Just finished I am rather glad that I…

Just finished!
I am rather glad that I could belly-land this stricken project… Problems did not only arouse around the work with the Resin parts, more challenging was the Italeri-kit itself. Uff, done!
I have adapted the diameter of the cowling front to make the prop fit, scratched the Venturi beneath the cockpit and installed a “pole”-style antenna mast made of brass tube. Iliads decals are a dream to work with.

9 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. Read somewhere that one of the perks of this kit was the diameter of the cowl, looking at your model no one would know, itโ€™s a fantastic model Roland

  2. Roland, that Hurricane turn out rather well. For some reason when I make an attempt at modeling the Hurri I end up putting it aside … the more you know about the subject the more questions to ask about it.

    Great painting, prop , early style exhaust, antenna and the lack of the bottom skeg or fin. Now add the modified tail …Two thumbs up.

  3. What a great outcome! This kit is a lot of hard work, indeed.

  4. REALLY well done, Roland! I like it all!

  5. Many thanks to all of you – this motivates to put a rather elaborate model on the worktable again soon! Pedro, actually the diameter of the hood is out of proportion – I had to trick a little and hollow out the hood end in front. But by chance there was even an urgently needed improvement of the appearance ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. A very nice, clean build! Well done.

  7. Really nice! What scale?

  8. Thank you Greg and Tom! Here Italeris kit in 1:48 was used as starting point.
