Airfix 1/72 Hampden - fin fiddling


I was unsure about the fins, they didn't quite look right...

a bit too tall and square, looked more like Whitley fins.


So this is where we started, compared with the kit fins, thanks to the great input from the guys at the UAMF, I decided to do a bit of shortening and shaping to get these...


follows the Hampden fin shape and slightly taller...

 

I'm a lot happier with them now.

So canopies to vac, and spinners to sort out, then we'll be almost at paint.

This is too much fun.
