  1. Very impressive work in such a small scale. It would be impressive even if it was in 1/72nd scale.
  2. Beautifully finished and weathered Sea Fury.
  3. Even Tamiya haven't found a way to magically make a seem disapear, but I'll await the pictures of your finished, unpainted model
  4. Yes Airfix are obviously capable of designing a kit with greater detail and finesse but have to simplify things so they can get them molded correctly, just look at the frames on the landing gear, simple and a lot thicker than they should be but I'm guessing done so they get a usable part.
  5. I'm not sure about that, while the decals don't look too bad ( the the image is of low quality so it's hard to tell how good they are ), the plating puts me off; how do you put it together without needing to paint over seems?
  6. So is the whole of the roof lower on the A rather than a taper towards the tail?
  7. The concern is that the CAD model and the model itself only show the teardrop windows and the artwork incorrectly shows the teardrop windows as well. But at least the model shows the PR type canopy and since the sides are separate parts chances are the bulged ones in the kit.
  8. It says Airfix 1/72nd, so I'm going with that
  9. Looking at the built up model the side panels look separate, so hopefully in the kit we'll get two canopies, one with the roof blister and one without and then the optional bulged or blistered side panels.
  10. A nice update in Workbench. https://uk.airfix.com/community/blog-and-news/workbench/hawk-flies-nhs-flag-and-mosquito-exclusives?utm_source=ActiveCampaign&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Hawk+flies+NHS+flag%3A+NEW+Workbench!&utm_campaign=Airfix+-+Workbench+-+Week+7+2021%2F2022
  11. You might want to wait for the Clear Prop kit coming out this year.
  12. Excellent looking Hawk, with some very impressive weathering
