  1. This was my build for the Britmodeller, 2020, Battle of Britain Group Build. The Hurricane is from the Airfix 1/48, Ready for Battle Gift Set. The only things I added extra were the motor - to run the prop, the aerial wire and the pilot figure which is, I think, from the Airfix Seafire kit. I thoroughly enjoyed the build even though the kit has to be carefully assembled due to some tight tolerances. This Gift Set was a birthday present from a colleague at work a few years ago - so I would like to say a big thank you for the very thoughtful gift. Kit: Airfix 1/48 Ready For Battle Gift Set Paints: Humbrol, Revell, Citadel, Vallejo acrylics all applied by paint brush Extras: miniature motor and plasticard for supporting the motor plus a hair for the aerial wire. The WIP can be found HERE The vignette photos can be found HERE Please excuse the electrical wires in these first photos. The wires are for the motor and, as can be seen lower down, they pass through the base under the wheels once the aircraft is in place on the base. These were taken against a white background and without the prop working: [ The next set of photos are of the Hurricane with the prop motor running and with it on my Spitfire display base - which has a photographic sky background: Next a couple of photos of the Hurricane with some of the ground crew and smaller equipment from the set: More photos of the vignette can be found HERE Finally a big thank you must go to the fantastic hosts of the GB and to everyone who took the time to comment or offer advice in my WIP thread. Kind regards, Stix EDIT - 16/10/20: @Troy Smith, in a post further down this page, kindly posted one of my photos alongside a photo of the actual aircraft. The photo of the actual aircraft was this one: Apart from the angle being a little low, the photo of mine was pretty similar - except it was in colour........so: I figured I could also do the same with a similar view but with the ground crew around: ...and while I was about it I did a few others: Kind regards, Stix
  2. My next build will be my first (but not last) from the Xtradecals X72117 'RAF Battle of Britain' sheet. Having completed the Hurricane (WiP here) from this: the next obvious selection is the Spitfire. Confusingly the box depicts 'Sailor' Milan's Mk1a but the instructions refer to a MkII so I shall put my fingers in my ears, go 'la la la'* and carry on, continuing my ignorance. Which scheme? I really like the white / night on K9867 but fear that it's capture on 23 May '40 make it too early. Next on the sheet is K9899 and I've read Robert's thread with interest... that's off the list then as I don't have the paint. I'll therefore go for X4474 QV-I from 19 Sqn, flown by Sgt Jennings, which I hope will just squeeze in (otherwise why is it on the sheet??!!). More research required on this Spit, and Sgt Jennings. Edit: Just realised that looks like I'm chanting the variant; perhaps I should have typed 'lah lah lah'?! And, of course, cursed the auto-correct that changed it back again!
  3. Here we go then chaps! For all intents and purposes, these two will be built side by side and come together at the end. This'll be the spitfire build. It's very BLUE! More soon. Rick.
