I don't do much in the way of weathering, I prefer a cleaner finish to my aeroplanes but I will apply some very light weathering.\ said:looks good so far, looking forward to the weathering
Hi Neil. Yes, the missing sections in the wing leading edges are for the landing lights. I will add them last after the final matt varnish is finished. The mould in the Revell lights has a mould-release blob inside, which to me looks much like a bulb, so I will add a drop of silver to the back of the light and set it in place with PVA. I've seen some very nice methods for making landing lights look realistic, from making bulbs from blobs of clear sprue or PVA, to complete homemade replacement jobs including freshly made lenses. In 1/72 I can't be bothered with such detail, the kit lights look sufficient to me.\ said:Are the missing bits in the leading edge of the wings lights? I assume so as they are also on my airfix one. How do you intend to paint them? Just curious, are you going to paint them silver inside or do something else?
Cheers Trey. The Revell decals were great, no hassles at all and no silvering apparent. The Xtradecal decals for the white version were also top class.\ said:Decals look like they laid down nicely,looking sharp Joe!
Hey Aaron, yep they were fitted with rockets on occasion. Here's a picture (unfortunate situation after being hit by Sea Hurricane NF722 on HMS Ravager) of the original aircraft. You can see the under wing pad where the rocket fittings go:\ said:These took rockets as added armorment right?
