    kit airfix Hurricane

    I hope the late entry is ok. I should be able to get it done quick. I'm going to do this kit as Bader's LED v7467. Years ago I did the old Airfix 1/72 Hurricane as Willie McKnight's LEA, and this will complement it nicely. My build will be wheels up with some aftermarket decals.

    I had to do a fair amount of touch ups. I had some paint flowing , rough edges and lost some paint removing the magic masker, At first I was quite disapointed but all those years of hand painting , and a very fine brush saved me. This is only the third or forth time I have airbrushed.
