Revell Hurricane IIb
Revell Hurricane IIb
Here's my straight-out-of-the-box build-up of one of Revell (Germany)'s new series of 1/72 Hawker Hurricane IIs. Paints are Polly Scale British Dark Green, Ocean Gray, Sea Gray Medium on the underside. Gloss and sealer are Future floor wax. Canopy framing is strips of clear decal painted interior green and then Dark Green. VERY crisp. All brushed by hand- several coats in every case. The spinner LOOKS white in this photo but it is Sky, as is the decal ring around the tail. Good color match. Yellow, black, sky, flat aluminum, interior Gray Green are all Polly Scale too. Because of Future on the clear parts, all assembly is with Testor's NonToxic (blue label) liquid cement, including the clear parts. This is a great family of kits. You can get a: Hurricane IIb - with the wing built for up to 12 .303 rifle caliber machine guns, and stressed for two underwings bombs or underwing fuel tanks. Hurricane IIc - with the wing built for 4 20mm cannons, and stressed for the underwing bombs or fuel tanks Hurricane IIc Tropical - Same as above but with a Volkes filter box under the nose to prevent dust getting into the engine Sea Hurricane IIc - Same as a IIc but add a second aft fuselage underside, with carrier arresting gear hook! Upsides: More accurate than the Matchbox Hurricane Mk IIc kit, more detail bits than the Heller Mk IIc kit, cheaper (a bit) than the Hasegawa 1/72 Mk IIc kit. Revell's kit is the only 1/72 "mk IIb" with panel lines and so forth for the outboard pair of guns on each wing- Airfix claim their "Mk 1/Mk 2" kit can be a IIb but its not on the same page as Revell for detail or accuracy, or Heller or Academy, for accuracy. Nice kit, builds easily. Separate caopy and windscreen. Canopy and cockpit seem more like the correct width than the Hasegawa kit. Downsides: Everyone went to lunch and the janitor designed or tooled the prop. Its not a replica of any full size prop every mounted on a Hurricane that I've ever seen a photo of. Only rivet counters notice this, but if that kind of thing bothers you... Separate canopy and windscreen nice but you can't mount the canopy anywhere but 'closed' Shape of radiator intake is questionable- its a D on its face on this kit, more of an oval on Hasegawa, and my take on photos I've seen is that Hasegawa got it more-correctly. You have to sand and check to get the wing outer panel dihedral right. The kit basicly has a flat upper wing surface and that's not QUITE right. My example came out with the main gear raked back too sharply, and I'm not sure if that was my mistake or how the kit is built. IMG_0921
Atlas 4
Atlas 4
Inside the old Universal Atlas Cement plant in Greenport, N.Y., just outside Hudson. I can't figure out what this room was. I might have missed it with all the peeled paint and broken glass on the floor, but I didn't see any other plumbing connections here. There were clear glass windows on all sides, so It seems unlikely to have been a bathroom. But what else would you do with that piddly little sink? (Besides photograph it, I mean.) For more images of this cement plant and a little background on how it came to be abandoned, and stay abandoned, see the "Cemented" set in my photostream.
