Hi folks, this is the latest Arma Hobby kit build OOB with few add-ons: - brass tubing for outer gun barrels - newly moulded canopy hood - resin exhausts from Quickboost - riveted Painted with Real Colors and Gunze Aqeous paints. Decals from the box depicting the 274.sq machine from Egypt, 1942. Overall, a gorgeous kit, I love especially the subtle yet nicely visible wing surface improvement compared to the previous C wing. Cheers Libor
Okay folks. This is going to be a combined WIP with my good friend and neighbour Shoey. Shoey's grandfather Ron Gibson (Papa) flew the MkIIc in Burma with 11 Squadron. Ron served with distinction in Burma flying his "Buccaneer" Hurribomber all year round (even through the monsoon season) and survived the conflict earning a D.F.C. R.H. Gibson D.F.C. now lives quietly in Adelaide South Australia....a very much loved and admired member of his family. For this build I am making a Revell 1:72 Burma Hurricane (I actually had one in the stash before knowing the story) with modified markings to depict exactly Ron's aircraft. Shoey is going to add something different. Being an RC enthusiast he is going to finish a full flying version of his grandfathers aircraft again with modified markings. The basic plane is built but together we're going for some extra authenticity with some of the paint finishes, weathering and panel lines So that's it. It's a two for one deal (one small static plastic one and one huge composite flying version).......and we both hope to do Ron justice with our efforts. More to come soon..... I think I have model envy already Ha Ha!
