Recommended Posts

Finally there - just a couple of lights to add this evening.

 

Hawker Hurricane Mk.1 YB-E, P3673, flown by Sgt (later Sqn Ldr) Desmond Fopp of 17 Squadron, summer 1940 - built for his grandson, who's a best buddy of mine and I've shared a fair few aviation adventures with...

 

Build log here.

 

Colours have gone a little squiffy in some images - don't have time to correct today.

Cheers Dennis!

 

Really hoping Chris will like it - a special project and one that's caused just a little head scratching/frustration at times.

superior work! Superior masking and such. Nice to see a bit of constrained weathering but just full on with expert livery delivery! love the subtle panel lines. the hurricane is a somewhat unsung hero as we all know - good to see a fine example.

Thanks for the comments and interest everyone - really appreciated! :)

 

We can be our own worst critics - and add to that a model made for someone else - plus the fact I haven't actually *finished* anything in last few years - and my modelling 'self-confidence' has been pretty low recently.

 

It feels really good to have something actually finished - and hopefully that'll put a small rocket up my modelling MoJo again...

 

I'll try and get some better pix, with more consistent colour, and post some more here at some point.

Awww - thanks again for the kind words - really appreciated as always.

 

I've decided that the next project I start *will* be something simple that I can just assemble and paint. Famous last words!  :frantic:

 

Model On dudes!  B)
