Hurricane Mk I, France 1940.


Recommended Posts

Not the most unusual subject to be presented here, of course, but here's another little Airfix Hurri.  It's built out of the box in 85 Sqn markings with just some seat straps added. I've done a few of these now, and better options are available in this scale, so this will be the last - I think... 😀

It looks great!  I love the paint work.

 

Many thanks to all!

 

I used Tamiya XF-81 RAF Dark Green 2 and Mr Hobby H72 Dark Earth for the camo, which I believe gives a reasonably accurate representation. Can't remember what I used for the 615 Sqn Hurri in the last photo above, but I'm not sure the green is quite right.

I'm very envious of the neatness and precision evident from your photos.

Viewing your model conjures images of the early scenes of the BoB Movie!

Excellent!

Thanks! Yes, that part of the film was in my mind too:

 

"Don't ever let me see you doing a victory roll over my airfield again."
