I started this one as I wanted a straightforward build.

Little did I know I had a 'Friday kit' that suffered from some of the moulding problems Airfix were having at the time.

Warped fuselage, excess plastic on the joins and in some orifices (nasty) and a hugely complex cockpit assembly were all overcome in the WiP:

 

Done now though, finished in Colourcoats apart from the Hataka PRU on the bottom.

W&N satin varnish and Flory black wash.

I hope you like it :)

That did turn out well. I'm still a bit out on the Swift, they remind me of a Hunter's ugly step sister but built like you've done, it's turned out quite handsomely. :)

Wowah. With all the Helichopper action I missed the RFI. She’s a stunner. I particularly like the wash. Brilliant. 👌🙌🙌🙌
