Hurricane Mk.I Belgian, Airfix 1/72


Recommended Posts

Nice kit, easy to build. Correct resin wheels are made by CMK and a PE gunsight is by Eduard. Gunze paints on top, Tamiya TS 30 Silver Leaf on the bottom /decanted and applied using an airbrush/. Gunze varnish, some oils and Tamiya weathering sets.

Thank for looking.

Superb! This is a really inspiring build.

 

Have you got any background info on this specific aircraft?

 

Cheers,

Having build this kit myself i can only say you took it to the next level!! excellent paint job and finish.

I found it a very enjoyable build, and a great kit overall, not to mention the Belgian decal option. Just to bad Airfix only included the later four spoke wheels rather than the iconic 5 spoke ones that are accurate. In my case Marabu's set of photo etch spitfire rims came to the rescue.

 

very inspiring!

just finished this one in RAF colours, but after seeing your beautiful model i will have to purchase another and do this scheme. Looks lovely.

Thank you guys. I will try to make more photos at the end of the week (the camera battery went flat and I had no time to look for the replacement).

As far as I know this particular plane served with No. 2 "Thistle" squadron" - the oldest fighter unit in the Belgian Air Force. It was the second squadron in the first group of the second regiment so it was numbered "2/I/2 Aé".

This Hurricane was destroyed during a German attack at Schaffen airfield (Diest) on May 10, 1940.
