A tiny 601 Sqn Hurricane (1/72 Arma)


Recommended Posts

I am currently building a 1/24th scale model of Hawker Hurricane with reporting code UF*S from my Grandad's squadron during the Battle of Britain.

 

With it being a very large project I am interspersing it with a few small projects, the first of which is this, a small version of the same aircraft.

 

I used the Arma Hobby kit, which is gorgeous and painted it in Alclad enamel colours. With most of the aircraft during the Battle being fairly young I have kept the weathering light, with only gun and exhaust staining and a bit of mud above the wheels.

The last shot shows it head to head with an Airfix Hurricane I must have built nearly 20 years ago with Humbrol starter kit acrylics!

Two things to mention.

1. Keeping a kit for 20 years without serious damage is something special, on its own.

2. Your latest Hurricane is exceptional.  Bravo.

How absolutely lovely. 

 

Very very nice build - I've just picked one of these up, and having seen this am going to make a start on it today. 

 

Really very tidy build, and I like the subtle weathering. I think mine may well be rather more of a beater!

Thank you very much all! I think it is probably the best RAF scheme of the Battle.

The big one has been awesome so far, I have no idea where I am going to put it when done though... 

 

On the topic of weathering, I am really bad at weathering so am always nervous about ruining a model with it. I need to pick some subjects which need heavy weathering to force me to do more.

That really is something, it's stunning build and could pass for a much bigger scale. It's night and day compared to your older model. Deeply impressed at your skill.
