Last 2020 Project: Hawker Hurricane Mk II b 1/72 ARMA Hobby
My last completed build of 2020 (finished on 12/31).
I can’t say enough about ARMA kits in general and this one in particular. Meticulous detail–better than some larger scale kits by other brands. High quality plastic, comparable to Tamiya and Eduard; fine panel lines, near perfect fit, very thin canopy parts. Plenty of extras–PE, open and closed canopies, painting masks, decals and color plates for 7 liveries (I chose Mk. IIb trop, 274 Squadron Egypt & Libya, November 1942), wings and armaments for both B and C models, online resources: documentary video, camouflage pattern template.
This was an enjoyable project with a great subject–the underappreciated Hawker Hurricane (an unsung hero of BoB). I built the B version sporting 12 wing-mounted 30 calibers. I painted the exterior with AK Interactive paint, RAF colors.
