Readers’ Gallery: Steve Cook’s 1/48 Accurate Miniatures Gulfhawk II


Steve Cook shared this awesome looking Gulfhawk. What a cool looking scheme, Steve- great work!

Hi everyone, and God bless. This is the Accurate Miniatures 1/48  Gulfhawk II. This kit is a very nice model and fits together with little effort. There are some minor fixes that you will run into. I had to re-adjust the resin cowling by soaking it in some boiling water for just a few seconds,and with a little bending it was perfect again. I tossed the top cowling plate and used the plastic one that came with the kit, filled in all the areas and re-modified it to look like the resin one. I used Tamiya X-6 orange over all. The decals were set in water for 3-5 minutes and worked  perfect,they are made by Aeromaster. This is in my opinion one of your more builder friendly kits, with some very minor fixes.
