Hawker Hurricane Mk.I in 1/48 from Italeri.

This model represents a Hurricane Mk.I in October 1940. Along with the Sea Hurricane this kit is a new release from Italeri. I found it a fairly straight forward build although the fit of the leading edge of the wing roots required a bit of filler & I replaced the canopy wit a vac-form item from Falcon which has finer detail. There are several choices for the markings & two spinner/propellor combinations. All told I’m fairly happy with it. Murphy’s law strikes again though; Airfix has just brought out their Mk.I & it looks absolutely superb, so maybe that will be next. We’ll see……
