    Anyone built a Trumpeter Hurricane? I know they're supposed to be good in the detail department, but they are a bit highly priced, and is it accurate? I'll admit I've never built a Trumpeter kit (yet), but I've seen so many reports of inaccurate shape of major areas, it's rather off-putting. When I first joined this forum, I enquired about their 1/32nd scale P51B, which was around £30 then, but is now nearer £50 (!!). But, after reading a build review, and especially after seeing one built, I didn't bother getting the kit - the inaccuracy in overall shape was actually visible, even in photographs !
