Trumpeter Hurricane Mk IIc Trop 213 sqd.
I received this kit from a friend a while back and I started it then. That was about a year or so ago. Since then I lost some pieces, had a really bad time with my skills on the pit and the engine so there it sat, in the stash awaiting for the time to do something with it. That may have been toss it or give it to somebody that has the patience with them selves that I don’t. In any case, I said what the heck and just went ahead and piddled around with it and decided to just paint it IAW the color plate included with this kit. I don’t have much history of the 213 sqd. but this scheme was applied to several aircraft and as this one is supposed to be 1944.
As for the kit I was surely surprised to see how well it went together and to tell the truth I should have checked Tom’s review first. I didn’t have many areas that didn’t fit well and it turned out to be a fun kit.
