And yet another Arma Hobby Hurricane..

Recommended Posts

After reading so many good comments about this kit I thought I have to try one myself. And, I wasn't disappointed either.

It's a super model with finely recessed and engraved panel lines and details. Some of the parts are really exquisite to say the least. I chose one of the 'Expert Kit' versions and these include a fret of photo etch and extra markings. I must admit I didn't use some of the PE as they were just too fiddly. You even get landing lights to put behind the clear parts and some tiny Sutton harness seatbelts and instrument panel. A plastic one is also provided. Oh, and a set of canopy and wheel masks too. Two rear canopies are provided too, one for the closed position and one slightly wide for the pushed back open position.

If I had to have a little whinge it would be I thought the canopy parts were a little on the thick side and I'm sure (for the version I did anyway), the squadron codes should be Sky and not pale grey? They do actually show them as Sky on the colour drawings but the decals aren't.

Anyway, roll on the Wildcat. Thanks for looking.

Absolutely beautiful and I love the way it's displayed. May I ask what scale the model is in?

That's great! The finish is flawless. Makes a nice change to see a Hurricane in a scheme other than dark earth and green. Really suits it. Lovely work there 👍

I have one of the MkIs I'm really looking forward to building but it looks as though I may need to invest in some MkIIs as well!😀

Gorgeous build mate. I need to get my IIc built soon and I might just steal your paint scheme for it! Looks brilliant.

Outstanding Hurricane, well done,Keith. Out of interest, would you say the 'Expert version' is worth the extra money?

Thank you too. (and everyone else) Probably only if you want some extra marking choices and seatbelts, but they're available from other sources anyway. I didn't really use much of the fret at all to be honest.

That's beautiful! Great paint job, and the base really sets it off. They're fantastic kits aren't they?

Superlatives all the way Keith- what a great finish on the model.  Never having tried an Arma model I can see I will have get out the flexible friend.

And another outstanding rendition of the famed Hurricane from the outstanding Arma Hobby brand :goodjob:.  I need to get one myself sooner rather than later ( This coming from someone who has 800+ unbuilt kits awaiting attention :banghead: )

Congratulations, that's an excellent build!

Inspires me to desire one or two of these kits for my stash.

If I could get a result anywhere approaching yours, I would be well pleased.
