Hallo dear LSP friends. 

 

Here is the result when we mix a Englishman with the Soviet union. A well used Hurricane in the cold landscape of Murmansk.

Some info of the fly 1/32 Hurricane kit. It is a shortrun. The fitting is quite good. Some minor errors. And please DRYFIT every part before assembly,You need sanding and grinding. This model is Out Of The Box. The only thing added is brakelines  Insignias and markings are painted with airbrush.

 

Model Factoid:

Fly Hurricane mk IIc

 

Painted with Gunze acrylics and Tamiya acrylics. All baremetal is painted with Alclad II.

 

Here is the result.

One rarely sees a Hurricane in Russian markings. Your build of a not so easy kit looks perfect. And your camo paint scheme and weathering just sets your model to a higher level. Absolutely impressive :wow:  :yahoo:

Beautifully done Sir and an unusual scheme as well. It looks great.

One thing you may want to change though. The emergency escape door on the Hurricane was not hinged like on the Spitfire. When unlatched it would be removed completely. You could display it sitting on the wing.

Cheers,
Wolf

Nice finish, however is this a historical fiction, or you based your marking on an actual photograph ? I am asking , because I have never seen Mark 2-C in VVS colours like this. Thank You

Cheers

Martin
