  1. Looks like it stood the test of time well, Allan. đŸ™‚

  2. Allan, was that the only one the RAAF had in Australia? A pattern aircraft, then they decided not to build them under license?
    Nice job on her, looks the part.

    • Thanks Bernard, this was near new when presented to Australia by Britain in 1941 flown by the CFS for fund raising displays and pilot familiarisation, 2 Com Flt in support of G suit development by Prof Frank Cotton of Sydney Uni’ in 1942, with 2 OTU, 1 Com Unit and CFS from 1943 to 1946.

  3. Another great built Allan. Very nice in this scale. I like the Hurricane as one of my favorites and finishing one in 1:48 from Airfix at this moment.

  4. Excellant work as usual Allan. Nice to see the older molds built.
