Hurricane Mk I Expert set model kit contains additional accessories for upgrading plastic parts: photo-etched parts sheet and canopy masks. Today we start to look closer at the model. And the accessories included are presented first.
The instrument panel and decal
The decal contains four markings options that will be discussed one after another in the next articles on our blog. Decal is mentioned today, because it is an essential addition to the photoetched parts of the instrument panel.
Two decals from this sheet are needed to finish it.
- The first one is with instrument “clocks” (#54), printed without a black background. We recommend to glue it on a black plastic plate.
- Next, the photoetched instrument board (#5 and #1), preferably painted in a very dark grey semi-matt colour should be applied to the “clocks” decal. Best is to glue them with clear varnish (acrylic, so that it does not dissolve the decal).
- Then place the second decal (#55) on the instrument panel plate.
The contrast between the black, glossy surface of the clocks and the semi-matte lighter shade surface of the board will give it an extra depth. The decal itself has a better representation of the clocks than the film.
