Tamiya Mk I Swordfish Empty
PostSubject: Tamiya Mk I Swordfish   Tamiya Mk I Swordfish EmptyWed May 22 2013, 16:37

This Tamiya Mk I Swordfish was a consignment build, whose owner specified that it was to have the photo etched braces replaced and that it was to be a Bismarck Raider, so several things where done for this build, apart from drilling all the holes out for the thread placement, but the interior was made to be more realistic, with the canvas dope colour and the interior metal frame and skin painted in there respective colours. The canvas colour is from Humbrol and the interior Grey/Green is Humbrol #78, the remainder of the interior has the Eduard photo etched cockpit set added as a realistic appearence to the kit parts, the photo's show how the interior was painted before joining the fuselage halves and the wing bracing.
