Hurricane IIC

Recommended Posts

After long deliberations, the Trumpeter Hurri IIc it is...

 

I had originally thought to do the Beaufighter, but with the demands I have on my time right now I decided to go with a more "OOB" type experience and this one fills the bill.

 

Plus, nobody seems to be doing a Hurricane yet! :)

 

I will either do Western Desert or a Far East scheme, depending on how I feel when I have to decide which scheme to go with.

HI Can't wait to see you get started on that kit. I have always liked the Hurricane.

 

Texas :P :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Thanks for all the encouraging words! I'll post pix as soon as I have a major sub-assembly completed. Still at the basic painting the cockpit/interior stage--lots of that RAF interior green!

An early picture of the cockpit (such as I've managed). Still needs a bit of touching up on the seat, but I figured better sooner a picture than later!

Looking good Tim!

Might be too soon but do you already have an idea on the sheme?

Cheers,

Loic

 

Yes. I'm leaning toward something like this:

or the same scheme but with dark sea grey instead of the brown. Sources I have indicate that Far Eastern theater a/c arrived with green and grey, but were overpainted with the earth brown.

 

The important thing is thanks to Montex I have what I need to do the small SEAC roundels!

Nice work Tim. That cockpit is looking really good. I especially like the instrument panel.

Thanks. It was pretty much OOB apart from gluing some of my homemade data plates onto it. I also drilled out the instrument faces in the panel as I thought they're too thick as molded and I wanted the actual instrument faces to stand out a bit.

 

Next up, the engine...
