I finished her tonight, added the final decals to the undercarriage gear and doors, and the missiles before fitting them. That has now given me a weeks grace of completion for the club competition next Wednesday.
Just to give a little light into the club competitions. We have a competition each month based on different themes for each one. The competition runs from the May of each year to the following March with points given for entry and the top three places each month. This is done by the members present at the meeting that night voting for their three favourite models entered that night. April does not have one as it is the clubs AGM and when the trophy to the winner of that year.
This months theme was an Airfix kit in either 1/72nd or 1/76th scales for under £10.00 retail price. I first had a Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, but there was a part missing in the kit. So I then picked up the Hawk to replace it. So a quick run down of this model. It was built straight out of the box, no added detailing, the main paints used were Xtracrylix XA1015 RAF Lt Aircraft Grey and XA1012 Night Black. Other various paints were used on the model too during the construction. I didn't want to have a very glossy finish on the model, I like to have it in a used state and a little dull. It is a nice model to build and went without any problems, but I also have an Airfix 1/48th scale Red Arrows Hawk and an Airframes limited edtion Hawk T1A in my stockpile to build.
So, lets see what happens next Wednesday night and here are some photos of the finished model.
