Day Three Typhoon Build- Getting Closer....

G'day everyone,
another evening's work to post.
Did some masking, painting and chopping tonight.
I went with Nick's suggestion of chopping off the propellors for that sleek wargames friendly look, and changed the nose colour from beige green to a more striking yellow.
Quite happy with how the Invasion Stripes came out- part masking & part hand painted.
Painted back over all the surfaces to get a better coverage & mixed up a darker grey for the top surfaces.
Thought about masking up cockpit canopy to paint on framework, but in the end managed a reasonable result with Windsor & Newton 000 Series 7 & Bronze Green paint.

Here's the pictures:

Stay Tuned....and have fun my fellow builders.

  1. Far out! You have been quick! Great work, you're right, the stripes have come up a treat. (And the spinner looks da bomb!)

    Model on my friend!

    1. Just been doing a bit every evening since 1st May.
      Re- the props, yeah I thought Nick's idea had merit and I have seen some pretty cool pictures of them without props in a strictly wargames setting.

  3. Wow, turning out nice for a hand painted plane, I have a dilemma, I own an airbrush, but everyone else seems to be hand painting their planes, so I'm unsure as to how to paint my model, normally I would airbrush it, but I would like to keep in theme with everyone else.

    1. I wouldn't worry about the handpainted aspect Dan, we are all just using whatever we have to hand. It would be just as nice IMO to see the same model done with an airbrush.

  4. HI Dan,

    I have an airbrush and am thinking about using mine for this little event. Hand paint if you wish but its hanging in your display area so why not airbrush it instead :)

    Looking forward to seeing the end result!

    Slainte,

    Andy

    1. I guess mines not strictly for display but for wargaming purposes, so not too worried about superfine finish. :)
