    as with Andy I will be doing Hurricane Mk I LE-A flown by F/O Willie McKNight of 242 Sqdn, though mine will depict it as it was 30 August 1940 as shown in the Michael Martchenko painting shown below.

    Good stuff Karl! I'm sticking with the later scheme as I like the black port wing.

    A small window might come up on Sunday so if I can get my Canberra pictures done and a little tidying on my work bench, building will start

    ok started both my entries for this GB.

    the cockpit frames were quickly brushed with Vallejo intermediate green mixed with some neutral grey (not enough grey it seems)

    i didnt like the PE instrument panel so i just used the decal for both !

    once closed up in the fuselage the rough parts of the paintwork wont be seen so they will do for me.
