Hawker Typhoon : FINISHED

Recommended Posts

Well guys here is the scoop. l been working on this puppy at in the mornings when l first get up and at night when nothing is on the TV. Now awhile a go when l had to move out of my apartment someone who l trusted stole my digital camera and have not been able to replace it since. So as an experiment l am using the webcam l use when l talk to the girlfriend ( amazing l haven't fried this thing lol) Anyways l took some shots of my Typhoon l been working on just to show you guys what l been doing. The quality is not what l like it to be and maybe with future shot l can improve it but l doubt it. So l apologize for the quality of the pics in advance.

 

Most of the pics are of the scratch build cockpit l been working on with a resin seat and instructment panel. First is just the cockpit frame work as it is now

The seat

 

l had some styrene flooring left over from a build l did for someone and it was perfect for the back of the seat

Hi Hacker;

 

It looks really good aside from the fact it is like viewing it through a glass of water! :rolleyes: seriously though mate, the Tubular framing looks really well done, and it is a very nice job thus far. you should be very pleased with it.

 

Cheers mate,

 

Jay

two weeks worth of defining and redefining the thing. At one point l was 9 scale inches too short in one plane and 3 too large in another and had to revamp it so everything looks and sits right. Here is it is in the fuselage in a test fit. Can you see where l am going with this??

Hi Dave,

 

Considering that this is a Revell kit, you have already worked some form of miracle on it...your cockpit frame work compares very well with that of the MDC Typhoon item (however, your structure is necessarily much more extensive). It is always nice to see someone having a good go at this Revell kit. Looks good so far Dave, keep up the very good work, and keep posting those pictures.

 

Cheers

 

Derek
