  1. Whilst spending a cold and snowy day indoors, and waiting for the paint to dry 🙄 on my Short Stirling build, I settled down and watched 2 episodes of Plane Resurrection on Netflix. The first being the rebuild of a beautiful Mustang and the second a Hawker Hurricane (Mk.I). This made me wonder which of these i had in my stash (and I had one of each, although my Hurricane is a Mk.IIC), and which to build next? I have built a Mustang in the past, but was keen for another attempt using my airbrush, and as of yet I haven't attempted a Hurricane. Unable to choose I asked my son, and he chose the Hurricane, so a Hurricane it is. Watching the documentary, has made me appreciate this little fighter more, understand its role in the Battle of Britain, how the fabric covered wing construction made it light, and able to withstand a little more of the onslaught, and how later variants moved on to ground assault, so he's hoping I do my little kit proud. So onto the build, I am planning to build Revell's 1:72 Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIC, in the colours of No.28 Squadron, RAF South East Asia Command from 1944. I picked the kit up cheap on EBay a while ago, and it consists minimal black and white instructions, and a little sheet of decals (I may well airbrush the white stripe to the wings and tail). There are 6 sprues, all with little to no flash but detailing is a little scarce. I plan to make this an out of the box build with landing gear down. Now the fun can begin......😀
  2. This is the old Testors Westland Lysander Mk.II from the Italeri reboxing, which I picked up second hand some years back. It includes the addition of the Eduard photo-etch interior and a some scratch building for adding some detail missing from the relatively basic kit. It was a build to fill a gap in my collection and was built around July to September last year (well before Hendie went on his epic and magnificent build of the same kit), Decals are based off the Xtradecal sheet for the centenary of No.II(AC) Squadron which included Lysander KO-O, modified to represent KO-Q. Paints are a mix of WEM and Humbrol enamels. Lysander Mk.II N1217 KO-Q was on strength with No.II(AC) Squadron in the latter half of 1940, following their return from the Battle of France. In that timeframe it was the aircraft regularly flown by P/O Wilfred Shearman with his usual gunner/observer Sgt Shaw. On 24 October 1940, this aircraft and its crew from 'A' Flight No.II(AC) Sqdn were transferred to the newly reformed No.268 Squadron, then based at Westley near Bury St Edmunds. P/O Shearman, Sgt Shaw and N1217 KO-Q would remain on the strength of No.268 Sqdn, P/O Shearman until posted out in late 1940 and N1217 until it was lost in a crash in February 1941. During its first few weeks with No.268 Sqdn, N1217 continued to operate with its 'old' No.II(AC) Sqdn codes, until it was repainted with the No.268 Sqdn 'NM' identification codes. Another to my collection of Squadron, Army-Cooperation and Tactical Reconnaissance aircraft. Enjoy.
