Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk.1 Tropical
I managed to finish this just before the end of 2020 so 2021 can start with a new project.
A nice kit that builds well, al is OOB except for the belts which are made from tape and wire (and I think might be a little too big).
I put a lot of new techniques into this one, I don’t usually weather my builds but as I want to include this in a diorama it would need to be in a used condition and as the desert theatre would have been harsh this plane would have been a bit battered. So I tried out chipping (using hairspray over the aluminium coat), panel lining and pastels for dust and smoke effects.
I think it turned out well and I’ll definitely be including these techniques in future builds.
