Nice!

 

I am looking forward to the Hurri announced by Revell and how will they relate to each other.


@Jaro Yes, that will be interesting to see! Hope it's not full of inaccuracies like there Spitfire kits....

Terrific work Iain, one point which might be of interest, the kit has two vents just above the wing root behind the cockpit, those were introduced to aircraft serving in the Middle and Far East, though not all

The Sea Hurricanes didn't have them either

nor the IIC's in Europe

The surface detail on the Fly Hurricanes is outstanding, really looking forward to seeing it under some paint.

@Kagemusha Mine is an England based bird, so less work for me then!:lol:
Yes, the surface detail is really great! I've had to take extra care in not sanding off that marvelous detail. I also can't wait to get her painted, show off that detail.

Close, but no cigar! The kit has the vents, which you can see above the black panel on the wing root in the photo below, whereas the aircraft you're depicting doesn't, so they really require removing.

Does anyone have an idea/pic of where the IFF antenna exited the fuselage on the Hurricane? And where the lead-ins were situated on the horizontal stab leading edge? Thanks!

  • IainM changed the title to 1/32 Fly Hurricane Mk. 2C Night Fighter (Primer time!)

Made some progress.....
Got the first primer coat down, some touch-ups to do, but generally happy with the result. Not as much as I thought I'd have to do.
Have to rescribe some detail now and restore some rivet detail where the joins are, but at least things are getting along.

@Kagemusha you'll be happy to see those vents below the cockpit are gone! :lol:

She's not a small bird at all......quite a bit larger than the 109 I'm building. I was quite surprised!

Quite a decent set of resin tyres supplied with the kit!

I think instead of my usual black-basing, I'll start by using this primer as the base and build up effects on it. That should give some nice tonal/distressing/fading effects when I put on the black scheme

Nice Iain.  The wheels from the Fly kit are off quite a bit in diameter of both the wheel and the tyre.

Barracuda has a nice set that includes the up locks. I know because I've re-started my PCM kit that

was shelved for the 109D. Those little up lock parts are quite fiddely as one might imagine but I

managed to get them installed.

Looking mighty fine Iain, good to see the vents gone, they were the first thing I saw, and something I had no control over.

The primer step is always a great one to see how it' all coming together.  It looks really good, can't wait for paint.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments! Much appreciated!
I think I will indeed source myself a set of Roy's wheels for the kit! Thanks @MikeMaben for the heads-up!
