Hawker aircraft 1940 to 1980

Beautiful! The amount of work that must have gone into making some of those oldies look as stunning as they do here is jaw-dropping.

 

That collection put a big smile on my face.

 

Cheers,

Mark.

The upgrading of those old Airfix kits is totally stunning.
Say, that first Airfix Hurricane, which kit was that originally..?

It was I think was the second Hurricane that Airfix produced - not the original Mk.IV RP, but the one after that. I totally rescribed it, reshaped it, added an interior, etc. One day I will replace that fragile aerial mast and put it on straight this time.
