This has been a nice fun cheap build. It is built straight from the box. The only things i added were basic belts cut from a brown envelope , Airscale instruments that i had laying around and a partial Aveaology sheet. I say partially as i was too heavy handed with them and ruined them. The only ones left were the "ZWEI" under the cockpit and the serials. The roundels are from the kit and the codes i masked and airbrushed on. Weathering is the bare minimum exhaust and gun stains. Took just over a week and the actual kit was only 25 quid , so its been a great build. So much less stress than adding extra detail. Mosquito and Spitfire next for the 1/24 collection!

Ooh that's lovely - and you got a very good fit on the infamous engine cowling panels too B)

I wish I had the space to build some 1/24 aircraft.

Kind regards,

Thanks everyone. This kit was a really good one. Everything fitted really well and i used hardly any filler at all.

Heres some more. I really didnt want that fantastic little Merlin to go to waste , so it will be painted up and sit alongside the Hurricane.

A lovely build and really like the scheme too. Not normally a fan of one looking too clean, but the very subtle weathering has worked really well :)

 

one of of the challenges with these big builds IMO is that they come with some great engine detail, but I like them with the covers one, so I end up being torn on showing off what the kit provides or enjoying the simplicity of the build and clean lines with the covers on! I like your choice here :thumbsup:

Amazing!  Can't believe it took just over a week.

I would need a lot longer and do less of a job anyway. :(

Well done!

Thanks everyone. The Merlin is painted up now and looks nice. If anyone is building the same kit and closing the cowls heres a tip. Cut all of the internal framing out , it makes life so much easier.Luckily theres a seperate mount for the exhausts so the Merling is not needed.

Great build. Very tidy. I did wonder about the engine. An external display alongside the aircraft is a great idea.

Great build. Picked this kit up today from The Works for just £20.00. Will hopefully start soon. If I get anywhere near as good a build will be very happy.
