  1. Inspired by @CedB's multi-Hurricane build thread here, I thought I'd build two Arma kits in parallel. So taking up space on the bench where the Tomahawk really ought to be are a Mk.I and a Mk.IIc. I haven't entirely decided yet on the scheme and markings for the Mk.IIc - it could be CBI, it could be LF363 in the contentious scheme it wore while AVM Sir Stanley Vincent's toy, or it could be something else entirely. The Mk.I, however, will wear a Vokes air filter and be finished as one of 30 Sqn's all-black night-fighters: 30 Sqn, B Flight, Idku. A small start has been made, and here
  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 A couple of photos with one of my my latest kit. Arma Hobby 1/72nd Hawker Hurricane Mk.Ia - Eastern Front limited edition. Almost OOB. Painted old roundels under the decal crosses (as on the real machines) and painted tactical numbers. Vallejo Model Air paints.

  4. The venerable Hasegawa 1/48 Hurricane in 601 Squadron markings via Xtradecal. An article on Aircraft Resource Center should be coming in a month or so with more info and pictures.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Bit of a low mojo year for me. My Hobby Room is now my office, so spending leisure time in there is not high on my agenda (first world problems hey?). Only four completed this year. A Hurricane and a Skua waiting to be sprayed but hopefully they will be in 2021 year book. Here is what was finished though. Hope you enjoy them. Hawker Hurricane I (Trop.) W9327 OL*W 806 NAS Royal Navy Fighter Squadron, 269 Wing RAF. Sidi Haneish, Egypt. 20.11.41 3 x Ju87 Destroyed. Hawker Hurricane I (Trop.) W9327 OL*W 20.11.41 Shot down by a 'friendly' tomahaw
  8. Hurricane Wing Armaments (8 guns) Set 1:72 CMK by Special Hobby for Arma Hobby kit While the new Arma Hobbies Hurricanes are great kits they dont give you the option to open the wing gunbays. This new set from CMK gives us the gun bays for the 8 gun metal wing aircraft.As well as the main bays eight 303 machine guns are included with PE feed trays. PE is also provided for part of the internal structures in the wing, The last items in the box are new covers for the gun bays. All the parts are very well cast. with no issues visible at all.
  9. I started these two when they were re-released last year during the first lockdown and have now completed them. They are both really nice kits to build and look just right when completed - in particular, the Spit is the most Spitfirey Spitfire I've made. They are from the box except for tape harnesses and stretched sprue aerials and are brushed with Humbrol enamel. The only issue was with the decals. At least these stuck down (unlike the Spit XIV and Hunter) but they needed very varying amounts of soaking to release them and silvered even on a Kleer base. I'm going to finally give in and
  10. Hello Everyone, The Tamiya Hawker Hurricane Mk.I is a Superb kit, although its an Italeri rebox. The kit is a simple straight forward build and its a New tooling for the Hurricane in 1/48 scale. The detail is great out of the box for this scale and the panel lines are not overdone. The overall fit is great too. Decals provided are great with lots of options, a bit thick IMHO. I really liked the Finnish AF colors. The kit is built OOB and no mods are done. The paints used are locally available Acrylics and are airbrushed. For the c
  11. Hawker Hurricane Mk.I 1:48 Airfix A05127A 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 oppo
  12. I have been eagerly anticipating the Arma Hobby Hurricane since it was announced and have done a combined order with a friend of mine to get an expert kit and some overtrees. I also stocked up on Hurricne I decals as now this kit has been released, I can now do all the Hurricanes I ever wanted to. Unfortunately the Hurricanes were delivered to my friends house the day after I went up to see him and haven’t had the chance to revisit him so I did the only logical thing. I ordered another one! This arrived on Monday and it went straight to the top of the stack. Hopefully I can get it built for th
  13. 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
  14. Hi everyone. A miserable year in other respects, but quite an enjoyable one hobby-wise. One big project (Ark Royal) completed after a year of construction, another fairly big one (Airfix's Ready for Battle set) plus a few cleared from the shelf of doom. Ark Royal: More photos in the RFI thread here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235076648-ark-royal-circa-1587-finished-model/ Next up was Airfix's "Ready for Battle" set that I built in my first ever Group Build, this one being the Ba
  15. Good evening! My latest model and the first in a series of three Hurricanes: a IIc of 213 squadron in the Western Desert. As you can see, the a/c carries just two cannons. This seems to have been almost a standard configuration for the Hurricane IIc in the Mediterranean. As long as they were still used in the daytime air-to-air role, agility was more of a concern for the Hurricane than firepower. I used the Revell kit and Tamiya paint. This is not the best kit I have seen so far, but with some work it turned out ok. Thanks for looking and every comment welcome!
  16. Just finished this for the MTO GB, it is build out of the box, just corected a little on the decals. Brush painted with Humbrol, clear and satin with airbrush. Corrected wing Roundels Cheers Jes
  17. I would like to enter this one, it will be rocket armed operation out of Yugoslavia 1945. Cheers Jes

Yahu dashboard Vector Exhaust Paintings with the Ps 270 Airbrush : - Underside Vallejo Air "Eau du Nil" (paint used as Sky in 1940 before the real Sky type S was available in squadron) - AK real color Dark Green and Dark Earth paint on top Box + Model Alliance decals
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. "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.
