    I'm back on topic with an actual WW2 plane! :shock:

    Actually, I'm pretty happy how this is going - there's probably a few tweaks to do, but so far, so good :)

    (It is an early 1940 model by the way, so things like markings, exhausts, aerials will be slightly different to a lot of pictures)

    I agree with Evan, one of my favorites. Great reputation as being easy to fly. Like that.

    Clave, is that one of the fabric winged Hurricanes. I think they were changing over to metal wings around this time. Just curious if it affects the drawing.

    Great work, as always.

    It seems they changed over to metal-covered wings quite early on, and even retrofitted some of the first Mk1s with metal wings... I haven't seen any difference in the pictures I've looked at though....

    The big step is the Mk2 with protruding cannon... I'm looking at those after I have done a few more Mk1s... :)

    Finnish one next!

    A brutally handsome fighter. Well done.

    :lol:

    I need an opinion on the Romanian one:

    No1? or No2?

    First one is strictly following the flag yellow as seen on the tail, the second one had a more 'Bf-109' colour for the yellow...

    More a fan of #2 for the way it probably looked in operation use. But #1 is prettier.

    Another nice set. Romanians had Hurricanes? Knew the Yugos did as well as the Belgians and Russians. But did not know the Ruminians had any sizeable numbers.

    Very few, and the supply dried up fast when they threw in their hand with the Axis...

    I prefer 1 as well but there isn't much to choose between them.

    Thanks for the feedback :)

    I'm going with something in-between those two...

    Nice Clave.To be honest the yellow colour during the a/c exploitation was getting dirty and could look like in the second profile.So both profiles look graet. :thumbleft:

    Airfix (1/72) made a kit with this decals in 1998.

    Clave, great job done. You know, I have almost a sentimental relatiinship with this one. It was the first fighter that Czech and Polish pilots flew in Great Britian in the Summer 1940 (Battle of Britian). My first skin was a Hurricane Mk.Ia. And it is my favorite plane of all time, too! 8)

    :thumbleft:

    You could be making skins!!!

    Many thanks :D

    I have not done with this yet, so I will be posting more after I have researched and pondered a few more options, including the Mk2 Night Fighter which I like a lot...8)
