Hard to concentrate on some specific detail...to many of them. Great work and attention on details.

BRAVO!

Best regards Djordje

I followed your WIP and was expecting something great. My expectations are exceeded. Museum quality, no less.

Congrats and a Happy New Year.

Wow!!! Thanks guys, you’re all so kind. 😇🥰 I won’t reply to all individually as I’d be here all day but you can all rest assured that I’m totally flattered. Thankyou all so much. 🤩🤩🤩🤩

by the way the ailerons are not glued and can flap about Willy nilly. Hope that makes it better. I’ll push em back up before sitting on the shelf. 🥳

Put a spot of glue on those ailerons or vibrations from walking around the room will constantly make them droop! and that;s all you'll see every time you look at it!! 😉  I don't believe they travel that far anyway. Too much drag.

Other than that, a lovely model of my favourite British fighter.

Oh wow, the final photos do not disappoint!

The weathering is just superb, I can't stop scrolling through all of the photos repeatedly picking out new details!

That's it... I'm chucking away my tools, giving my stash to the poor and turning my workbench into a card table... Just as soon as I pick my jaw up off the floor.

 

Yeah Man Cat

Brilliant work! I will pick up this kit this year to go with my 109. Now I have an airbrush I can tackle it but won’t get near to the quality of this. Bravo sir. Bravo

Wow! Cracking job, Sir! Your house complements the pictures; makes it look like an RAF station of the period because of the scale of the model and the closeness! Quite Excellent! Massive Hurricane deserves massive round of applause!👏👏👏👏👏

I don't think I've ever seen a finer build of this kit ever. Period. It is absolutely brilliant. Thank you for sharing.

Wowzer, I think that is the nicest built one of these I have ever seen, and you haven't resorted to aftermarket doodads either, just a little bit of finessing careful painting and a lot of love and LOOK at that result!

 

I hope mine turns out even an 1/8th as good as this, you should be very proud :)

 

Andy.

 

(p.s. who needs tamiya lol)
