    The 1/24 scale hurricane is a pretty basic model, it dosent have heaps of interior detail , you only put the cockpit and motor together and the fuselage goes straight together, it goes together very nicely, the one i built was the MK.1.

    I think if you want something nice you have to get "dirty" yourself.There is no possibility to avoid it.

    I'm afraid to touch it! Mistakes at 1:72 I can hide but that size would be magnified! freaking box is huge!

    Catch, you've built this one?

    I only re-started building models again about 9 years ago after a 25 year lay-off. I've noticed I'm not as - creative? - as I was when I was younger. lost a lot of skills. This thing is intimidating. I'm waiting until I get better then try. But like Erich said, I have no idea where to put it once finished. I already have a large Stuka and Muncheburg's Bf 109 I think in 1:24 sitting in my living room. They were already pre-made so no building.

    Do they sell putty by the gallon?

    But I'm with Wayne.:D
    As far as the putty is concerned it is not offered by the gallon but by kilograms :lol: . Fortunately for the model one small tube of Tamya putty and some sandpaper 1000 and 1500 grade will be enough, I think.:D
