Hawker Hurricane Mk I and Mk IIc 1/72 Arma Hobby


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

let me present a recent builds of Arma Hobby´s Hurricanes. The first one is a Hurricane in Portugal colours and it was really a pleasant OOB build. The second one is a most successful Hurricane of 310 Czechoslovak squadron during the BoB with 6 kills claimed by several pilots. The kit is also a part of small group build with my friends dedicated to Bob adversary. I hope you like it. If you are interested in a bit more details and photos, I would appreciate your visit there on my blog http://72insight.com/en/hawker-hurricane-mk-i-and-mk-iic-1-72-arma-hobby/

Here on the blog you can also find another BoB Hurricane build by my friend Vladimir Kafka.

These are very nice Hurricanes. Perfect build and finish. As Vinnie pointed out, the Portuguese one is indeed a rare sight.

Nice to see these.  Glad I am not the only one who had problems with the Arma Mk.1 kit!    Also good to know the Mk.11C kit is better. Will reconsider building the one I have.  Incidentally, for those who were unaware, a number of retired Portuguese Hurricanes flew back to the UK for filming. They appeared in Angels One Five.

Well, despite some imperfections I still consider the Mk I kit on the top and better than many others kits and brands.

I saw Hurricanes in the title and I couldn’t click fast enough.

I wasn’t disappointed. They’re stunning.

😍😍😍😍😍😍

Really nice builds! I was admiring them at "72 InSight" and great to see them here. The bright green accents on the Portuguese bird are a nice touch to the camo colors.

Stunning! I hope to do a Portuguese bird too. Would you mind telling me what colour you used on the spinner?

 

Unfortunately I can not remember exact formula as I have used some remainder green colour from other builds which I mixed with the new fresh colours to get right tint.  What I can generally say is, it was Tamiya mix of green XF-5 as base with addition blue X14, white, yellow XF-3.
