Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I

Time to get this one finished as it’s been hanging around for long enough;

I sprayed the exhaust staining starting with a very thinned Tamiya X-19 Smoke then a thin coat of light grey was sprayed in the middle, after this the model was sprayed all over with matt varnish. The undercarriage door interiors and gear legs were sprayed with Vallejo aluminium and now it will all be left to dry for a couple of days as I’m back in work tonight, hopefully I can get it finished at the weekend.
Looking at the model it’s going to be another ‘4 footer’ in that it will look great from 4ft away but wouldn’t stand up to any close inspection as to me it’s not that good.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
