Far East Hurricane Collection, IIB, IIC, IID and IV

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, whilst waiting for paint and glue to dry on some other builds, I thought I`d give my old Hobbycraft Hurricane builds a bit of a refurb`

First up is my attempt at making a IIB from the IIC/IID kit, based in Burma

Added extra 4 guns and filled in the panel lines on the wings

The second is a IIC based in India

Which you saw a year or two ago which I`ve refined the weathering a bit

Thirdly a Burma based IID, which I initially painted with Grey and Green Camo`

Also added a few details I`d left off

And finally, a Malaysian based IV

Which has got a resin armoured radiator which was meant for the Hasegawa kit and rockets from a Tamiya Mossie or Beaufighter

I know the Hobbycraft kit has a few faults but it`s easier to get hold of, cheaper and because they`re all the same....

none of them look out of place

Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking

Cheers Russ

A great collection of Hurricanes. I'm just re-reading Hurricanes Over the Arakan so this is very timely for me. Great weathering and photography.

Great selection Russ, shows what a bit of a refurb can do. The paintwork is outstanding on all of them.
