Yet another Hurricane (Airfix 1/48)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi chaps, 

 

After reading for quite a while, and then joining, this is not my first Hurricane, but certainly my first showing to strangers to be commented on (if anyone likes to do so)...

The first thing any Hurricane/BoB specialist will see is that I goofed big time on the camo scheme. This is my first non-paintbrushed camouflage, and being all nervous about working with those rattle cans, i switched the colours...

...which is not a big problem for myself, as I've built and marked it as I liked, not based on an existing plane. Just a little bit, because I know about it...

I've assigned my plane to No. 145 squadron, because the squadron code is the same as the town "code" of my car - SO. I would have loved to build one after original pics, but I keep getting the same single one, SO-K, which was fitted with an experimental bulged canopy... and I neither had nor wanted one. The L was from my daughter's first name. Enough words for now, more pics.

One more sentence - please don't see the spots at the front cowling near the wing root.

Hope you had fun with the pictures. If anyone wants to drop a line, chocks away! Maybe I'll manage to post some other things rather soon.

(Due to covid-19 crisis I am temporarily home all day, but time keeps slipping through my fingers🤷🏼‍♂️

Nothing wrong with that , looks like a tidy Hurricane to me .  The pilot looks happy too .  :goodjob:

Thanks Keith! As it would be me in my hurricane returning alive - and maybe victorious - from a fight, I would certainly be happy😁
