scvrobeson Posted July 22, 2013 Share Posted July 22, 2013 (edited) Hey everyone. After finishing the B-25, I couldn't just sit around not doing anything. So I decided to get started on my new Hawker Tempest from PCM. As of now it will be OOB, but I might end up adding the Fisher landing gear legs and wheels from the Sea Fury, since they are identical to the Tempest units. So far it looks like a nicely molded kit, and should go together about as well as their other kits, so fine with a bit of work. Here are the first photos of the cockpit. I painted the cockpit according to references and the same way the Typhoon was painted. So that means that from the sidewalls up it was painted black. All of the painting so far has been done with Tamiya acrylics, and the wash was just black oil paint to highlight the shadows. I'm thinking of doing either the boxart scheme or the version with the lightning bolt on the nose. Both look pretty cool, although there is nothing in my collection with invasion stripes.... Hope everyone enjoys this. Matt Edited August 26, 2013 by scvrobeson Derek B and Daywalker 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
