  1. That's just superb, and great photos too, thanks for sharing with us Hubert
  2. Many thanks for your comments! Well, the kit itself is a challenge. I think if it wasn't a short run kit, we'd see more of them built. Definitely, it's time for the mainstream molds. Eduard announced one in 1:48. Maybe someone, sometime... Hobby Boss? Trumpeter? Even with all their common mistakes and less than perfect accuracy. But for now I'm trying to make some space in my busy workshop for the French Hawk from Azur/SH kit. Best regards Hubert
  3. Many thanks Kev, sure you can Best, Hubert
  4. Done! Many thanks for all your comments and support, very much appreciated Best regards and Happy New Year for all of you! Hubert
  5. The September 1939 campaign in Poland made it clear to the Dutch that they are completely unprepared for the conditions of modern war. They needed fighters. However, the queue with orders for the fighter aircraft was already long. France, Great Britain did not have much to offer for sale, they were in need themselves and bought them in emergency mode. The United States became the natural direction, where at the last moment Dutch managed to buy 24 Curtiss H-75 in the A7 version, for which the base was the A4, equipped with a powerful and light, yet capricious, Wright Cyclone engine - but also t
  6. Fantastic work, keep it up! That epoxy resin seems to work fine, I'd probably just use the inserts made of the HIPS sheets and never come to this idea. Worth trying. BTW. Seems all our cats like to keep a sleepy eye on us
  7. Some more progress. Almost done. There is a mysterious story associated with today's session. I was about to paint the landing gear covers, those covering the front of the gondolas in the wings. I arranged everything on the desk, glued these covers to sticks with blutac, mixed the paint, turned on the compressor, connected the airbrush, poured the MRP OD 41, as a test sprayed it once or twice onto the paper towel, I reached for the sticks and ... there was only one cover. The other disappeared. Peeled off the stick. The air took i
  8. The propeller. Stencils borrowed from the Trumpeter's P-40B, logos from the TLH32-007 Tomahawk in the Sky decal set.
  9. That's just spectacular! Great work, keep it up.
  10. Added the wheels, and most of the the gear covers, the lights. Time to think about the weathering, probably will use some light earth pigments, also to emphasize the rivets just as they look at the photo in my earlier post, maybe some oils for the belly. The propeller is not turning, if anyone asked ;).
  11. Source: Avions, No 34 Janvier 96, only for discussion This is a photo of this particular Hawk, C-329. Why does it look like that? I have no idea. Maybe Mr P.C. van Breen wanted to have something different and asked the servicemen to over-paint the edge of the walkway in this wavy style? Other Dutch Hawks seem to have a straight line there. It was one of two reasons why I chose this scheme (the white stripe on the fuselage was the second one). Prachtig dank u!
  12. The landing gear legs installed, there was some trouble to have them in correct angles, but I think it's OK now. Some shadows added, some exhaust stains.
  13. Applied some washes, this time I tried the new ones (for me) from Modelers World. Worked very well. The propeller, landing gear - also received some attention, their time is coming. The photos without any enhancements, so the colors close to the reality.
  14. Many thanks for your comment, very much appreciated. That medium green... well, it is just green, indeed. I think that when it is dusted a bit, this color will be toned down. On the other hand, one can see the camouflage quite well at the photos, two colors are clearly visible. But it may also be due to the photographic material, filters... so much that at the photos the lighter colour (medium green) is darker than the dark olive drab ... Will see. Hubert
