The Hurricane MK 1  - 1/24 by Airfix

RFI

 

Hello and a happy new year to you all. I'd like to start the new year with the RFI of my last actual completed build of 2019. She has been built for a month or so but I didn't find the right moment to do the RFI.  You must excuse the sheer amount of pics once again but I do like to indulge myself sometimes.

I couldn't fit her in my little photo tent thing so I took her outside and took a few shots while the sky was bright and fell in love all over again.

The WIP can be found HERE and If you followed along you know how much effort I have put in to attempt to get her right, she might not be 100% but I hope that she will be useful to those wishing to build this lovely vintage kit.

I used.

Inside first I think.

and the parting shot....

Hurricane 1/24 RFI

 

That's your lot.....😍 Thankyou so much for indulging but /she is such a joy to photograph.

I hope you enjoyed the build if you followed along and if not I hope you enjoyed these shots, If not I can't help you . 🤪

 

I should now be up to date with my RFIs. I have added my meng tank and the Torino today too.

I have my current Gundam kit to complete then I'll be back to Aeroplanes. ( it's a bit lonely over in sci-fi land to be fair. )

 

 

All the best and as always happy modelling.

 

Johnny.😎

I'm looking at that pic of you holding it at the rudder/empennage and can't help a slight shudder.
Lovely finish, the wash keeps it subtle enough.
(just the broken aileron cabling to fix then)

Thanks. What’s the cable now? Oh man did I miss something again?? 🙃

Hell's bells. I can't believe I've missed the build thread of this. I'm going over to have a look.

She's a real beauty...and gi-flippin-normous too.

I love the black and white pic. It's really evocative.

Bloody lovely!

Apart, as mentioned, from both ailerons being down. Please put one up, as required by aerodynamic requirements and HM Regulations!
