I have been meaning to build this kit for a while and this group build is a great opportunity. Of WWII aircraft, the hurricane is my favourite. I have a few other projects I need to clean up before I can move onto to this, but I figured I would state my intent.

Thanks for reading.

Oh yeah very nice kit - Got to love a tank buster with Big Guns!!!!! :thumbsup:

 

I really enjoyed building this one - if Photosuckit is still working you can take a look at my efforts in the signature.

Some bits to watch for biggest one for me is I would strengthen the bottom seam from the wing back as I found the plastic a bit flimsy and I kept cracking the seam which is a real pain.

Enjoy and looking forward to seeing how it goes,

 

Happy Days - Taff :D

Another seam I had fun with is where the part of the wing that forms one piece of the gear bay joins the roof of the gear bay, kept breaking that one when sanding to eliminate an eneven seam. Eventually added some strength to the top side with some plasticard and epoxy. Great kit to build though and the Trumpeter etch set available separately adds a lot to the cockpit.
