    Now, having scored the 1/48 Hasegawa Hurricane Mk. IV, I've got three birds on the list of possibilities...

    [​IMG]

    First is:
    LF113, which is a Mk. IV Trop, she's armed with 40mm cannons, flying with No. 20 Squadron in India, involved in attacks on Japanese road traffic in Burma in 10/44.

    Second is:
    KZ553, also a Mk. IV Trop, same again, armed with 40mm cannons. This bird is flying with No. 6 Squadron in Italy and Grottaglie, taking part in anti tank missions in support of the 8th Army, 01/44 and is coded JV-B...

    The third one and the one that I'm quite tempted to do is:
    KZ378, this is a rocket armed Mk. IV, flying with No. 184 Squadron, flying rocket attacks on coastal shipping from Manston. She's missing after shipping strike off the Dutch coast on the 28/06/43 and she was coded BR-V...
    Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the pilot..

    Now, question is.....can I 'borrow' the rockets, with the blast plate from a Typhoon, or if possible, use a resin replacement?

    Can you use the blast plate from the Beaufighter on the Mk. IV Hurricane?

    Jan, I'm still in camp but I believe I still have the P.E. blast plates from my Hobbycraft Hurricane. I get home Tuesday night and if you haven't found a solution let me know.
