Few pics of my current build, Airfix new tool Seaking HC.4. I'm afraid work and real life mean I'm not the fastest builder and my 'bench time' is (as I'm sure many others will agree) not as much as I'd like, so I'd struggle to maintain an interesting 'In Progress' thread but since this is a new tool, I thought you might like a peek at my progress. As for out of the box, I caved and added some seat belts from tape, comm's cables for the crew and a few wee bits of detail on the forward R/H 'broom cupboard' as I intend to have the crew door and main door open. I also added some prominent pipe work on the R/H sidewall and used tape painted in a darker colour to simulate sidewall panelling. With the interior done I buttoned up the fuselage with very little trouble. Due to the now well known tight tolerance issues with the new tool Airfix kits I dry fitted everything! Most of the window cut-outs required opening up slightly to get a good fit. The bubble window gave the most trouble and required the interior of the recess shaved to improve the fit, it's still not 100% but I can live with it as it is now. This afternoons challenge was drilling out the Lightning holes on the troop step! Not content with that I have also drilled out lightening holes on the jammer mounts on the fuselage sides Next up I need to get the cockpit glazing sections together and masked up, a job for my days off next week! Will post a wee update on any progress before then. Many thanks to my work colleague and HC.4 guru FAAKeith who has provided no end of info and guidance on detailing and what to watch out for. All comments and questions welcome, Thanks, Eng
I thought the Junglies had been retired? there's a couple been buzzing around Kent today at low level towards Manston( also being converted to a lorry park at present) Unless of course a "Lorry Park" is cover for a 4000 people refugee camp? Steve
First the obligatory picture of the boxes I think we all know what the insides look like! I haven't yet decided what aircraft to build other than a MK 4 in delivery condition with the white lettering. I was thinking of doing either a Pakistan aircraft with the Exocets (Old bobcat kit of the super puma has them I can rob) or an Indian navy one both decals on the way to me if eBay is to be believed. If not as you can see I have 2 set of C Scale conversion for the Mk 4 and decals for 8 different aircraft so may do a winter one or SFOR aircraft Anyway here we go....... Cockpits can be done with out choosing the 2nd aircraft yet. Rodders
