Kit Manufacturer: Airfix
Kit No. A01003
Type: Curtiss Hawk 81-A-2
Extras used: OOB (Out of the Box)
Paints and colours used: Tamiya XF-13 J.A. Green and XF-72 Brown / JGSDF for camouflage, XF-80 Royal Light Grey for underside. XF-4 Yellow Green for wheel wells. Final clear coat – Humbrol Matt Cote.
Weathering: Flory Dark Dirt wash for exterior, Citadel Nuln Oil for interior washes. Chalk pastel streaking/smoke effects. Citadel Necron Compound dry brushed for metallic wear and tear on interior. AK Interactive enamel Fuel Stains (for fuel stains) and Streaking Grime (for grimy streaks).
Verdict: A nice little new tool kit. The plastic is a bit soft and the panel lines too deep. Not a massively detailed kit but goes together nicely and the decal set is excellent. Build into a nice little model so definitely recommended!
