HI Say that's looking relly nice and looks like it's going together relly sweet.
It really is a contrast with the old Airfix kit, which builds up nice but can be an absolute $&*@(#$, especially the forward fuselage. Bit more detail in the Airfix engine area, as well.
I can see where this kit would be really fun to super-detail, but I didn't feel like doing that this time around.

I'm going with the 2d scheme:
Not sure if I'll do the RIAF or some other RAF squadron, but it will be a green/grey SEAC aircraft.
My Hurri Mk I is already in the dark green/earth scheme, so I want to do a bit of contrast.

this actually seams to be a very good kit for super detailling as you mentionned.
I also have to say your build is impressive as it stands and it looks great.
Please send us some more pics!

Next, I painted the decal light blue and put the roundel masks on, as well as the red elephant squadron markers.
Did the underside and upper surfaces, which had to be masked as well as these are your standard RAF color demarcations and are not blended very much at all.
Pictures to follow soon...

Thanks. Still has a ways to go, to achieve that lived-in, serving in Burma look, but I'm happy with the paint job so far.
Hard to see in the picture, but there are also Montex masks all over the place for the markings. I had good success with them on a Trump P-47; these markings are a lot less complicated.

I will have pictures soon, but essentially the main assembly, including wheels, flaps, propeller, etc have been completed and added.
Painting is done and Montex masks have worked their magic.
I'm in the process of weathering/etc. and still have some details to complete, the gunsight, windscreen, canopy and landing lights, as well as the bits that always break off if I put them on too early (pitot tube).
