Scramble! - Airfix Hurricane in a weekend - 2
Little Jim got his colours on..
I'll give him a water colour and Klear wash, a flatting and he'll be sorted.
Spinner got painted, and blades snipped, nice fitting, not much to tidy up, just a bit of a step..
Sliced off the plasticard in the wingroots..
Bit of gapage at the rear of the wing joint, so it was filled with super glue gel..
wheels were painted last night, and this morning once, the rear joint filled a big bit of sprue cemented in for the mount. Also a couple of big sink marks were sorted out, shame about the ribbing, as I lost a bit by the sanding.
A bit of correction fluid for the tailplanes..
and I ran a scriber along the top and bottom of the exhausts..
So state of scramble at 1100 hrs Saturday here in NZ.
Sort some lunch out for the kids, then I need to do some weeding in the vegie garden, I don't want to get the airbrush out so it'll be out with the hairy sticks tonight and some Humbrol authentic colours ..
Great fun this..
