Hasegawa’s Hurricane IIc in 1/48 scale by Tony Prince.

May 17, 2014 · in Aviation · · 12 · 1.9K

A very nice model kit; the second one I've built of 's. Straight out of the box except for the canopy. The RAF in the CBI theatre seems to be largely forgotten & had to soldier on with outdated equipment long after more modern fighters were introduced into Europe & the Mediterranean. Hurricanes in Burma & India were worked hard, but did the job until Spitfires & Thunderbolts arrived. This is my small tribute to the men who flew them.

For those who like bases, I've used Woodland Scenics materials & resin figures to dress it up a bit. Paints are Gunze. Clear matt finish is Polyscale. Open canopy is a vac-form from Falcon's RAF set.

Hope you like it.
