Fly do a Mk I too, although perhaps perversely it only comes in Finnish and tropical boxings.

It's also a metal wing rather than a fabric one like the old PCM kit..

Oops! Forgot about that! They have quite the series now; strange they don't release a BOB boxing.

The Fly ones are not that bad, but we could use a new Mk.I...

 

Gotta disagree Ray, the Fly wheels are way too small and the tyres are way too big.

The PCM wheels are OK but in all 3 kits I have they are miscast (gaps in the wheel).

Roy says they'll be in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32. Someone asked about 1/24 and he said

"maybe later". They're cast from 3D masters so 1/24 shouldn't be far off.

I meant the Fly Hurricanes as a whole are not that bad, not the wheels. I don't think there is an injected plastic kit, and even many resin kits, out there that don't benefit from AM wheels. When a manufacturer, such as Barracuda or Halberds or CMK or Aires or AMS takes the time to do a wheel right with all the correct dimensions, markings, manufacturers logos, etc, it makes a big difference.
