Italeri Hawk MK100 1/72 WIP.

Hello all,

Here is a build of an Italeri Hawk 100 that I picked up for about £4 in the local hobby shop that I finally got around to building.
I find building the cockpit and painting the inside of the cockpit the most off putting bit of a plane build, once I have got this bit out of the way its no problems, just need that kick up the arse.

I have tried dry brushing panels and tried just spots of paint and this is the method I went for on this one.

The seat belts are a bit of a let down , but that was more to do with beer again than anything else to be fair.

I do like the red trigger button on the control column, not sure if it correct or if I have been watching too much "Top gun".

Here it is in position to give a better idea of how it fits in.
I have jumped a bit in the build, I will tell you about the nose wait tomorrow.
I will fill you in on how it went tomorrow!

Cheers for looking,   Rich.

Revell Warrior MCV 1/72

Hello all,

This is the Revell offering of the Warrior MCV without the add on armour. If  you are lucky enough to get one get it, if not you will have to wait till the Trumpeter kit turns up. I have had this kit at a near completion for I reckon two years nearly and finally got around to weathering and basing it.
I don't normally like track and link builds but this one was not to bad to work on.



The figure is from CMSC or Kingfisher as they are now known, and the Ariel's are from copper wire but I will use paint brush bristles next time.

The AFV was painted in Humbrol 86 light olive for ages, but it didn't look right in plain olive green so out came the black and it was worth the hassle.


The mud look was a combination of Tamiya mud stick, Tamiya weathering powder and airbrushing.
The stowage can from the spares box.

The base has had an outing before, but space is a t a premium so I will have to make do.

The colour is a good choice in my eyes so I bought a couple of pots because I know for a fact they will stop making it.
Not a bad build in the end, took a while to do mind you but that was my fault, my aim is to build my only add on armour in the UN colours of the Balkans mission.
