The Great Hawker Named-After-A-Weather-Event Aircraft Group Build Day 5

Good evening,

Been pottering around with the Typhoon this afternoon and I managed to get the wings together, along with the u/c doors.





I painted the inside of the ailerons black for some depth. Dunno if it'll make any difference, but it seemed like a good idea at the time!

The doors are not as flush as I'd like, but I managed to get a better result than on my Thunderbolt.

I'll work on the pilot tomorrow...along with getting my class' reading texts and follow up activities sorted out for this coming week.

Well done to Jack Sarge - he finished first!

Model on,

Nick

  3. No thanks my friend,- unfortunately I went a bit OCD with this one and I need to ease off a tad...(bit like the poster of Lance Corporal Jones I have on my office at work which has those wise words "Don't Panic" written underneath).
    I shall now just be a keen observer of everyone else's progress. :)

    1. Fair enough. Still, if you find yourself twiddling your thumbs before the end of May...

    1. Thanks Dan. I'll be interested to see what you do with the radiator on your one...let's face it, it's not the most sophisticated model on the market, eh?!

  6. Nick, it will be interesting to see how much effect the pre-shading has. I've often tried this, but I just can't get it to work. Mind you, I brush paint, so that will probably explain it.

    1. Well, this is the first time I've done it, and I too will be brush painting, so...we'll see, I guess.
