Airfix 1:48 Tropical Hurricane

Recommended Posts

I’m more into military vehicles but I have an Airfix 1:48 Mk Hurricane Mk I in my stash, this one

 

https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/hawker-hurricane-mk-1-1-48.html

 

and I don’t real like the colour scheme.

 

I have a question

 

Does anyone know if this can this be built as a standard Battle of Britain Mk I ?

 

Clearly I will need some different decals.  Alternatively, build as a tropical but with different decals.

 

Any suggestions, I know absolutely nothing about after market decals and don’t want to spend much as this is only a bit of fun - I only paid around £10 on the kit so don’t really want to spend the same on decals.

 

Cheers,

 

Nigel

Sea Hurricane now that may be interesting.  Don’t recall seeing an arrestor hook - will have a closer look at the sprues.

 

Cheers,

All of the parts for the Sea Hurricane are on the Tropical and Mk.I sprue, including a new lower rear fuselage insert and catapult spools.

I had the same situation as you, I built it as a Battle of Britain aircraft but used decals I had from another kit. Are you comfortable with masking letters and painting them on yourself? That's always a free option! Looking forward to seeing whatever you choose to do 😃

I built my BoB Mk I boxing using Finnish markings so probably have the Airfix decal sheet in my decal stash. PM me your address and if I still have them I'll send them to you if you want them.
