Pacific Models Hurricane.

So here is my next attempt at a flying thing, it will be built OOB as usual, separating the resin parts from their plugs was bloody hard work but nice detail, the interior green [testors] seems a bit pale so I will green things up a bit and then add the seatbelts and do the detail painting tomorrow,

Nice work Steve

 

Watch out for all that resin dust though. It isn't very pleasant stuff and you should really avoid having the stuff a ) floating around while you're cutting and b ) lying around your workspace.

 

I tend to either do my cutting/sanding with a vacuum cleaner running and tube held close by to suck up all the dust straight away or do the cutting/sanding wet so no dust to contend with.

Yeah your right Matt, I wear a mask and as soon as I am finished cutting I vacuum it up and wipe everything down with a damp cloth, then wash my hands, dislike cutting the stuff really some manufacturers leave nice little plugs others leave great big wedges!

A little more done after messing around a while trying to get the rear bulkhead and instrument panel in one half and aligned, I realised that I could put the fuselage halves together and put everything in from below giving a more secure fit and alignment, the fuselage has gone together pretty well the worst part being under the nose but it will be easy to pull into line,

Max you will enjoy this kit, the plastic seems a little soft and the instructions a bit vague at times but nothing serious, the main wing is now on and now I have a bit of work to do, the fit is not to good, I found I had to attach the upper wings separately so I could get them to conform to the curve of the wing root and the cut outs in the starboard wing leading edge are not even so a bit of cutting and shimming will have to be done, I would have posted some pics. but I have just downloaded windows 8.1 and now am unable to cut/paste pics. from photobucket!!

Hope you get your Windows issue sorted Steve.  The wing problem sounds very much like the one that I had recently with a Classic Airframes Fairey Battle (a well named aircraft!) so hopefully my experience in resolving that will help with the Hurricane. :)

Look at you!!! Another winged thing :-0!! I'm so proud. I've been enjoying Helicopter land lately and I have finished a Revell 1/48 HH-53C, a Revell UH-34D and working on a Mil-24D Hind! Arno and I are almost ready to start our Skype Hawker Hunter builds. I recieved a beautiful resin cockpit for it and a friend is making me Canadian 1960 emblems and numbers for it even if they never flew them, lol!!

Hope all is well with you and I love your new build! Hope I don't get in trouble posting a picture for you to see?
