Finland Air Force . Hawker Hurricane Mk.I . Tamiya . 1/48

January 22, 2021 · in Aviation · · 4 · 2.2K

Hello Everyone,

The Tamiya Hawker Mk.I is a Superb kit, although its an Italeri rebox.

The kit is a simple straight forward build and its a New tooling for the Hurricane in scale. The detail is great out of the box for this scale and the panel lines are not overdone. The overall fit is great too. Decals provided are great with lots of options, a bit thick IMHO.

I really liked the Finnish AF colors.

The kit is built OOB and no mods are done. The paints used are locally available Acrylics and are airbrushed.

For the chipping I used a sponge and for the Weathering I used a Dark Brown watercolor wash alongwith Oil Pastel Powder for the staining.

Overall a Enjoyable build.

Hope you like the Pictures and the Wip Video.
