Airfix Typhoon part 3 - A storm of activity

Well hardly.  The Typhoon has received several minutes of attention and is really beginning to look the part.  The spinner should be black, but I decided that was a bit dull and went for red.  Ooh, I’m such a rebel.

The next step will be to cobble together a set of markings using most of the set from the kit and a few bits from the decal box: http://megablitzandmore.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/decal-box.html

Calm down Sir, you're making a scene.

Sorry - a momentary giddy lapse. Put it down to having been outside without being severely rained upon - for the first time in many days....

Nice work Tim. Is that a tan colour you're using there? Just curious - why?

Cheers,

Nick

A red spinner is forgivable. Painting e whole aircraft in a Hello Kitty color scheme would be out and out anarchic.

Rock steady progress Tim. This is going to turn out a gem I think.

I say, easy on old chap! :)

Looking good, like the red nose.

Buff and Tan are the camo colours for flights over Egypt....

Its getting there. I think this is the first time I've even painted anything like an accurate RAF camo pattern on a 1/72 scale model!

I'm so sorry - it won't happen again. Probably.

Well it was a Saturday night and the bottle was open ..... Oh, you mean the Typhoon.

Excellent work... very realistic too... have you seen the camo on the Kittyhawk they've just discovered in the Egyptian desert 70 years after it went missing...
