.....I'm a proper modeller now, lol!

and all on one kit, I'm building this airfix hurricane as part of the battle of Britain campaign here, up to now I've used replacement resin exhausts and propeller, a p/e set to jazz up the cockpit, topped off with a resin gunsight, and I boxed in the wheelbays with plasticard.




can't wait to start painting this.
*edit* I nearly forgot I've re scribed the raised panel line as well.

don't rush it Phil,
it would be a shame to ruin it now.

when will it be ready for 'powder coat and chrome'?

I think by the time I've finished filling and fettling the exterior, paint should go on some time next week.
Going to try a new way of pre shading on this one too that might be a bit easier than firing black paint all over with my airbrush.
