Hobbyboss 1/72 Hawker Sea Hawk RED DEVILS

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

This is the new member of my Aerobatic Collection. Hobbyboss 1/72 Sea Hawk Red Devils Aerobatic Team. The Hobbybos kit is really nice. I did not use putty anywhere, just sandpaper. It is the first time I paint with Vallejo acrylics, which I found very good becouse the drying time compared to enamels, wich allowed me to finish it only in 6 days from the opening of the box until the photo session.

The finish was made with Humbrol Clear Gloss Varnish and decals are from the "Royal Navy Aerobatic teams" set from Model Alliance.

Cheers!

Orlando.

Now that is something very nice indeed. I'm sure someone else started painting their aerobatic team red but can't for the life of me think who.

That's a very nice looking Sea Hawk in a very smart finish.

Very smart & nicely finished - this kit seems to capture the Seahawk lines very well

Very nice indeed Orlando :clap: 

 

It's good to hear that you liked the Hobby Boss kit. I hope to build a little group of Sea Hawks. I have an MPM kit and I heard that the Hobby Boss was a faster build.

 

Could I please ask; which Vallejo red did you use for the colour? It looks superb.

 

:goodjob:

Very very nice Orlando. Seeing this has the effect of making  me think I may NEED another HB Seahawk. :)

 Thanks for your kind words guys !

 

TonyTiger, The color is 71.085 Ferrari Red Model Air, over 2 white primer layers (red turns almost brown if you don't put a white layer first).
