Peter's Hawk H75 A-7

The second year of WW2 is primarily remembered for the Battle of Britain, but there was far more besides, both from a military and a civilian perspective. So, eighty years hence, this Group Build is open to anything that was around in 1940, from fighter aircraft to armoured cars, from battleships to buses.
Runs from 8 February to 31 December 2020.

Slowly moving on.
Gloss coated and some further tidying up.
Dutch National insignia applied to fuselage sides and under wings (the above wings ones were painted out at the outbreak of hostilities).
Also masked and painted the Black wing walkways (a little more tidying up to be done there too).

This is stunning! I never thought I'd see a model of a Netherlands East Indies Cyclone Hawk, especially not in 1/144, and so well done.

Shucks, thanks guys! :oops:
Here are the components of the undercarriage legs and covers. The Hawks did not have the cover(s) over the actual wheels (to avoid mud build up in the tropical environment I imagine). I managed (eventually) to find some plastic tube of almost appropriate diameter that with some suitable cuts should do.

Hmmm, more touching up required with the Black paint I see :roll:
