  1. Originally I intended to build this one as a Russian two-seat artillery observer, which would also take care of the problematic fuselage spine. In the end I just made a (relatively) quick build of it. It did receive some new wheels, a new prop and the cockpit was reworked. Full pictoral build here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3LHC0PNcXY Cheers, Luka
  2. Hello One and all... This is my 2nd Hurricane IIc build. It represents Lt. Stewart “Bomb” Finney’s 1 Squadron SAAF plane. It is coded AX*Z HL885 with the Dual nose art of the Springbok on either side, and “Oops” on the port rudder. Thanks to @rob85 for coming through with the decals. I have no WIP for either build as these were fill in builds during other projects. Questions, comments, and or thoughts ? Denni
  3. Hello Everyone... This is the first of two Hurricane IIc’s Ive been working on since Late November. It is night intruder LK*A BE500 of 87 squadron piloted by W/CDR Smallwood. It represents the aircraft after the rushed re-paints for Operation Jubilee in August 1942. Ive had a lot of good help from many people including Mike @72modeler trying to get this one right. I do hope you think it looks right. There isn't a W
  4. Hi, I am building the newest Hurricane mk IIc from Arma Hobby and I need some help with LKoA paint scheme (blog). Arma Hobby chose black/OG/DG: However, my interpretation of LKoA is quite different. I am a little unsure about lighter tone on DG (rudder, rear fuselage, elevator, ends of the wings). In my opinion, it's not definetly "brush strokes" effect, because in this case we should see them at the front of the fuselage and on the other aircraft. Of course, OG put on DG is only my proposal, but maybe someone saw something similar on other RAF planes and k
  5. Here I present my latest, a Hawker Hurricane IIc by Airfix and was a therapeutic 'test' build on a spare kit from the stash. From the start it was going to be a 'wheels up' subject as I plan to put the occasional aircraft on the ceiling of the future 'Man Cave (Mk II)' and being an Airfix kit, it came with pilot! The kit was built OOB and was very a good build with little or no problems, which surprised me some what. Cockpi was a little basic but was enough when you're stuffing a figure in the pit. Fuselage halves were joined and wings added, no filler in sight. Undercarriage and wheels
  6. Time to return to a long-running project I've been doing on and off over the last 5 years, namely Aircraft my Father Fixed. I started this project with this topic back in 2012: Aircraft my Father fixed! As you can see in that thread I've build quite a few of the aircraft so this thread is a bit of a re-tread as I'm going to build another Hurricane IIc from my Father's time with 5 Sqn in Burma. The reason being is that Fly came out with a IIc Trop kit which is better than the conversion I was forced to do in the original build (Here if you are interested). I also want to
  7. I have been working on this one on and off for a couple of months, using a part-built Revell Hurricane IIc which I bought and tidied-up, and decals from the venerable old Esci Hurricane/Kittyhawk sheet. Given a choice of three or four conflicting profiles and no photograph I could find, I decided to please myself and stick with the kit-supplied spinner, painted in the undersurface colour (for which I chose Azure Blue), use Middle stone for the base colour of the nose and wing leading edges, and then use Dark Green to supply the pseudo-Italian style squiggles and rings (hence "sand and spinach"
  8. Hi all I've just been reading Desmond Scott's book 'One More Hour'. There is a pic of him on his Hawker Hurricane IIc, coded 'Q'. 'O'? Are there any other pictures of it so that I might find out the last code letter and serial number? He appears to have been flying with 3 squadron from Martlesham Heath in 1941. Thanks in anticipation. M.M.
  9. Its finished! I haven't posted much during the later stages of painting because it was pretty standard fair - Klear, weathering, klear, decals, klear, matt varnish, last bits of weathering. Original build thread here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234934871-132-revell-hurricane-iic-5-sqn-burma-1944-45/ The only construction elements were adding the undercarriage legs and wheels, although that was not simple nor straightforward as the modifications needed to fit with the GMF Resin wheelbays meant a lot of realigning, detaching the doors from the legs, rebuilding t
