I finished this on Saturday having taken me 4 months. It’s a commission build for somebody leaving and it’s been made from the Italeri 1/48 212 kit. I work at MW so have popped into Hangar 3 when I needed to for reference. The colours are the Hataka range and are a very good match. The orange is the old orange as they changed spray painters and the current is very err orange, but this is what the guys wanted. It gets delivered tomorrow so I thought I’d get a couple of shots.

The worst part of the kit is the front windscreen absolutely shocking fit. After all the effort I thought this would detract from the finished article, but perseverance paid off.

Superb 212. The finish looks splendid. I must try Hataka.

I was out on the pan colour matching and making notes on the rings so I could scale it down. They really were that weathered on some spots. It would have been easier to paint a completed circle. MW has just has its apron & taxi way resurfaced so they’re all shiny new now.

Very nicely done, you would not tell that you had issues with the windscreen. Also I’ve heard good things about the Hataka paints, were these the lacquer ones? And how did they spray?

Yep the orange range. Never used them before, sprayed really well straight from the bottle and glossed with Windsor & Newton varnish. What I did find though was the microsol n set had a reaction with the Hataka paints. Bit of a panic moment but quickly cotton budded.
