    Tend to agree me old mate, in reality it was the Hurricane that bore the brunt during the BoB but has been out shadowed by the Spit ever since.

    I read Reach for the Sky as a youngster and was always intrigued by the Bader's exploits. Looking forward to this one!

    Cheers guys.

    John, I saw the movie and couldn't believe it was based on a real person, he has been a hero of mine since I was about 6years old

    as in my other hurricane thread both cockpits were done with Vallejo paints, the green is a bit bright but as it is now assembled it will do for me and will look good enough once closed up in the fuselage.

    same pics as the other thread, i will seperate the builds in the next update.

    It is a bit green, but looks the biz mate. Nice detail in the new Airfix kit too.
