Special Hobby 1/32 Whirlwind
By Jean-françois Boissy
Here is my last build, a nice kit for a nice plane.
This kit is really cool to assemble. I deepened the engraving and redid all the riveting which is quite light on the kit, otherwise everything else is quite easy to build.
The weathering and chipping was inspired by a photo of the real plane which was heavily chipped.
I took a photo of the Whirlwind with a Bearcat to compare the sizes of the aircraft.
