    1/48 Hasegawa Hawker Typhoon

    Hello,

    so after finishing my Hasegawa Ju87G 1/32 model:



    I started working on my Hawker Typhoon 1/48 model, first thing that comes to mind.... some parts are really really small!

    anyhow...here are the first shots of the cockpit:

    Any chance of another photo of the Stuka in better light Hunter? It looks good but it's too dark at least on my monitor.

    1/48 will seem small after 1/32. Someone suggested that I get some off the shelf reading glasses to help see the smaller parts.

    So got to work on my typhoon model again, purchased a handrill so I could finally start on the wings drilling the holes for the rockets rails.

    also started to work on the Landing gear.


    Getting Started:


    Holes drilled, primed and assembled all the parts to put it all together.


    A Nice fit.


    Just for show.


    Tail wings attached.
    (a bit blurred photo)


    The Landing gear boxes, and Radiator flap installed.


    To be continued.

    Make balsa ones because they fly if you put radio controls in them but make sure you put a great big gun in the front of them to shoot down the jealous person that wants to crash into you.
