This is a nice little kit. The Belgium markings offer a nice change of pace to RAF markings and the decals settle down nicely under some Mr Mark decal fluid. I had read of some issues fitting the fuselage to the wing, but some clamping solved any problem there and the fit is actually quite good. I've been buying quite a few of these new Airfix kits and I'm quite pleased with them.

Nicely done.  :goodjob:  

 

You may want to check out the film The Flemish Farm, which basically tells of the escape from Belgium, and the continuing fight under RAF command, of the a Belgian Hurricane unit.  (Can't say too much, I don't want to do spoilers.)
