  1. Zvezda is to release in 2021 a new tool "easy-build series" 1/72nd Hawker Hurricane Mk.I kit - ref. 7322 Source: https://vk.com/doc6108131_578170851?hash=b62de4a6f84263e904 V.P.
  2. I am about to start a Hurricane so |I thought I would start this thread. The Spitfire thread I started seems to be a melting pot where we all share and learn...first (stupid question)....I hope people find this helpful...doh!
  3. Hello all, let me present a recent builds of Arma Hobby´s Hurricanes. The first one is a Hurricane in Portugal colours and it was really a pleasant OOB build. The second one is a most successful Hurricane of 310 Czechoslovak squadron during the BoB with 6 kills claimed by several pilots. The kit is also a part of small group build with my friends dedicated to Bob adversary. I hope you like it. If you are interested in a bit more details and photos, I would appreciate your visit there on my blog http://72insight.com/en/hawker-hurricane-mk-i-and-mk-iic-1-72-arma-hobby/ Here on the blog
  4. Here's my latest completion, Douglas Bader's mount from the end of the BoB. Almost from the box, I only added Xtradecals decals (DB's aircraft wasn't in the kit and my Italeri kit only had McKnight's aeroplane), Aviology stencils, seatbelts and mirror from Airwaves and rigging wire. I also made the footstep-operating handhold cover from a piece of etched brass. All paints are Model Master enamels. Build is at: Just realised looking at the photos that the mirror's disappeared - I'll have to find that or replace it. The exhaust staining isn't as pronounced as I'd intended but I'm r
  5. These are some pics of the Airfix Hurricane Mk.I Trop. I built this one together with my daughter, whose favourite WW2 fighter is the Hurricane, since we visited Old Warden in May 2019.. I think the Hurricane looks more impressive with 4 cannon, so I bought some Master cannon to make it look like a MK.IIC. Actually, the topside of the wing would have to be changed as well, but I decided to let that be... The markings are form Xtradecal set X48149, a Hurricane MK.IIC of 1 sqn, SAAF, September 1942. For painting I used Vallejo Acrylics, mainly dark earth, middle stone and azure blu
  6. My next project is the new mould Airfix Hurricane Mk.I, the subject of a number of builds here already. I'll be building mine with Xtradecals markings for Douglas Bader's 242SQN mount out of Duxford during the Battle of Britain. It'll be pretty much out of the box (if I can restrain myself...) The seat and floor are done. Slight weathering of the floor and I've cut the locating lugs off the seat armour so I can fit the seat to the fuselage first, as reviews suggest that's an easier way to go. I've also elected to clamp the spars in place on the lower wing now and will
  7. "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few" As today marks the last day of what was the official period of the Battle of Britain my contribution over from the Group build. These are the latest boxings from Airfix, built straight from the box with the kit's markings . May add a little more weathering but a bit of a rush at the end to finish them today.
  8. New Eduard and Arma Hobby Kits in stock @ MJW Models! We've got the new Ltd Ed Eduard 1/48 + 1/72 Bf110 kits in stock - in both scales you can do one of 12 different C or D models from the Battle of Britain, including a 30mm cannon armed C-6! The New Profipack Mustang is the F-6 Photo-Recce version with fuselage mounted cameras and comes with 6 different and interesting marking options. There's also the latest MiG-21 Weekend kit plus Arma Hobby's great looking Hurricane Mk IIB/C Expert kit. The Hurricane can be built as any one of 3 different IIb's or IIc's and comes with mask and etch.
  9. I would like to enter this one, it will be rocket armed operation out of Yugoslavia 1945. Cheers Jes
  10. Shiver me timbers and pieces of eight! Here be a second build thread from that lubber who said he'd only have one! Erm, sorry for that nonsense. Not quite sure what happened there...... a bit of my native Somerset must have surfaced, and its only a short plank walk from a Wurzel "Arrr!" to a Pirate "Arrrrrrrrr!" Anyway, things have been going very slowly on my original workbench thread, with the mojo for the Airfix Tomahawk fizzling away for absolutely no good reason. In the meantime, I've been wanting to make a proper start on my Arrrrrrrrr-ma (sorry!) Hurricanes, but
  11. My next build is the 1/48 Airfix Hurricane Mk1. I have some P Maks and decals for serial/Sqn Codes to model 249 Sqn Hurricane P3616 GN-F I read the book 'Gun Button to Fire' by Tom 'Ginger' Neil, who was a Pilot Officer and flew with 249 Sqn during the battle. He loved his Hurricane, P3616 coded GN-F. Whilst on a days leave, it was flown by another pilot, Pilot Officer Martyn Aurel King. Sadly he was shot down and killed, having bailed out but suffering a collapsed parachute. PO Martyn Aurel King
  12. Hawker Hurricane Mk.I (A01010A) Airfix 1:72 If one was to asked to give the name of a British fighter that took part in the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire would undoubtedly be the most common answer. However, the aircraft that provided the backbone of the defence in that infamous battle was the Hawker Hurricane. Designed in 1935, it was quite a step forwards to the existing front line RAF fighters of that era, key features being a fully enclosed cockpit, retractable undercarriage, 8 guns, powerful V12 engine and most notably, a single cantilever wing as opposed to a
  13. Source: https://www.facebook.com/ArmaHobby/posts/3462056447158021 Considering it'll be most probably a WWII period a/c and in 1/72nd this will be uninteresting to me... My (Polish) wishes - 1/48th plastic kits from: TS-8 Bies, TS-11 Iskra & PZL-130 Orlik. V.P.
  14. Going through the stash the other week I came across an oddment of kits that I do not normally build, but I have acquired over the past year or so. First up is the Spitfire that was given away by the Daily Mail one week, second is a Hurricane that I bought for some reason or other and the last is a Defiant that was won by SWMBO at a show tombola. So I am going to try this as a triple build, but if required I will put them into separate entries. I do know that the Hurricane has the wrong markings for the BoB, so I have been looking at either a Czech or Polish one, but the only decal sheet I can
  15. Airfix is to release in 2014 a variant from the new 1/72nd "fabric wings" Hurricane (ref.A02067), a Hawker Hurricane Mk.I "metal covered wings" under ref. A01010.

  16. Hello, I had a long journey with that kit - it's easier than mk.I, however my low skills caused several problems on various steps. I cannot wait for 1/48 kit which should look as 1/24 in the box.
  17. Hello, and welcome to my first WIP on Britmodeller! No exotic plastic here I'm afraid, just the newish Airfix 1/72 Hurricane which I'm sure is familiar to most readers. The obligatory box and sprue shot: This was an impulse buy. I saw it sitting on the shelf of my LMS, thought "I fancy making a Hurricane with a two bladed prop", and picked it up. Naturally, it turned out that this was not a boxing which included the two bladed prop option (I could maybe have guessed this from the box art) and that furthermore that I already had these exact same sprues in th
  18. I offer these pair of RAF fighters for inspection. I bought them a couple years ago in an Aldi store for about £4 a piece including the acrylic paints and brush.. Starter Kits ! They were fun to make and my partner ,who is a teacher ,uses them for children as part of VE Day celebrations. The kids do drawings of them and use the planes to get their cammo schemes something like the original! the decals are quite thick and I painted then too thick.. but hey they amused me and they get to inspire some lively and creative
  19. Hi All, Fresh from the Spitfire GB I have decided to make a little change and start off with a Hurricane. This will be the first Hurricane I have built... and the first new Airfix 1/48 kit, so all new territory as far as I am concerned (so far I have built a Tamiya Spitfire MKI which was an excellent re-introduction to the world of aircraft modelling. I enjoyed it so much that I then followed up by joining Britmodeller and taking part in the Spitfire Group Build with two Eduard Spitfires, a MkIX and a Mk VIII. I bought the Airfix Hurricane almost 'blind' but fancied a B
  20. Hi Everyone, I'm sure we're all aware of the Imperial War Museum Film collection and the visual treasures contained within their archives. While looking around for films that might have footage of 43 Squadron during WWII (there's some of their Hurricanes departing for the Dieppe raid, but that's another topic) on the main page there are currently two links somewhat cryptically titled 'Advance Record Material' and 'Boston Raid'. Intrigued by the titles I took a look since the thumbnail pictures appeared to cover the North African campaigns so might have something I was originally lo
  21. I'll be honest. I didn't know who Bob Kershaw was until I bought the kit. For those of you who may be in a similar boat, here's his story : The Arma Hobby Hurricane Mk.1 Expert Set came with the markings for Bob Kershaw's Hurricane, and I couldn't resist the temptation. What can I say? It's a Hurricane by Arma Hobby - Great kit and a very enjoyable building experience. Now I'm desperately trying to avoid buying the Arma Hobby Yak1b ! Thanks for looking. Time to head back.
  22. Trying something new here. "Here we will stand and fight; there will be no further withdrawal. I have ordered that all plans and instructions dealing with further withdrawal are to be burnt, and at once. We will stand and fight here. "If we can’t stay here alive, then let us stay here dead." -- Lieutenant General Bernard Law Montgomery, GOC 8th Army, 13 August 1942 As I said above, I'm building two Arma Hurricanes; the "old" MkI kit, and their new MkIIc, which is supposed to be excellent. The latter aircraft was the mount of Cana
  23. So guys just shifted over from this thread. in continuation of my quest to restore Hurricane Mk I P5202/Z7059 depending on which source you believe (although i would be P 5202 which shot down a Me110 on 11.9.40 whilst with 213 Sqn.) I wanted to do a ACSEA marked aircraft but seems not possible?? i want to do it half exposed and unpainted and half covered and painted. I find the main wheel hubs suspiciously like those of the vampire NF 10 parked next to it??
  24. The Hurricane MK 1 - 1/24 by Airfix RFI Hello and a happy new year to you all. I'd like to start the new year with the RFI of my last actual completed build of 2019. She has been built for a month or so but I didn't find the right moment to do the RFI. You must excuse the sheer amount of pics once again but I do like to indulge myself sometimes. I couldn't fit her in my little photo tent thing so I took her outside and took a few shots while the sky was bright and fell in love all over again. The WIP can be found HERE and If you followed along you know how much ef

    RAF in Action

    I just now found some film footage I think many of you will like. Scenes of Spitfires being uncrated and erected on Gibraltar, and very interesting North African footage of Hurricane Mk IId's, I think from No. 6 Squadron, as well as what looks like Spitfire Vc's from No, 2 Squadron, SAAF, plus some good FAA footage. Too bad a lot of the serials on the Spitfires were not visible! Mike
