Hawker Hurricane sub collection

Recommended Posts

My first post on Britmodeller and I can't think of a better way to start!

Outstanding work and really a very moving thread to see you and your father working on the project together....Lots of great memories for you to cherish. From the first page I was hooked and have enjoyed scrolling through the pages and smiling at the results of your labors.....how your father did those fabric wings was very cool!

A salute to you and your father.....

Another beauty. Even more so because it's a Sea Hurricane, and they're under-represented in most Hurricane collections.

Great looking builds again!On 50-X,what is that 'thing' on the starboard wing?

Mike

Hi Mike

Sorry for the delay in reply you.

This Hurricane was used for meteorological duties so I guess it was an instrument related with this purposes.

Kind regards

Hello to all of you.

My father has finished the last model of our Hawker Hurricane / Sea Hurricane sub collection.

I believe that he has done a extraordinary job building these lovely models in so little time. It took me two years to select the aircrafts and find the related information for each one and my father built all of them in one year and a half.

As part of our main goal, the intention of this project was to show the history and the develpment of the Hawker Hurricane during the world war two between the limits of our collection.

We tried to make each one as best as we could, checking and double checking not only the information of our files but also asking other modelers and hystorian.

Of course you will probably find mistakes but please keep in mind that we built 109 models.

As I mentioned before, many people have helped us with project not only by sending us photos and personal information but spending time with further explanation about the history of specific aircrafts.

We do not have enough words to say: MANY THANKS.

These are some of the extrordinary peoples which have helped us with this project: Alaistor Mellor, Alec Smith, Antoni, Anthony Williams, Claudio Meaunier , Colin Shipton, Dave Charles, Dave Fleming, Dave Homewood, Dean Wingrin, Doug, Enzo Biancardi, Erik Pilawskii, Frederick Harris, Glenn R, Graham Boak, Graham Green, Ian Gazeley, IPMS Uruguay (Alvaro Manser y Alvaro Brasesco) , Javier Planells, Jerry Vernon (via Norman Malayney), Jim Bates, Jonathan Davis, Kjetil Aakra, Mr. Ragnar Ragnarsson (via Sigurjon), Dragan, Mihail Solanakis, Nick Millman, Norman malayney, Pablo Zieger, Peter Malone, Phil Cater, Ricardo Lezon, Richard Humm, Richard Owen, Robat Humphreys, Sigurjon Valsson, Sinuhe, Prof. Hahn, Stefaan Bouwer y Steve Mackenzie.

I would like to point out that without the kindly assistance of Luis Cid we could not built many of these models. He spent a lot of time doing unique decals for us.

These are the final photos

I mentioned the different sources of the previous comments when I posted the photos of each models in my previous posts. This is the reason why I am not doing the same now.

Kind regards

I am building a 1/7th scale R/C Hurricane (which I am sure won't look as good as these models) and I find this forum to be a gold mine of information. I am finishing my hurricane as a Mk1 and want to use the Black/White lower surface scheme however can anyone tell me which is the best paint match for the "white".

Thanks

Santiago,

As a Hurricane fan myself you and your father are to be congratulated on producing such a brilliant collection as a wonderful tribute to such a great plane-amazing and well done!

A couple of questions,

What colour did you use for the 'orange' radar calibration plane?

Have you built the last Hurricane,that was turned into a racer and painted blue with gold (I think) markings?If so,what colour blue?

Mike

That is one amazing collection there, looks absolutely brilliant with the huge fleet all lined up - must take up quite a bit of room! :goodjob:

Theres been quite a few schemes being built here that I would like to try out for myself too

Anything else on the Sub-collection list? All the Spitfires perhaps? :D

Many thanks for your kindly comment. Yes, but so far we have enough space in our displays cabinets (not for long unfortunately).

To be honest, we did the Spitfire sub collection (115 models) but it was done by my father many years ago and we should add at least 10 to 15 more spitfire in the future.

So far we are woiking on the Lysander series and then the Hotspur / Horsa series and probably after that the P47 series.

Here are our some of our previous sub collections (not all of them).

In order to give you an idea about our whole collection, please find the following articles published in IPMS Stockholm magazine regarding our previous sub collections.

One of the most amazing bodies of work in the hobby. I've followed you guys since the IPMS-Stockholm days and never fail to be impressed. Glad to hear you're tackling P-47s in the near future. While there are of course lots of camo variations, the big attraction with P-47s is all that nose art. Have you projected how many total models you'll be doing in that series? Whatever it is, I'll be watching gratefully!

Hi Mike

Many thanks for your kindly comments and I am glad that you like the final result of this project.

I will ask my father about the color used for the radar calibration plane and revert with you.

No, we did not buil the blue one since it is our of the limits of our collection

Kind regard

Hi Kevin

Many thanks for your kindly commnets regarding our models.

Yes, right now we are working on the Lysander series. I am also investigating about the Hotspur and I will probably start with the P47 soon. Actually I have reading all the information we have twice.

Please keep in mind that we use to ask our friend Luis who makes the decals for us only the nose art related with the Argentine pilots.

I guess that we will do aprox. 10 to 15 P47.

I still have to find the photos or information regarding the different trials performed by the P47 in Uk.

There is a little infomation about this subject.

Kind regards

Santiago
