Ode to a little black and white dog…….

May 27, 2013 · in Aviation · · 14 · 1.2K

This is my latest build. The old , 1:32, Hawker Mk.1b.
Used the Techmod decals (the Revell ones were cr*p) and the vac-form Squadron bubbletop canopy. The aluminium Mark III rails and their SAP/HE 60 lbs rockets are scratchbuild, made of Evergreen rods, strips, electric wire and 1:48 scale G4M1 Betty bombs.
Yep, I know there are a few mistakes...
The markings are fictional, tail-code and the "pin-up" dog is hand painted as an ode to my dog which passed away in january.
Hope you like it...

Best regards;

  4. Ulrich, diesels Taifun schaut perfekt aus! Is my German correct? It looks perfect!

  5. Excuse me, spell check gave me diesels instead of dieses!

  6. Ulrich... You did Jasper proud. I really like the weathering. Cool model all around.

  7. I love old kits done as well as this, fantastic!

  8. Well done!, building the older Revell's 32nd kits were fun while growing, I think I built the BF-110 if I remember right. Sehr Gut! Nice touch and tribute to Jaspar.

  9. To all of you thanks for the compliments!

  10. Funny you should post this kit as I have been considering this kit for my next project. I have an aftermarket cockpit, propeller, and exhaust but I cannot seem to get a hold of a bubble top canopy, so I guess I have to build a car door version. Anyway, excellent work on a not so easy to build kit.

  11. stunning piece of work...knocked it out of the ball park
