FINNISH AIR FORCE (Lelv32) Summer 1941 at Immola
ROMANIAN AIR FORCE No.53 Squadron June 1941 at Mamaia / Lieutenant Horia Agarici

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 BOX PACKAGEI decided to make Hawker Hurricane of SWEET 1/144. I liked the Zero fighter which I completed before. I do my best to be finished well.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 BOX PACKAGEIt seems to be able to build the various countries Hurricanes. I planned to build the Finnish Air Force and the Romanian Air Force planes.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 MAKINGThis instruction is very large compared to the kit box. The airplane of the British air force and the Belgium air force can be chosen besides the above.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 MAKINGI look forward to pasting these beautiful Cartograf decals.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 MAKINGIt was surprised at one body entirely to be clear parts. When it is the body of British airplanes, the form of the exhaust pipes is different. And the propeller is two wings type.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 MAKINGI just painted the aircraft interior color. The body of the clear parts looks very dirty, but I suppose it is probably all right.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 PAINTINGDepending on the manufacturer, the kneaded eraser makes the clear parts whitening if you leave stuck with it. I polished the canopy with a compound in a hurry later.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 PAINTINGThe hurricanes of this time are the Finnish Air Force and Romanian Air Force. There were a lot of parts of yellow paint, so first I blew white thinly. Especially the clear body is hard to paint as it is.
I usually have handled only a dark color in the AFV building, the weak colors of concealment power, such as yellow, the airbrush blowing condition setting is difficult. It is not good too much-blowing paint to a 1/144 small scale when it’s thin, the color doesn’t paint bright.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 PAINTINGI painted yellow. The masking seems to become toilsome from now on. Masking is not favorite work very much.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 PAINTINGBoth of 2 planes are different in color of the camouflage entirely, so even if it’s made together, the working process doesn’t decrease. The camouflage pattern has been just covered by a masking sol.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 PAINTINGA yellow band of stick out part will be covered touch-up later. I progressed to paint little by little.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 PAINTINGBack it is also unusual paint. The yellow width of 2 planes main wings is different and the yellow of a body is also different in width.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 PAINTINGWhen I mixed the color of the olive-green for the Finnish air force, it has become the olive-drab. I think it should be more greenish is right for the Finland Air Force Hurricane.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKFinnish Air Force ordered 12 hurricanes and received 10 planes in March 1940 according to the SWEET leaflet. Remaining 2 planes were damaged during their transportation. The hurricane wasn’t in time for the Winter War (Talvisota) and wasn’t used.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKThe Hurricane was thrown into the battle after July 1941 as the Axis side in the Operation Barbarossa.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKOnce I filled a gap between the main wing and the body on the clear parts with the putty, it’s difficult to see the surface condition and finish up was rough on the right side. Regrettably, I worked carefully with painting gray for checking. As a result, I felt the gap was not standing out in the camouflage painting.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKI felt it be more difficult than the Zero fighter which I made it last time. Especially one aircraft of all- clear parts were very hard for me.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKA green part looked like olive-drab in a making process and did not look like a Finnish air force plane. I think it looks like a Finnish plane by adjusting a color like washing.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKTo give the texture of cloth upholstered aircraft, I tried a strong dry-brushing for some parts. It looks like the aging body after the recovery of green color. Still, I think that it is very better than the color taste before the adjustment.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKThe light blue of Harkenkreuz mark of Finnish Air Force is characteristic.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKThe fuselage lower parts are light blue and yellow.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKI did the weathering around the exhaust pipe. The sense of use for 5cm small model, nice looking.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKI thought that there might not need the shading the camouflage because of a small scale. If there is a chance next time, I’ll compare the shaded camouflage and sharp camouflage.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKThis is also SWEET commentary, Romanian Air Force received 12 aircraft of the hurricane in March 1940, and held it with the addition of three aircraft that were captured from Yugoslavia, the total was 15 aircraft. I was assigned to the defense mission of the Black Sea coast at the time of the Operation Barbarossa start.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKLieutenant Horia Agarici of this model shot down three Soviet Union bombers after an Operation Barbarossa opened. Lieutenant Agarici was the Romanian ace pilot of the Swiss-born. He became a fighter pilot through a bomber pilot and survived through WWII. He lived until 1982 after the war.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKI didn’t think the blur of a color turning point of the camouflage especially. It is just right when I display a 1/144 scale on my shelf.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKI did washing in a slightly brown, and a dry-brushing on a cloth part thinly.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKAs for the nationality mark of the Romanian Air Force, a round mark is in the center of the cross during the World War II whether it is the influence of Germany. It is a circular mark now.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKThe antenna wire was tensioned with detailed work. It is a super-thin metal line.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKThe body underside is a very strange painting with white and black. There is a yellow accent in the all-around and feels cool.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORK“Easy to Build Just 2 Minutes!!” on the box. It is just a catchphrase, but considering, such as camouflage paint, two minutes is impossible. Anyway, they’re precise parts, so it’s best that we can build them easily!

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKThere are still a lot of improvement points, now it’s the first 1/144 camouflage painting. I want to make use of this experience to the next building. That I noticed one thing, care must be taken in the assembly since the all clear parts kit is difficult to recognize the shape.

FINISH AND ROMANIAN AIR FORCE HURRICANE 1/144 FINISHED WORKThe Hurricane, it is smart. It’s necessary to make a big scale Hurricane next time. When I made a small Zero 1/144, I have said a similar thing, but have not yet made it. There is the kit at hand and waiting…
