Great work as always. Interesting how different the colors come out because of the different lighting on your workspace.

Happy to hear you are my companion by age... I was starting to think to be one of the big veterans here...

Looking at your Hurricane my memory recalls the great 1:24 Airfix model, one of the most beautiful plastic models I had in my hands...

Regarding the aft section and the shading for the fabric over metal: is that pre-printed onto the paper or did you do something to mimic it?


This is a gorgeous build, regardless.

Working the nose

Thank you very much gents! Huxley75, the shade that you have noticed is part of the print. From a short distance it really looks like real. Tonino, yeah, the 1:24 Airfix Hurricane is a memorable model. I remember those 1:72 scale Airfix models in small plastic bags, built many of them as a kid, in fact they were the start of a life-long addiction. Isaac, better get yourself another copy !

Back to the paper Hurricane. Next are the engine exhausts and to finalize the nose section, a few "bubbles" (or pimples?) on either side and then the spinner. I fitted a brass tube with 2mm OD / 1mm ID in the nose and to align the tube properly already built the spinner with a 1mm dia brass rod. Brass is soft so can be sanded easily to obtain a slightly thinner pin, resulting in a very smooth running prop assembly. The blades will come later.

It was just after Christmas when I constructed the red spinner. What can I say - I had this "Rudolph the red nosed Reindeer" tune on my mind all the time when looking at the model.... Look at Ricleite's Me109, why so many Rudolphs popping up ???

Cheers,
Erik
