Hawker Hurricane 90th anniversary STGB - will it be the unsung hero of the Battle of the Bunfight?


Wings unlevel

Recommended Posts



2025 will mark the 90th anniversary of the first flight of the Hawker Hurricane, at Brooklands on 6 November 1935.


Any interest in marking the milestone and in celebrating the Hurricane with a STGB? Think of all those beautiful Arma Hobby Hurricanes that can get built!

 

I am happy to host, but if there any Hurricane experts and aficionados that are particularly keen I’d be happy to defer to you and co-host.

 

At any rate let me know your interest and I’ll start a list.

 

Gerard

Yes! Excellent idea Gerard. Let's go for it.

Thanks Col, always good to get early endorsement from a BM elderstatesman! 🤣

Oh the dilemma - I've vouched my Hurricane to To the Few GB - with no alternates lurking in my stash.

If you solve the dilemma we’ll be here for you!

Given that my profile picture is of my dad sitting in a Hurricane cockpit (RAF Maiduguri 1944/45), he was ground crew with 1560 Met Flight. I feel duty bound to take part, so count me in.

Counted and welcome, JB, hope you can build a tribute to your Dad.

I will need to build R.S.S.Tuck’s IIc at some point. I want to convert another IIc to a IId. I wouldn't mind doing a Sea Hurricane or SEAC hurricane.  

Great choices, Dennis, welcome.

Just now, zegeye said:

I'm in

And counted, welcome aboard.

There is a way to solve this problem Tim ;) :innocent:

Yes, and I've got a pretty good history of Hurricane models from a 2-blade pre-war   thru to a IID with 40mm, and Sea Hurris.

Just missing a rocket projectile Hurricane, single overall colour  -  so I know what to look for.

Some AZ kits added to my wishlist.

My absolute favourite WW2 type (despite the plethora of completed Spitfires in the cabinet), so I will break my own rule and put my hand up for this GB. Add me to the list, old bean!

 

Now, all I have to do is decide which kit to build...

It's all Hurri up and wait (until 2025) again. Those of the British green-skin persuasion will identify!!

 

I'd love to do a Rag Wing with you in 1/48. Got a choice between Classic Airframes and a Hasegawa with an MDC conversion.  I'm sure it will be the conversion as I never seem to take the path of least resistance!

At least you’ll have plenty of time to plan and decide what to build! It will be Arma for me I reckon…. But in the meantime, welcome aboard to another fellow storm chaser…
