“LET’S GET WET!” GROUP BUILD IS NOW ON. JAN 1, 2023 - July 1, 2023 ×

Fly MK IIC Hurricane re-do


Recommended Posts

I built this kit a couple of years ago and never was very happy with the results. It's been sitting on the shelf gathering dust and getting broken so now I think I will re-do the markings, etc. I intend to do the Hurricane flown by Kuttlewascher of Number 1 Squadron in 1942 on night intruder ops. Not much work involved other than removing the chin scoop, adding the short scoop, making some repairs and doing the repaint, etc. I have the decals so that won't be a problem.:)

Way to go .. and a awesome way to make a save from the SOD.

Just a bit confused (nothing new) as the top image is not the same as the bottom image. Was the work done?

Going to be focused on this one :popcorn: if I didn't miss the party

Keep 'em comin

That is the old scheme Peter. The new one is in the 1st photo (black undersides).

How did you find the Fly Hurricane, you get differing view points?

Actually it was a PITA to build. All due to the poor fit of the cockpit assembly. Other than that not a big deal. :)

Fantastic progress - decaling looks painted on and looking so good. Glad you decided to do the re-do and show us, we can always go back and change/correct what needs to be done.

Keep 'em comin

Peter

Thanks Peter. Coming along with the decals although I had to replace the serial numbers with some from my stash. The Techmod numbers were a bit over size. Not a big deal though. :)

I think it's great that you were able to re-do this model, and the photos show you did

it with great skill. I'll be returning to modeling soon and I hope to be doing a camouflage

Pattern on one of the models I'll be doing. What was the nozzle size on the airbrush

You used? I have an Iwata airbrush with a .3mm nozzle size will this work ok for Camouflage or do I need something smaller? I'm thinking of purchasing another

Iwata brush with a .2mm nozzle. The price on the Iwata brush I'm considering, I think, is 

pretty reasonable , but if what I have is ok I could save the money. Thanks; I would

Appreciate your input.

Hi Paul,

I use a old Paasche H airbrush I've had for over 20 years or more. The nozzle # has rubbed off over the rears but all their nozzles are adjustable. The H brushes are sort of the "standard" brush but they also have a "F" which is a bit smaller and is for very fine work. However, I hardly ever use it and I get the wanted results from my "H". I don't know how much help this is but there it is. Good luck!!! :)

Thanks for your reply. That's pretty good work for an old Paasche!
