  1. thanks @wimbledon99 especially for the "young" , but I was young at least until 20 years ago
  2. Thanks to the hosts and other builders for this group build on what is in fact one of my favorite aircraft and thanks also to those who gave me their vote, for me it is the first "#1 place" even if ex-aequo
  3. Hi! The first steps in the construction of the Hurricane were the assembly of the wheel wells and its fixing inside the wing halves the fit is very good and the joint with the fuselage seems to be fine too I am building the MkI and the MkIIc at the same time and I notice that some small defects in the first have been corrected in the second (wheel wells fixing and fuselage/wing junction) Contrary to what one might think they are 2 different molds
  4. Great job, excellent painting and weathering I am building the MkI and the MkIIc at the same time and I notice that some small defects in the first have been corrected in the second (wheel wells and fuselage / wing junction)
  5. Thank You @Mountain Modeler , I've found the recipe of salmon red on a magazine (how to build Tamiya's 1/32 F4U-1 Corsair) : 2 part of XF10 Flat Brown 2 part of XF2 Flat White 1 part of XF4 Yellow Green 1 part of XF7 Flat Red I made a jar that I will also need for the 1/32 Birdcage

  9. Hi! I would like to join in this GB with a Hawker Hurricane Mk.I from Arma Hobby , 1/72nd scale I have not yet chosen the subject, I have looked at which subjects have already been registered to avoid "copies" The box contains the following subjects: P3901 RF-E - n° 303 sqn RAF - W. Urbanowitz V6757 RF-E - n° 303 sqn RAF - J. Zumbach V6605 YO-N - n° 1 sqn RCAF borrowed to 303 sqn - Z. Henenberg Also I have a decal sheet from Sky Models that allows me to make these other subjects: N2359 YB-J - n° 17 sqn RAF - L.W. Stevens (?) V6864 DT-A - n° 257 sqn RAF - R. Stanford Tuck P3395 JX-B - n° 1 sqn RAF - A.V. Clowes Finally I have a series of roundels, letters and numbers from Tally-Ho and Eagle Strike with which I can compose almost any fuselage code and serial number, but I lack personal or squadron insignia I still take some time to decide Below are the photos of the box and aftermarket
