'Don't you yell at ME, Mister Warwick!' Battle of Britain Movie Hurricane, Sywell 1968

Recommended Posts

This is the lovely Airfix 1/48 Hurricane which I thoroughly enjoyed building  - it went together like a dream and is criminally underrated IMHO.... 

 

Part of the BOB film was shot at Sywell and I knew I wanted to do a Hurricane for a display at Sywell Aviation Museum but I wanted the viewer to realise it was 'set' in 1968 not 1940 hence the use of the Kodak van! I had to add 'Suzannah York' too - courtesy of the Revell/ICM set....

What? No camera, film crew and trolley tracks? 😉 And where'e the exploding hangar??? hee hee hee...

 

Another lovely little dio. I think I might have to make a trip down to Sywell next year to see more!

 

Keep up the great work, TT

 

Cheers

Thanks Kev- I knocked this together to go in the same display. It helps when the full size was 500yards away from the Museum at Air Leasing at Sywell...

 

Hobbbycraft Buchon and I bought an old Monogram 109G and nicked the cockpit. My first ever try at plunge moulding to do the canopy...

Lovely little diorama.

I remember the movie scene well!

Still one of my all-time favourite films to this day.
