Sea Hawk - part 4

It's complete at last!  Behold the mighty Sea Hawk resplendent in it's rather striking yellow & black Suez campaign stripes.

See - it even flies!

dh Venom

This has just clawed its way out of the Partizan ‘plane purchase pile. Of a similar era to the Canberra and Sea Hawk seen here recently I think this is a Venom rather than the earlier Vampire. I’m not sure of the kit manufacturer, though for reasons unknown I want to say Frog. I might add to the markings later as looks a bit bare. Any thoughts?

Sea Hawk - part 3

With the basic paintwork complete it's on now to the yellow and black Suez invasion stripes.  What could go wrong?
Having masked the outer border it was on with the yellow paint.  Many many coats thereof.
Trust me, it didn't look this good in the flesh.
With the yellow dry more masking was applied to facilitate the black stripes.  This didn't go entirely as planned and a fair bit of touching up was required.

Coming next - the 'Hawk in flight!

Canberra in camo

This large lump of plastic has finally clawed it's way out of the Partizan 'plane purchase pile.  I've never previously owned a Canberra in anything other than 1/300 scale but a Canberra is a thing of beauty in any scale.Which is lucky as I have another one...
No idea what make the kit is - though I remember Frog made such a thing.  It does look a bit tatty but that rather adds to it's charm in my eyes.
