  1. This Hurricane is very nice looking. I don't ever recall seeing one of them wearing these markings before. That makes it stand out... Toss in the spectacular paint work and attention to the small details, such as the 5 spoke wheels and early spinner, and you have another winner on your shelf !

    Well done my friend.


  2. Very nice - those markings are very striking.

  3. I agree, those markings make the Hurricane stand out.

  4. I have never seen a Romanian Hurricane before let alone one with Mickey on it. Well done.

  5. Great subject and a wonderful outcome, very well done!
