  1. The results are excellent! Looks really good together with the Hercules. I must dig both of mine out someday.
  2. Stunning pair of 'silver wing' machines. Just love this era of the RAF. Great job on the brush painting too. Wow!
  3. They're really really nice. Scrubbed up rather well I love the earlier splinter colour scheme
  4. Thanks buddy! Yes I used a white base coat first, then a nice solid orange (vallejo model color bright orange) and then several light coats of humbrol 209 fluorescent fire orange building up until i got the desired finish. On some of the early Hunters it was quite a bright reddish colour then faded to orange. Later on the scheme was revised to light aircraft grey and bright red replacing the dayglo.
  5. Thanks Steve! It's not a bad kit at all really. If you can concentrate on the nose area and remove the deep trench lines here by filling and sanding and also blending in where the nose section meets the fuselage behind the cockpit spine then it will improve the look massively. I also opened up the canopy as I think it helps take your eyes off any shape issues. Apart from that if you want to put in some more work you could do with some aftermarket seats, and a better interpretation of the fairing around the tailpipe. On my next one I'll try to add some kind of blanking plates inside the air intakes as you can see daylight right through to the wheel wells. But it's a lot of fun to build and as you expect from any matchbox kit.... the fit of parts is excellent!
  6. Thanks very much. I applied a nice solid orange basecost first then airbrushed multiple thinned coats of the dayglo on top. I did have a bit of a disaster with it first time around though as the Humbrol acrylic thinners reacted with either the silver Vallejo or the Gunze Aqueous primer and turned crazy so i had to strip it all back and start again. I then thinned the Humbrol with Vallejo thinners and had no problems so i didn't really know if anybody else had experienced this before?
  7. Excellent build... and the deck diorama is just superb!
