This is a recent club challenge build of a Pegasus snap-together kit in 1/48th scale. I am surprised that a $10 kit designed for beginners would have wheel well and cockpit detail — chunky, yes, but respectable nonetheless. I decided to paint mine in a rather unique Italian desert scheme. This Hawker Hurricane was designed in England, licence built in Yugoslavia, captured by Germany, transferred to Italy, and then finally returned to Yugoslavia at the end of the war!
I did replace the landing gear with a set of Hasegawa from the parts box, but it is otherwise out-of-the-box
