I finally went with the Indian navy option if nothing else more than I just didn't have any other markings available that looked good.

Totally believable but highly fictional writeup to follow, I need to go to work!

After all that you went with Indian Navy, I was really looking forward to a Swiss Navy version.

Other than that, came out looking great.  I need to get back to my Henneway.

Sharp as a tack, Alvis! Odd how right those Indian markings look.

I like it!

Those longish wings make it look like it should have some cameras built into it for recce work.

Sexy beast (the model, that is).  What was the base kit?

Everything looks better with the addition of British Roundels!

Nice work.  The wings threw me off since they seem to belong there.  From certain angles it almost looks like a tiny Tu-16.

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

The base kit is the Trumpeter Hawker Seahawk, while the wings come from a Lindberg Grumman Tiger F11F. The wings needed to be "deepened" to match the thickness of the Seahawk wings, which was done by inserting a shim into the wing after glueing the leading and tailing edges. I sanded off all the raised erroneous rivets from the Lindberg parts, and scribe in some panel lines. The colours are Tamiya Royal Light Grey and a mix of an IJN grey and some blue to make the top colour.


Now of course I've got the outer wings from the Seahawk and a wingless Tiger. No, they don't work...the wings are far too short to use on the Tiger, which is actually slated for another project anyhow. The Seahawk wings will make a nice conversion for a land based plane into a carrier based one though...I'm thinking possibly Mustang. Maybe FW-190...I'll see what they fit eventually.
