Hurricane63 Posted October 25, 2012 Share Posted October 25, 2012 ... without the Musketeer stripes. Been waiting since 1978 to build one of these, ever since I saw that Frog made a 1/72, so after a 30 year hiatus from modelling I got my chance. I thoroughly enjoyed making this - I know, a few errors, I shan't point them out - I know what they are. Also I know they didn't carry the torpedo - but it looks very, well... naval! Sorry abou the rushed photography I'll have to get a few tips from you guys, there's some great stuff on here, but I wanted to snap it before the cleaning lady came round - I have a Sea Fury that was 'dusted' once and never quite looked the same after she tried to repair it! I'd recommend this kit to anyone, went together a dream with a couple of exceptions - the wing roots need a bit of encouragement to line up with the corresponding fuselage - nothing that superglue and a firm hand can't deal with, also the rockets aren't great - not quite sure why they have to be made they way they are: with separate tails that don't fit very well (and keep breaking off). I wish I'd painted the EDSG first though - would have made masking much simpler. The Florry models dark wash worked quite well I think bringing up the surface detail (and showing up some 'issues' in my finishing too). This was my first time with Micro Sol / Set - which I also though worked well (despite me spilling most of both bottles about an hour after getting it home - those tall, thin, light plastic bottles are just asking to be knocked over by a klutz like me! The contra-prop does work! 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
