Thanks for this.

I managed to unsubscribe but only the English Version.  Can't read or see how to unsubscribe the Polish version!

Looks good from the CADs, the only glitch I can see is the wing tips, head on they are like very thin triangles, not curved/bulged, this a mistake Hasegawa made.

Otherwise, looks good.

It maybe just an illusion from the CAD,  and easy enough to fix if it as shown.  

 

Apologies if anyone things it's CAD slandering,  I feel strongly that the Hurricane suffers from "not being a Spitfire.." and try to redress the balance.

Good for Arma for doing this.

If that’s the only thing that you can spot Troy, then it must be pretty close to the mark.

I think you do not have to worry about that, CAD designer explained on Polish forum, that he reads online remarks and incorporate them into projects, if possible. 👌

This should sell like proverbial hot cakes. I know I will be getting several.

I`m so excited about this! Especially since it pretty much came out of the blue. :D

 

One thing though... Would your kit include 5 spoke wheels or has CMK patented this for all 1/72 Hurricane kits? I would so appreciate it if I could avoid resin aftermarkets for this one.

Unless I'm mistaken (which is often) I believe the earlier 5 spokers were only seen on the earliest of Fabric wing Hurricanes. Four spokes are right for this kits period in time. I'm writing this without consulting references so I'm bound to be proven wrong soon enough.

According to Troy.

Anyway, all Romanian late Mk.Is with metal wings had 5 spoke wheels and iirc the same thing was true of the Finnish machines.

They seem to be only on the first two batches, L**** and N**** serials, so plenty of metal winged, including the Finnish and Romanian planes.

After that 4 spoke.

Yep, the twelve Romanian metal wings were: L2077, L2078, L2085, L2093, L2094, L2095, L2096, L2097, L2104, L2112, L2113 and L2114.

According to this book, which I had close by:

https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235031176-hawker-hurricane-voli-of-the-illustrated-history-of-romanian-aviation/

 

Again, it would be nice to have this option in plastic.

Great news indeed:thumbsup: I still can't believe that Airfix missed this opportunity they had for several years.

Rejoice rejoice!  At last.  Well done Arma.  Will 'have' to have several of these.  I can finally include a standard Battle of Britain Hurricane in the collection - well, several, actually.  RAF, Polish and RAuxAF.   501 and 303 are a given for me.  I'll have much fun deciding on an RAF regular squadron to build.  Silly old Airfix really missed a trick here.  Looking forward to Armas' Spitfire XIV kit (please, please, pretty please).

Oh, and I see there are plans for a tropical version too.  Looks like I'll be able to build Imshi Mason's aircraft as well.

Logic would suggest that any subject with a Polish / Czech / British connection 'could' also be potential Arma kit possibilies. Who's for a good quality Spitfire Vb and Mustang III then?? 

 

Cheers.. Dave.

I've not been so excited about a kit since Airfix's Defiant. Having looked at the price of Arma kits, I suspect that the Hurricane will be attractively priced, even for a skinflint like me. If this is the kit I hope it is, I will need a lot of them for my BoB collection.

 

Can't wait to get my hands on one!

 

Cheers,

Mark.

They DID NOT miss a trick here.  It could only have been tooled at the expense of something else.

 

In fact we should be glad: it has given Arma Hobby something to get started on.  Let's hope it does well for them and gets them on a steady path to other rather 'niche' subjects.  A Spitfire Xll perhaps....?
