1/32nd Revell-Monogram Hawker Hunter
June 12, 2015 in Aviation
Like George (below), I haven’t been posting of late, either. Not because I couldn’t, but because I didn’t have anything TO post. 🙁
Recently, I got a hold of a kit I’ve never built (in any scale). The Hawker Hunter.
This 32nd offering was a pretty decent kit, albeit my modeling skills are the same as ever – mediocre. There is a ton of armament and markings from which to choose (British and/or Swiss), but I chose the ‘simple’ version – fuel tanks only.
Something else I don’t usually (if ever) do, and that’s brush paint camouflage, but I thought I’d try it…..probably won’t attempt it again – I don’t like the way it turned out (spray paint would’ve looked better….this is too thick). A little #8 birdshot in the [rather] small nose piece held in with some modeling clay, and it’ll sit on the gear just fine.
All in all, a fair representation of a Hunter…..an aircraft I didn’t have previously.
