  1. This kit by Italeri is sublime. After seeing many great builds of the Airfix 1;24th scale I wanted to add a 48th version to my collection. The detail is pretty good, but I wanted to add that littler bit more. Eduard provided a superb PE set for the main grille, cockpit and rockets which in my opinion puts this kit as one of the best on the market. I used Tamiya primer with a dark pre-shade of the panel lines. I hen finished the scheme using Vallejo air, using a post shading technique and opted to paint the D-Day stripes rather than using the decals provided. The kit was then given a gloss coat before adding weathering and a panel wash. The aircraft itself is from RAF Thorney Island, which is one of my local WWII airfields, so it has some meaning to my collection.

    1/72 tiff

    So chaps! After being encouraged by cookie to do a wip on my typhoon (he is a very encouraging chap which is appreciated as i don't always encourage myself.... actually I started my spitfire wip as MG encouraged me.... maybe I need to grow a pair) I was not going to start it until I had finished my Malta spitfire.... but then I ripped a transfer off and got a bit annoyed by it all and decided I would start the early.....so. This I what I will be building Nice kit with great detail... below is the option I am going for I build the old tool tiff from airfix when I was younger and always remembered enjoying it. As far as an aircraft I gave always had a soft spot for this brute... but it's always been overshadowed in my love of the sea fury and tempest as a beefcake ground attack, still it's another one of hawkers great stable gun platforms like my beloved hurricane (she's at the top of the tree IMHO) So here's what I did, not much just a bit of interior painting really.... but hey! It's a start. So I didn't follow airfix's paint guide as a lot of people have questioned it (?) So I have taken from other builds I have watched, hopefully this will make it correct. I will see if I can get the aluminium details done and close the ac up by the end of the week, but please don't hold your breath... its against my health and safety policy. Any help and advice is always welcome so feel free, even though this is not my favourite ac I still love it and want to do it proud and there are a lot of people out there that know a great deal more than me. Cheers all Rob P.s. rockets on and a gun bay open is the plan! I am saving the big boobs. ... sorry don't know where that came from .... I meant bombs for another project
