1/32 Scale SAAF Hawker Hartebees
Its been a while since I last posted one of my builds on the site, work and everyday life has been preventing me getting much build time, however, I managed to complete the Silver Wings Hawker Demon, and converted it into a 40 Squadron Hartebees of the South African Airforce. This is a machine that fought in East Africa against the Italians, from Kenya to Somalia from early 1940.
What a great kit from Silver Wings, I loved the build.
I Scratch built the Lewis Machine gun, and did all the turnbuckles from brass tube.
This is the first time I have done serious rigging on a Bi plane. I loved it.
I Hope you enjoy the pictures.
