Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I

After putting the decals on I had a slight problem with the upper wing roundels in that a raised detail on the wing prevented the decals bedding down and I had to slice them with a scalpel. This left noticeable marks on the decals so after a think I ordered some masking film and whenContinue reading “Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I”

E-75 Tank Destroyer

The Hobbyboss tracks finally arrived the other day so I spent a few hours removing the links from the sprues and cleaning them up before fitting them to the model. This was trickier that normal as the axles are very short on the kit and the Paper Panzer Productions resin wheels are a loose fitContinue reading “E-75 Tank Destroyer”

E-75 ‘Eber’ tank destroyer

Some more progress has been made on the model as I’ve added the kit-supplied etched grenade screens, tools and engine compartment cover. Also to add some interest to the engine deck I cut off the breather pipes that were moulded on and replaced them with styrene rod with the etch bits coming from the VoyagerContinue reading “E-75 ‘Eber’ tank destroyer”

E-75 ‘Eber’ tank destroyer

Some good progress has been made on this so far but rather boringly I have to stop as I’m working this weekend. The wheels are just fitted for show as the tracks will be glue onto them and when set the whole lot will be taken off as sub assemblies.I masked off the engine deckContinue reading “E-75 ‘Eber’ tank destroyer”

E-75 ‘Eber’ tank destroyer

This is a TOTAL ‘what-if’ so if this genre doesn’t appeal to you then look away now…..for the rest of you who are still interested this depicts a tank destroyer with a superstructure bolted toContinue reading “E-75 ‘Eber’ tank destroyer”

Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I

YAY I got the stickers on tonight; I need to sort out a couple of areas where the decals haven’t sat down properly and paint the fin leading edge red, trying to match the decal. Speaking of which I *was* going to actually paint the red segment completely but instead I cut the white stripContinue reading “Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I”

Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I

The masking tape finally came off the model today and although it needs touching up in a couple of places I’m quite pleased with it; I photocopied the painting instructions and adjusted the size (it was 88% I think) to match the models dimensions. Masking tape was laid onto a sheet of styrene and theContinue reading “Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I”
