Progress on the Luftwaffe Afrika Korps Pilot and other things

Firstly, I am not getting on too well with the Whitley. I am currently working on tidying up the camouflage before I put the decals on. The dividing line between the upper side and the aluminium underneath is proving a bit tricky around the engine nacelles.

I am getting on quite well with the Luftwaffe pilot but have reached the point where I always have difficulty - the face. Anyway, this is where I am with it.

The body is pretty much finished. The forage cap is nearly done - just a little more touching up. I have the goggles to complete and then... the face! The face has had some pre-shading and now has its first overcoat. Some way to go though!

My other little project is following on from recent completions. I seem to have got it in my head to have a go at some 1/144th aircraft. I have done a few before and I quite like the fact that they can be competed quite quickly. The current project is a Revell Miniwings 1/144th Hawker Typhoon Mk1. I know that I have just finished the Airfix 1/72nd scale version but I have had this since before Modelzone shut down (one of my few purchases from that store).

You can see how small it is up against the pencil.
