Hi folks,here,s Airfix,s Hurricane in 1/48 built to represent a MKII in Russian service,thanks to info supplied by Troy I have altered the kit,s spinner by simply using putty and sanding to a shape more representative of this mark,also scribed new panel lines to cover the extra four guns carried and added their detail on the wing leading edge.The model is 2mm to short has a different tail wheel( which I have had a go at) and there are other details not correct but for a £6:99 kit I,ve enjoyed building three of them with only the Rumanian version left to finish which I hope to post tomorrow.thanks for looking build info below,thanks for looking! http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234967231-airfix-148-hurricane-raf-rumanian-russian/
I built a MkII Viper a few months ago and a friend ended up buying it, so I couldnt do without one myself as I think they are among the best looking fighters in Science Fiction, so ive ended up building another. I recently completed the MkVII version in under a day to set myself a challange to see if I could do it, this time however, that was not possible, there is simply too much work involved in the MkII. So instead its taken a leisurely 2 days to complete minus weathering which I shall do later today! More pics to follow!
Finally got hold of a decent camera and present my first model in 15 years! A heavily weathered and battle scarred Viper MkII I noticed the other day that the tail number belongs to "Husker" as it's the one on the Viper presented to Commander Adama in the mini series. You'll notice a decal missing from the base. A recurring theme in the models I'm finishing off at the moment. Les and decals don't get on well!
