Three from the BoB - well actually the Hurricane is April 1940 according to the painting guide but perhaps it made it home to defend the Home Isle against the Luftwaffe???  I really like these 1/72 Airfix kits.  The are fairly accurate, easy to assemble, come with a "wheels up" option and a pilot figure!  I acquired a set of AIrfix stands and used them here - talk about a step back in time!!!

 

They are all built out of the box and airbrushed using Tamiya paints on top and Gunze aqueous for the Sky.  Kit decals too.  I built them over a year ago but put them into storage.  This week I got them out and painted them.  I lost a few bits along the way including a pair of the turret guns and the rear antenna for the Defiant.  

 

They look pretty cool together and I think the large code letters suit these older types.

 

Cheers!!

Excellent, all three!

The in-flight configuration is undergoing a minor renaissance on this forum, which is cool.

Splendid trio.   Those stands bring back memories.  They actually look pretty good Airfix should re do them in their kits.

Lovely job Bill,

                      All three look superb mate,......... as you say,... not quite Battle of Britain,...... but representative and Airfix have done us proud with some great kits recently. You`ll be moving onto your 1/1 scale Lanc soon won`t you?

 

Cheers

What they all said. Great little kits, all three of them. And you have done them justice. Lovely paintwork and nice to see them in flight for a change. Those old clear stands bring back childhood memories of sitting room dogfights!!

Very tidy Vic formation! I can almost hear the roar of three Merlins at take-off power…

 

Kind regards,

Smashing trio. Difficult to separate.
