> Airfix Hurricane.
Posted by Rory - 04-19-14 16:17 - 0 comments
This one is finished. It's the new Airfix fabric wing Hurricane done in the colours of captured aircraft. To be honest it's based on a colour side view drawing from an old book and thats all the info I have. so it could be right or wrong, I don't know and, again to be honest I don't care. I built it because I built it years ago and wanted another crack at a fun scheme. Paints are all Xtracolor and Humbrol.









The code letters are slightly the wrong style but, again, I don't care.

> 1:48 Cutlass F7U-3M
Posted by Mike Williams - 04-19-14 06:11 - 4 comments
This was a lesson in turd polishing.
It was a commission from one of my regula customers who collects 1/48 USN aircraft.

I was considering doing an article for SAM whilst building it but it really is not worthy as its such an old inaccurate kit. Maybe it is ripe for the guys at Kinetic to tool up a brand new kit of this strange looking machine? who knows?

A horrible Kitech (Who?) repop of of the only-game-in-town 1/48 scale Hobbycraft Vought F7U Cutlass.



What on earth had I let myself in for?

A fight, that's what!!









But I was winning
Here she is primed and ready for painting...




I was doing the scheme from the 1/72 Fujimi VA-116 "Roadrunners" boxing. I scanned the decals and had masks made up to 1/48 via AdAstra in Canada.

I had to work out what bits to paint in what order. I guess their is no right or wrong way, but here is how I did it.

First I sprayed the leading edges of the tails bright Yellow...



Masked them off for the Blue stripe...



Unmasked and remasked both the Yellow and Blue off...



Next I sprayed the Black sections for the walkway masks and nose, tail and wing marking masks...



The masks were then applied and burnished down with a wooden toothpick....
