Hawker Hurricane: King´s Cup 1950
This is a very special Hurricane: the last to have been produced, one of the last still flying, a film star... and it played its role in a great love that should not be...
I m using the Hasegawa kit of this racing Hurricane to reproduce its elegant dark blue and gold appearance. It was thought as a quick and refreshing project beside the "Tunnan" triple, but it developed its own challenges. One of it has been to get the all over blue vivid enough for representing a real aircraft. Therefore I sanded two or three times the painted surfaces. At least yesterday the decals could have been applied. This is the recent condition you can see on the last pictures.
