Pacific Coast Hurricane Mk.1 - Metal Wing


Recommended Posts

After drilling out all the cowl fasteners, and replacing some missing ones, the windshield frame was sprayed interior Grey-Green from outside and allowed to dry, before a couple of thin coats of Halfords grey primer (rattle can made for the automotive market).


Always a nerve wracking moment when you're not sure what it will show up that needs fixing, especially on a fairly crude set of mouldings and a fair amount of modification. Happy with outcome so far - a few tweaks and we can paint her up...








Have fun!

In further adventures of 'How Slowly Can Iain Build A Model': most of the airframe looks surprisingly good under the primer - but I wasn't happy with the already thinned trailing edges of the wing - so it's out with files, sanding sticks and wet and dry paper to rectify/improve:






Blue Skies!
