Supermarine Swift FR.5

I have started this build to contribute to a magazine so I will not post photos for now.

The model is very nice detailed but I'm improving some areas anyway.

Cheers.

Pierre-Christian Baudru The model is almost ready to be painted. Need to apply a coat of Surfacer 1200, complete some panel lines and rivets and start to paint the PRU blue.....

Soeren . Cant wait to see your result.

Pierre-Christian Baudru Thanks Soeren, me too ;) I will try to paint the model this week-end. Cheers.

Benoit Mathier I had a sneak peek this weekend of it.... :-D
Very nice indeed! Looking forward to the paint job

Pierre-Christian Baudru Thanks Benoit ! I'm progressing with the painting. Still need to apply the dark green. Cheers.

Pierre-Christian Baudru Hey guys the model is almost finished. Decals were applied and now I need to airbrush a gloss varnish coat to protect them and apply washes all around the model. I will show something in a few days. Cheers.

Roy McKenzie Looks great. I just got this kit and look forward to starting it.

Ekki Must have missed this one. Great job.

Pierre-Christian Baudru Thanks guys ! Roy, the model is a great one, easy to build and nice detailed. Decals are also great ! Be careful about the color references given by airfix, they are, in my opinion, too dark. So if you use the humbrol paints try to add some 'white' in the mix before painting. Cheers.

Pierre-Christian Baudru If you want more details just ask me or take a look at the Model Aircraft Magazine (Issue - April 2016). Cheers.
