This kit was brought as a replacement for the kit I was building for the club's December competition, Airfix kit below £10 in 1/72nd and 1/76th scales. My original kit was a Curtis Helldiver, but the tooling dates back to the late 1960's and part of the glazing was missing. So a replacement was needed and I brought this last weekend at Letchworth.
As I wanted to get a head start on this project, the decision was made to put the other builds on hold and crack ahead on this one. All of the fuselage is now built and hopefully all gaps filled, so it is now at the stage to start priming. Everything will get a coat of white primer, then the canopy sections, undercarriage and gear doors a coat of the grey. Once dry and some final masking, a couple of coats of matt black followed by Xtracrylix XA1012 Night Black.
So after this blog is posted, out comes the primer. So here's a couple of photos for you.
