to exhaustion….

Missed Battle of Britain Day by one, but I dredged up this OLD build, and attempt to create a scene. Hasegawa 1/48 Hurricane, 303 (Polish) squadron decals. Wow 75 years, salute to all who persevered through it, military and civilian.

3 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  7. Very very nice. 🙂

  8. Very good, Bill, your pictures have a nice atmosphere.

  9. Thank you guys, appreciate the praise. September 27 coming up, 75 years since the last big daylight raid (Walhalla). 303 claimed 10 destroyed, for 2 pilots killed. The costs were always high.

  10. Great rendition of a battle weary pilot and plane nice job

  11. Timely post and subject. Well done!
    Did you modify the figure from something available, or did it come like that?
    I remember reading someplace that one of the pilots said that at one point, he would wake himself up, yelling in his interrupted sleep. There’s that picture of Brian Lane, and his eyes have circles around them that are real noticeable. Looks “beat”, as we used to say.
    Combat takes a toll.
