Supermarine Scimitar and DH Sea Vixen, reaching higher speeds and service ceiling due to it's swept wing design, which curiously Hawker decided not included in the Seahawk, probably because the aircraft design is based heavily on the old piston engine Hawker Sea Fury. THE KIT - Excellent kit, great detail and good fit except for the area of ​​the nozzles and the junction with the rear fuselage, which needed a LOT of putty, I do not know if the proportions are right but outright it passes the test, it looks like a Seahawk. - Painting with Tamiya and K4 (Chilean Made) Acrylics. Built straight from the box with minor modifications mainly in the cabin. - YOU MUST PUT WEIGHT ON NOSE! contrary to what the instructions say :weep: :weep: Hope you like it, cheers from Chile!
  5. cracking finish on this one, credits to the very good hand brush painting, congrats!
  6. wow, that bird is really large, hope you can actually display it, cracking build.
  7. Nice job on this one, looking forward to see it finished!
  8. Thanks everyone for your kind comments, indeed the Blue Gray/White is a beautiful camo, i just love the look of old Buccaneers and Sea Vixens in that scheme, hoping to do some more RN stuff in the future!.
