The first of the many! Coastguard Jayhawk

Recommended Posts

Hi all, it’s time to crack on with clearing a couple more projects! First up is Hobbyboss’s 1/72 Coastguard Jayhawk, which has been on the go for years as I was put off by the masking to paint it. Here is how it started

Finally got it masked

And how it now sits with the painting unmasked and some decals applied (sorry missed photos for the bit in the middle)

Next up, a good box set, a quiet few evenings and the rest of the decals to do. They are very thin and break very easily (as you may notice with the yellow on the tail😉)

 

Have a good weekend

Graham

Oh yes, it will go great with the Yellow Sea king and the orange Dauphin, looking to make a small base for this one with a picture frame but the deserve a little helipad.

The decals were completed and gloss coat applied, couple more nights work and this one will be ready for the shelf but alas time ran out for this GB. Thanks again and see you in next years KUTA!

Final coat of varnish and the rotors and I think I’m there

Did you get to finish this? Impressive. I’m hoping to build this and the Dolphin in both schemes. Any pointers? What were your reds and oranges? Thanks, and fab work again

Yep, I’ll post pics of it and the dolphin and I’ll fish out the colours I used for both. It took ages to get round to finishing it but just bit the bullet in the end. Relatively straight forward builds just check where the decals and the aerials go before gluing 😉 May have caught me out and required treating🤦‍♂️.

And here it is with the rest of the SAR team.

Jayhawk was sprayed with Halfords paint, appliance white and Fiat Red Orange. The dauphin was painted with Xtracolor X104 International Orange (fs 12197)

 

Good luck!
