    I finally started to get the show on the road, and building my addition to the Group Build.
    First up, is another one of Airfix’s fantastic Hurricane Mk.I, This time a Tropical version.
    I started with the cockpit, (As the tee shirt says…) and having done that, completed the wing assembly, and I’m fitting it to the fuselage. Tail planes are basically there to provide reference for alignment . Hope to get some glue onto those wings tonight, so I can start on the seam work…what little there is…and get this girl ready for painting!

    It’s a super kit, Freddie.

    There’s been a few Hurricanes recently on the site, strange how certain subjects occasionally ‘trend’. This one looks great already, Frederick, and I think she definitely looks best in desert colours.

    It seems to go that way David, I agree, when the RAF100 group started I figured I’d wait to see what gaps I could fill historically – I have ended up with a couple of WNW kits in that vein, and boy are they popular currently (their re-releases later this year based on the aircraft of individual pilots will fly of the shelves too I’d imagine). I had a Hurri and Spit in the new Airfix plastic and was just beginning to read around the myth, legend and misconception around the RAF at Dunkirk. So I will be trying to get those two done as planes from that tract of history as my reading goes on!

    Frederick, I am so pleased that you are doing this build – it will certainly help guide my build later – and those of others. It looks just fantastic from the outset! It is an icon, essential to a group build like this, and it will look great in the desert scheme!

    The “office” certainly looks used! Beautifully done! Really fine kit, looking forward to seeing the end result.

    Nice job on the interior detailing….hope it’ll be able to be seen when done.

    Almost ready to throw paint on the Hurricane Mk.I Trop…. Been awhile since I posted and progress has been slow to put it mildly. Anyway, here are a couple of progress pictures.

    Looks good Fred………………. Our Hurricanes could be sisters………….. Mine is just about at the same construction phase as yours, but lacks the Vokes filter.

    This is a great kit is it ????

  • Frederick J Seitz III said 2 weeks ago:

    She’s a beautiful kit, Louis. One of the best I’ve built in a long time. Granted there are a few minor issues here and there, but on the whole, Airfix did a wonderful job with engineering. Plus Hurricanes are one of my favorite aircraft, so there is a little bias on my part, 😉

    Looking just about ready to come to life with the paint, Fred! Pleased there is a tropical Hurri in the current builds section! Thank you so much!
