Revell 1/32 Hawker Hunter.


Recommended Posts

As its a bigger build i feel a WIP is called for.Started last night for an hour looking at the instructions ,threw them down n started with the cockpit (as ya do),so many fiddly bits for my podgy hands to hold.Left out the seat cause im bound to knock it loose before i start painting anyway and it gets in the way of the masking tape.Clamped it in the front bodywork and called it a night.Far to hot in the kitchen so i left it till the sun went over and got the fan out .Checked the cockpit was ok and continued with the other bigger body parts.Rear body assembly no bother,wings, no bother,come to the exhaust and things started to go a bit strange.Pulled the drawings out of the bin but they were as much help as a chocolate fireguard.took a while to work out where the exhaust funnel sat in the exhaust cowling.All together a good bit work done on the hunter.Im leaving it overnight to dry off properly and will assemble the main body parts together in the morning .Thanks for looking ,onwards and upwards.
