Thread: Hawker Hurricane mk IId - JV-Z

Not a huge update, but I'm away on hols for a week on some south Devonshire slopes, so the build will sit stationary for a little while.

Exhaust painted up, ready for fitment :


Canopy glued on, HVAC tape ready for framing. Now she's ready for the top coat all over.

If you send me one of the boards, I can measure up, design and print some cases for them. Looks great! yes

A couple of "bench flying" shots at lunchtime, just before I took the gun pods in to the shed for a coat of primer.

Hi Ade,

I used two, running span-wise. I found a great supply of large magnets on Amazon, but they are quite heavy unfortunately. With 12 magnets now on-board, it's added a decent amount to the weight.

Lots of progress this past 2 weeks - wing and fuselage fully glassed and in primer, now it's time to fit her out and do some detailing.

Aerial masts and nose 'umps added:


Aileron servos mounted:


Some more printed parts - this time the exhaust stacks to my own design:


Gun pods and radiator magnetised mounts final gluing up:


Next up - cockpit fit out, some more detailing, then final paint. I might just make it!

Have never had a handling charge or VAT stopped for decals from Callie, even on orders over £80

hmm, I was quite taken with the Gaffer's bolt-and-lead idea, but better to have less dead weight on board. All my glassing is done now, so ideal time to have a look at extended that box yes

Very neat solution Phil, and super fine carving there too.

Nice. I like the yellow flash on the fin - very visible.

Get some more pictures up!

Chosen a scheme yet?

Thread: Is epoxy the same as mustard?
06/08/2018 15:10:04

I'm the same (with mustard and epoxy) - but I try to go around all the builds or outstanding repairs, and use the remaining epoxy somewhere on something. This is where having 2 or 3 builds on at once may seem like madness, but is less wasteful in the glue department!

Mick Reeves Models for the instrument panel. Not too expensive, and lovely quality.

I don't think the weight is anything to worry about chaps. I'm sure Phil will be along later to clear things up, but I believe the 2.5lb AUW was a red herring. I mean, look at the size of the aircraft. You'd struggle to get a JP in at that weight.

Great progress btw Chris yes
