  4. Excellent work on this tiny scaled Hurricane, Alistair @alistairfgauld
    She looks much bigger with this quality work, especially the weathering.

  5. I must have built an Airfix 1/72 Hurricane 60 odd years ago, but I don’t suppose it compared to this one, and I’ve no idea what happened to it, probably destroyed when I tried to fly it out of my bedroom window.
    Beautiful result on this, Alastair.
