  1. Nice build, nice photography...just plain "nice".

  2. Thanks Craig 🙂

  3. Awesome work Bernard. I have been thinking about getting this one myself. Now where did I put my Sea Hurricane?

  4. It's kind of novelty? I have not heard that Tamiya released a Hurricane.

  5. I've always preferred the Hurricane to the Spitfire, it somehow looks more like a fighter aircraft. You've done a good job with this one, like Craig says, just plain nice all round.

  6. Bernard,
    This is absolutely gorgeous. I really like what you have done with this.
