Great build Artur.

Artur your build is clean,tight and plays the role of the Hurricane well. One little niggle, your kit has a Rotol prop. The Rotol unit has blades made out of Jablo, a compressed wood composite. I’d shy away from chipping the prop edges with silver or gray paint. Having written that, on the whole its a great looking build. Looking forward to seeing your next build.
Point taken, Stephen, but isn’t it possible that the painted (I assume) prop could still show signs of missing paint, wooden or not?
Usually, wood is painted with a brown or tan color. Not silver or gray. I don’t know what color they primed the props with but, silver paint required that aluminum be use. Something that was in short supply once the war got going. Many manufactures switched over to those primer greens for primer.

Wood props are varnished, so that water doesn’t get into the wood and delaminate them. They are made up with layers of wood, thus the different tones in a wooden prop. I’d suspect that the usual black was painted over the varnish, to avoid reflections, as on the metal DH ones.
My guess would be that the black eroded from the wooden working edge, though I’ve never seen a photo of it.
Some props found at crash sites in Britain.

Gorgeous Hurricane! A lot of small details beautifully executed.
Artur, beautifully done, the larger scales readily show any problems up, and I don’t see any here. I agree with what Stan said. Those small details add up to a really well done whole.

Nice work. I did one of these here (I think even my first posting several years ago) – night fighter livery. A sound kit with lots of detailing opportunities.

Thank you for the kind words, I know I made mistakes but I was more focused on painting than on the details.
