Some progress finally - been somewhat distracted of late.

 

The cockpit's installed, as are the Heritage intakes and jet pipe.  The locating points needed some adjustment, but given that they are a simple drop-in replacement for the kit parts.  The kit parts for the turbine faces are fitted, and apart from nose-weight and some final details I think I can close her up soon.

No more progress today - just about to turn the TV on to watch the Trooping of the Colour for HM the Queen's Birthday.

Nice work Mike. Do you plan to join the two intake ducts together when you close the fuselage? Or will it not show off you don't?

Thanks Gents.  Carl, yes they join nicely when the fuselage is closed.  I'm really impressed with how well the resin fits, some adjustment notwithstanding. 

 

Closed the fuselage today, pics to follow at some point.

Fuselage halves are together.  SInce this was taken, I've added the rudder and its fairing, the rear fuselage panel, and the panel on the spine; and made a start on cleaning up the seams.

Carl, the intakes fit together beautifully.

They certainly do fit together very well Mike! Thanks for posting the images and great to see all the progress you're making.

Looking very nice indeed

 

I must invest in those intakes myself....for my next hawk.....they really look much better then the kit parts.....I know no aftermarket for my current build but will consider for my future one....

 

Hope to see some more progress on your build....love the scheme that you got choosen

 

Any ideas as to what you will be doing for the cockpit devided on the canopy ?.

Hi folks, thank you for all the kind comments and interest, and especially to Brian ^^^ for a timely reminder.

 

Alas, this one has languished a bit: I've been doing a Stearman for a mag, taking time out for my one annual fortnight of sport (parked in front of the TV for the Wimbledon Championships) and dealing with real life things such as some 1:1 painting in the house and some gardening.

 

However, Wimbledon is over (Well done Andy Murray, and to Henri Kontinen and Heather Watson), and the Stearman is nearly done, so after catching up on the chores I hope to make a bit of headway on the Hawk.  I've not really thought about the canopy yet, but reproducing the MDC wil probably give me cause to ponder.  Any suggestions welcome.

 

Watch this space ...

Finally some slow progress!  The intake fit is not quite perfect after all: there is a distinct step between the rear of the intake and the underside of the wing root, which meant building up the profile.  So I started with some plastic card scraps, then lots of filler-sand-repeat.

 

 

 

WP_20160723_16_52_01_Pro_zpsxmqftgey.jpg

 

Almost there.

 

A smidgeon of filler at the wing roots needed.

Just needs a clean-up now, and it's time for that first overall coat of primer.

A little more done - slow but steady.  She's ready for an overall "undercoat" of a very light grey to even things up, and then it's on with the Raspberry Ripple.  The windscreen is fixed, the main canopy is tacked with white glue, it's easier than masking that big open cockpit!

 

WP_20160820_21_22_51_Pro_zps7fqmwiyd.jpg

 

To add a little interest, I thought I'd put a map or some other document on top of the coaming behind the windscreen; then I found the very book in my library.  I scanned it, and reduced the image to 1:32; printed it; cut the image plus an equivalent area out and folded it like a book cover; inserted a piece of white card; voila, one book to 1:32:

You may not be able to tell what it is from that, so here's my pilot's latest read at full size: just a little extra tribute ...

Looking good

consider putting the nav lights on before painting.....as on my example some filler was needed on one side
Would be a pita to get it done after a nice paint job
