It took several days to get this far – opening the box!
The kit parts cleaned up and washed with assembly under way.
The 1/32 Gatling represents one of the lesser-known Typhoon weapon fits...
Despite this kit’s considerable age (it was originally released in 1959!) it went together easily enough. Some flash needed removing from the parts, especially around the engine air intake. I used some filler on the fuselage join and the wing roots.
As regards a colour scheme, I decided to avoid invasion stripes and opted for something rather unusual. More coming soon, but the post title contains a clue….
