    So Revell didn't mold a separate exhaust collector ring for the front of the engine cowling ? Well, that's a fail. Now the modeller will have to carefully cement these together and try to remove the 3 seam lines. A separate piece, like almost every other kit manufacturer has done, would be a better choice. Chris

    Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk.I

    No worries. I bought one with filters years ago. It's still sealed in a big Ziploc bag. Chris Yep. Did it in I.G. Chris

    Thanks, Terry. Yes, I looked at your build as soon as you posted it. That came out really nice. Just because I was using my phone camera, I tried a couple cockpit shots. Here they are. Chris

    The Weather,

    This afternoon, up here on The Backside Of Beyond, it crept up to a brisk, windy 5C. Winter's coming! Chris

    Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk.I

    Hi-de-ho peeps! Another question for you masters of models. As it's getting into cold weather up here ( at 3:00 pm it was up to 3C ), I guess I won't be using my Tamiya rattlecans to paint my Hurc on the back deck. I have a couple option for painting: Option 1: brush paint it with either an acrylic ( Tamiya, Gunze Sangyo, Polly Scale/Polly S ) or my old Humbrol Authenics. Option 2: I break out the airbrush and attempt that. It's a Badger 150 IL. I used it once over 25 years ago, so my experience is zip! If I go this route, I thought I'd use Tamiya paint. I have colour mixes to get good colour, paint retarder and Tamiya thinner. I also have an old, small filter/fan unit. It's probably not the best but better than a boot to the man-vegetables. I'm leaning toward the airbrush. Any advice any of you may have will be gratefully appreciated. Chris

    Checking in

    Hello from Western Canada. Your story sounds a lot like mine, except I stayed with 1/72 scale. I have not completed any kits in over 30 years but I am now slowly working on an Airfix Hawker Hurricane, with the intention of completing it. Chris

    Hannants Wins Again!

    On Tuesday morning, September 11, 20018, I ordered two of the newly released Special Hobby RCAF Northrop Delta kits. Today at high noon, September 18, they arrived. Only 7 days from the UK to Northern Alberta, Canada. Seeing as Canada Post is about to go on strike again, this is practically a frikkin' miracle! Thank you again, Hannants, for your most excellent service. Chris
  14. That's a real beauty. Good back story, too. Chris
