The Hurricane MK 1 - 1/24 by Airfix RFI Hello and a happy new year to you all. I'd like to start the new year with the RFI of my last actual completed build of 2019. She has been built for a month or so but I didn't find the right moment to do the RFI. You must excuse the sheer amount of pics once again but I do like to indulge myself sometimes. I couldn't fit her in my little photo tent thing so I took her outside and took a few shots while the sky was bright and fell in love all over again. The WIP can be found HERE and If you followed along you know how much effort I have put in to attempt to get her right, she might not be 100% but I hope that she will be useful to those wishing to build this lovely vintage kit. I used. Airfix Hurricane 1/24 Tamiya acrylics Tamiya weather powders Flory washes. Ezy line I think that was it. Without further ado Ladies and gent I give you a Massive Hurricane Mk1. Inside first I think. Phew!!!!! Now get a fresh brew maybe a biscuit and enjoy the outside shots. and the parting shot.... That's your lot..... Thankyou so much for indulging but /she is such a joy to photograph. I hope you enjoyed the build if you followed along and if not I hope you enjoyed these shots, If not I can't help you . I should now be up to date with my RFIs. I have added my meng tank and the Torino today too. I have my current Gundam kit to complete then I'll be back to Aeroplanes. ( it's a bit lonely over in sci-fi land to be fair. ) All the best and as always happy modelling. Johnny.
The RFI of "Yellow nosed baskets, six o'clock high" 1/24 Messerschmitt bf 109-E by Airfix. Hi There. It's been three months in the making but after a lot of blood, sweat and stuck together fingers we have an RFI of epic proportions. It hasn't been a particularly sunny day today but I set up a little booth in the dining room and went a little bit snap happy. The build Started with a slightly drunken purchase while on holiday in the new forest, and escalated to a hell of a build. scratch built parts for the pit engine, undercarriage and bays, a lovely donated instrument panel by "Yahu" and some camo masks sent by "top notch masks for models" Thanks guys. Thank you to Everyone who contributed and sent photo ref during the build, Too many to mention but you know who you are and again my greatest thanks. The build got it's name from @TonyTiger66 who mentioned this film. And who could resist ? not me that's for sure. During the build I found some info about the real yellow 9 here. http://www.aviationmuseum.co.uk/109.htm and @tango98 sent me amongst other really helpful words and pictures this report. "Report No. 3/162 Me 109 Crashed on 15.11.40 at 11.30 hours at Horndon-on-the-Hill, Essex Map Reference: M.1002. Markings: not known. The cause of the crash is presumed to be fighter action. Pilot baled out. Aircraft dived into ground at speed and is almost completely buried. Evidence of M.G.17’s in wings and armament therefore presumably 4 M.G.17’s. Bomb rack for one 250kg bomb traced. Pilot prisoner. No further details possible." This turned out to be the point where I had to build a bomb rack and 250kg bomb for our lovely lady. After much effort we are here today with a final model. I'll stop rattling on and get on with the good bit. May I present the "Airfix 1/24 Messerschmitt BF109-E" with extra stuff. And that's all folks. She was airbrushed with Tamiya acrilycs and weatherd with a hairy stick and various weathering pigments and pencils. I think she turned out quite well. I hope you enjoyed the WIP as much as I did. if you didn't see it you can find it here Thanks again for all your help and interest and I hope you'll join me in me in my next build that can be found here. Take care and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Take care and most of all...... Happy Modelling Johnny boy.
