    1/72 Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk.I A02067

    Hi guys,I have finally got some time to upload some photos of the little bit of progress that I have done on the Hurricane.As with most kits we have started with the cockpit.First thing was to prime the areas using Ak Black Primer:Untitled by Neal, on FlickrThen I sprayed the sides of the cockpit using MRP Interior Grey-Green:Untitled by Neal, on FlickrAnd then did the metal work on the cockpit using Vallejo Metal Colour Aluminiu:Untitled by Neal, on FlickrOnce that has dried off I’ll come back and weather the cockpit and get the decal on for the instrument panel.More to come soon(ish).Neal

    1/72 Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk.I A02067

    Hi chaps, I’ll be making a start on this one next week once I have finished this set of 5x12 hour shifts running around in my ambulance!! I will be doing a video build for it as well, but the forum policy is that I can’t share them here. But if you look in my signature you’ll see a link to my youtube channel! Thank you for an amazing bit of info I will look at that thread later! Neal
  4. Hi chaps,So I am going to be starting this kit shortly, I’ll be building it for a facebook group build but would like to share it with you guys too.As always I’ll start you off with some photos of the box, instructions, decals and sprues.Lovely box art on the front of this one:Untitled by Neal, on FlickrThe instructions are nice and clear, not too many steps to this kit either so should go together relatively quickly:Untitled by Neal, on FlickrUntitled by Neal, on FlickrUntitled by Neal, on FlickrUntitled by Neal, on FlickrUntitled by Neal, on FlickrUntitled by Neal, on FlickrDecals look rather nice, printed by cartograph I believe:Untitled by Neal, on FlickrThe sprues, typical soft-is Airfix plastic, but some rather nice details for the scale:Untitled by Neal, on FlickrUntitled by Neal, on FlickrUntitled by Neal, on FlickrUntitled by Neal, on FlickrUntitled by Neal, on FlickrI’m looking forwards to starting this one, I’m doing it in the RAF markings, so it won’t be too weathered ad it was a show bird, it is going to be interesting to get the weathering right.Neal

    Revell 1/72 A-109 K2 Rega

    So I have finally got an update on the Augusta 109:I started to mask up the kit:IMG_0795 by Neal, on Flickr by Neal, on FlickrIn preparation for the application of the primer:Untitled by Neal, on FlickrThe next step should be laying down some paint to get the wire and then the red colours on.Neal
  8. I have also done the following work on the Tucano.I masked the canopy and brush painted it black:Untitled by Neal, on FlickrI then primed it with Stynelryz, I couldn’t be bothered to changed the needle set so just thinned the primer down quite a but with some 99%IPA and it stayed pretty good through the 0.2mm nozzle:Untitled by Neal, on FlickrNext I’ll be checking the seams and getting ready to put some colour on it.Neal
  9. Hey everyone now that I have got two GB entries off the bench I need to get this Tucano back on the go, so here is some work I have done so far.Although this Tucano is not Airfix’s best work, it is enjoyable so far. I got the tailplanes on and the small blade type things on the tail. Then I dry fitted the canopy as I will be dipping it in Klear soon and wanted to see what the fit was like:IMG_1439 by Neal, on FlickrNot the best suffice to say, I ended up sanding the instrument panel cowling down a bit:IMG_1438 by Neal, on FlickrEventually I got a half decent fit that will go down well with some tamiya tape or elastic bands to keep it in place whilst the glue goes off:IMG_1437 by Neal, on FlickrSo next I'll be masking the canopy once she has dried after a dip in Klear.Thank you for looking.Neal

    Nice work! I found this one after seeing your F/A-18E Superhornet RFI. I just say this is just as good, it’s a pity the weapons decals caused you trouble but hey it is still a fantastic looking kit.

  12. That is a very impressive paint job you have done, I very much like the tonal variation on the upper wings and also the discolouration on the engine bays. It also has a nice load out! All in all well done! Thanks for sharing it with us.
