Ok, that rant over (we have a rantometer at work so I'd better chalk one up when I get back in on Monday) its back to the serious thing (if making little plastic aeroplanes and tanks can be serious). I posted finished pictures of the Hunter last time but some of you eagle eyed guys will have noticed it wasn't quite done! Oops! Here are the finished shots (honest governor). This model will be featured in Model Airplane International magazine in due course.
Actually, while I am talking about MAI, look out for next month's issue (July 2014) as my Monogram B-17 article is due to be published.
Staying with the large scale theme, here is a sneak preview of a model from my new, special, exciting project! The focus of the project will be obvious to many, its weathering, however as you can see, that bit hasn't been started yet so here she is in her base livery! You'll also note that I've done some extensive scratch detailing inside, I was going to button her up but there was some interesting internal weathering effects I could showcase and the kit is rather bare in this regard. I normally don't really enjoy this bit but actually I rather enjoyed this one.
Ok, that's it for now, I'm just off to weep owing to England's lamentable performance in the world cup! Next time I hope I can show you a sneak preview of the finished Hind along with more modelling observations. I best check those forums!
