Kinetic Hawk RAAF, FINISHED!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Here is some more work on the loadout. I was thinking of doing this Hawk with 4 CBLS bomb carriers, a gun pod and 2 sidewinders, so here is the mock up of the 4 CBLS.

I have also finished the outer pylons as well.

I have also wanted to load this model up with the central gun pod, which is another thing that didn't come with the kit. There are already a couple of less than satisfactory resin pods floating around that can be purchased and the Revell Hawk comes with one that is extremely anorexic, so I beefed it up a bit and added quite a bit of filler and plastic card to better represent its shape. I then cast the shape in resin so that I had a nice even surface to scibe on and so that I wasn't scribing through filler.

I then was able to scribe the required lines and also start adding detail. As this is a WIP there is still much more detail to add, and I will be using more Archer rivets which are very prominent on the pod. There are a few mis-scribed lines that I have filled with superglue...

Some more Gun Pod detailing. The hardest part of this has been trying to get pics of the underneath of the pod, and now I have some I have continued. I do plan on recasting this once completed for those interested.

I also painted the wheel wells with Mr Surfacer white, decanted from the spray can and sprayed with the airbrush.

I also painted some other stuff white today, including the Teardrop shaped antenna under the forward fuselage, Rather than try and mask it once in situ, and to avoid trying to place it when I had finished painting, I thought I would make an imprint of it in some masking tape once it was off the sprue and before I glued it in place. Made it alot easier to mask later on.

Looking simply stellar... The Archer Rivets are on must buy and try list, after seeing how realistic they look in your hands.

Keep 'em coming

:popcorn: :popcorn:

I tried the set from MicroMark as well. They have two large sheets of different sizes.
