Airfix 1/48 Mk1 Hurricane was created by Fritz
Currently working on the airfix 1/48 Hurricane. Not a bad little kit, has some good detail in the cockpit.
Had a little issue with the main wing being slightly out, but that was probably me not being careful. and fitting the cockpit.
Will be mounting this onto a stand, which is a first for me, as I have never done something like this before. I thought it would look cool in an inflight pose.
I pilot painting skills aint the greatest, but thought he looked fine for what I'll be doing.

Anyway, hope you like it. I'll try to keep up with the build progress.

Thanks Grover!

@Shaun yea its a nice little kit, though I had a small issue with mating the wings to the fuselage, but I think that was my fault.
Goes together pretty well.

Onto the painting part now. Using Humbrol paints for this as I have a few that I'm going to try use up. Almost had a disaster when using Humbrol 30, which was the number listed in the instructions, came out this gastly green. Painted over the top with Humbrol 116, and it looks a hell of alot better.

Gloss coat is on, and I have started decals.

This was what Humbrol 30 turned out like.


This is 116

Thanks Kresimir! Yea grass was one idea I was thinking of doing.
Even considering putting a print on there. Hmmm not sure.

Gloss coat used was Tamiya clear X22 thinned with tamiya Lacquer thinner.
