Built one of these a couple years ago, and hated it. My fondness for the old PC games guarantees I'll give it another shot some day, maybe even the 1/48 version if I can find it. Incidentally my impression from the family tree on the kit's page is that all the available 1/72 Comanches are simply reboxings of the same Italeri tooling. Is the kit page inaccurate?

Unless you go for the older Revell version, which is even worse (built it!) 😄

Well done. Congrats!

Oh wow. I didn't realise the older Revell Comanche existed. It's horrifying. 😄

It started off ok but then every time I touched it I marked it or had to redo something. Just retouching the optical sight thing on the nose and then I'm done.

Tuned into your project today to look through the pics again. As I suspected the fuselage decals settled really well into the corrugated channels along the sides. Looks great. I think mine was just a matter of decal age and thickness; they look ok, but just ok and nothing like the nice conformity you have you your hurricane.
31. July, 21:04
Gary Kitchen
Thanks Rui. I'll have to go back and check what brand they were. I don't know much about decals but I use Tamiya Decal softner. Might be a setting solution too. I've slowed a bit as i ran our local junior football tournament last weekend and am camping this weekend. So no time at the bench I'm afraid. 👍

Have to say upon looking in the box, this is excellent separately packed pilots and crew member, seperately boxed clear parts, PE and markings for six birds. It seems sad that Kitty Hawk is gone!

I'm also building a Hurricane right now in the same scale. It's a IIc in Portuguese service but things look similar in the details as yours so I'm following along.
10. July, 18:57
Robert Podkoński
Following too!
10. July, 19:15
Gary Kitchen
Thanks all for your interest. Rui I'm following yours. When I saw the detail I thought they may be the same tool, but his one is an old Hasegawa according to the timeline where as yours is a separate tool, but they're remarkably similar styles.
10. July, 19:40
Mark

10. July, 19:45
Rui Da Silva
Gary… I'm sure the Hasegawa tool has a open canopy option that can actually be posed open. I just found out I a test fit the the two part canopy in the Academy kit isn't really designed to be open. ☹️
I also discovered the the effort I put into the instrument panel was a waste because it's buried so deep in the fuselage that it will never be seen.
10. July, 20:07
Gary Kitchen
But you know it's in there 😉
The Hobby2000 kit has a single piece canopy so not open. But I'm going to use the Part rear canopy with some acetate and try and cut the front section away from the single piece.

Good start Gary, looking forward to your progress. 🙂

Going a bit off piste with this one Guy. Zumbach's brief mount Hawk 75A-2 No107 was captured and sold on to Finland becoming CU-556 so I'm doing half and half. Photos to follow.
24. January, 21:25
Guy Rump
Really interesting combination of liveries Gary, strangely it seems to work, almost as if the time is when the Finns had taken the aircraft and had only half painted it so far...🙂
2. March, 21:32
Gary Kitchen
Yes. I'm much more satisfied with the Finnish side as I really can't seem to crack these French Color combos. Not sure if I'll do one like this again though.

Very nice work on this machine, love the two different shemes you did, very clever work

Mona
this being a Curtiss ..I not certain and I'm curious if it was manufactured in Buffalo NY ?
7. July, 23:15
Gary Kitchen
Hello @Mona I can't say definitively but it does look like all the french Hawks were Buffalo produced and shipped to France as kits to be assembled at Bourges.

Thanks Guy. I'm glad Julien called out my error before I'd gone any further though.
Thanks Andy, James, Juergen- I've managed to cover the fuselage with a slightly larger RAF decal- it has softened well enough to see the inspection hatch still and so am happy with that. I'm going to try and lift the upper and lower wing decals this weekend. Fingers crossed. 👍

Back on track having rectified my decal error. Still need to put the exposed Jumo back in place and then on to washes and weathering.
