do you know much about this?, I've always wanted a good '23 to build.

Carlos Martin
Not much, I even used Facebook for the firsts time in years to check their page but I only found that it is their next project. I'm buying one, that is for sure.

Heck! I missed all the action!!!....following!!

It's those tricky side-wall tubular cages...I put the starboard one on a fraction too low, and managed to break the triangular one, which meant a very delicate build in the cockpit-coming-together bit.
24. July, 10:47
Carlos Martin
I am, at the same time, looking forward and dreading to put the cockpit together. I have noticed that the bottom triangular bit is levitating on the tubular sides. I tried to mark the lateral sides of the cage in the corners where the triangular piece has to sit. But if it can be broken I am sure I will break it!
I am doing a wash to the cockpit tonight and, things going well, I will start the assembly tomorrow. I will upload some photos of the painted interior before I start breaking things.
24. July, 12:38
Andy Ball
at the stage you're at Carlos, I wish the assembly would have been to have the side cages and the triangle attached around the floor and seat...then put in to the halves of the fuselage...it's very delicate and tricky...anyways....hope you crack it!!
24. July, 14:10
Carlos Martin
I am really pleased with the cockpit and ready to start the assembly. I could have refined more the painting but I am nearly sure that almost nothing is going to be seen.

Andy Ball
Have you checked the instrument panel across the two side walls?, I needed to deepen the grooves on both sides to accommodate it. Yours looks great!
25. July, 13:50
Carlos Martin
Andy, thanks for trailblazing the way. Yes I did have to deepen the groves and sand the instrument panel. I also broke the bottom part of the cage. That is a tricky cockpit assembly. Once I glued the two halves, with a bit of encouragement, the airplane come together nicely.
25. July, 19:54
Andy Ball
Eureka!! You got it together! The rest of the build is now great, (the oil cooler underneath may need a bit of attention- but simple)...so glad you made it!

Carlos Martin
Thanks! I really appreciate your comments.
I didn't like the Airfix model, too basic at places and several parts simply didn't fit. (The fit of the jet engine of the wings is diabolical!) On the positive side, I got to practise filling, sanding and rescribing. I know I overdid it but I was getting better towards the end. Next time!

Wow, that is the best fit in any model I have ever made.

I loved making mine! There are no vices to this molding at all!

Cuajete
Well done so far. Te sigo! ;)
21. June, 19:11
Carlos Martin
Thanks! I loved the model and I had a lot of fun. It it without doubt my best model but there is a lot of room for improvement: a few decals went slightly out of place, my rescribbing is still a bit messy and the antenna is too thick. Ah, the model needs also more weathering. Next time better.
27. June, 09:41
Cuajete
True, antenna is too thick, but painting job is very nice. Enhorabuena! ;)

hey Carlos, try Ushi's rigging, it's quite forgiving and great 'to scale' too.
2. July, 13:42
Łukasz Gliński
Forgiving unless you go for the thinnest one ;) Really nice one btw, apart from the rigging. Jealous about the mottling :)

Interior done. Mixed feelings about the model: Lacks fine detail but builds nicely, I would have prefered a more complex model with more details. I added the Eduard set and, for the first time, a few scratch details that I am really proud of.

very good interior
31. May, 20:08
Carlos Martin
Completed. Simple and easy to put together model. I am happy with the interior but I made a big mesh with the panel line wash and the result is quite gruby. I always make a mesh with my homebrew oil wash, I will try enamels next time, advise welcomed.
13. June, 19:01
Cuajete
Very nice. Congrats!
14. June, 17:57
Łukasz Gliński
Well, I fully agree the washing is not the easiest thing and sometimes it turns out less consistent than we would expect. Still your SeaHawk looks nice, next build will for sure be washed a bit better and so on and so forth ;)
