Hawker Hurricane

Come see my IIc at sea.

Are you tired of this one yet? This is my interpretation of the ubiquitous 'Nicki,' a Sea Hurricane Mk.IIc that served aboard the escort carrier HMS Nairana during '44. Its colors and composition, or at least its squadron, has been the [...]

Airfix 1/48 Hawker Hurricane Mk1

Hey fellow modelers. With great excitement I am proud to bring you my latest and 3rd build. This project was one of three Xmas gifts received from my daughter. I'm a lucky guy 🙂 I started the build somewhere in the Twighlight zone [...]

My 2023 Builds

It has been a while since my last post so I figured I better get my wheels rolling again. A little late on posting my builds from 2023 but here they are. A little different year for me but happy with the results. I had my usual fun [...]

Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk.1 1:48 scale

This is my most recent build and my first post to this site. I think my skills have improved greatly thanks to my local IPMS chapter. I don't think any of my previous airplanes were good enough to show so I am proud of this build. I hope [...]

Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk.1 1/72

I have wanted to build this kit for quite some time. There’s some nice examples of this kit on this site. I used only AK Interactive acrylics for this one- their dark brown/green are much nicer than Ammo Mig‘s, tbh. Some panel line [...]

Hawker Hurricane Mk.I Tropical (Airfix 1:48)

This kit was completed as the aircraft flown by Sergeant Pilot FH Dean of No. 274 Squadron RAF at Sidi Barrani, Egypt in 1941 with the assistance of Geoff Coughlin's excellent series of videos on YouTube. The aircraft depicted, P2638, had [...]

"Night Reaper": a daring Czech pilot as a nighthawk

What must it have sounded like when Kuttelwascher's British superiors first tried to pronounce his name? Unfamiliar even to German ears, Karel's family name must have been a hard nut to crack for English-speaking tongues. Pragmatically, it [...]

Arma Hobby 1/72 Hurricane MkI Tropical

Arma Hobby, 1/72. It doesn't contain any resin or etch, so it's a little disappointing, compared to the "Expert" variant, but still very enjoyable to build. Once again the fit of all the parts is just about perfect. I know that [...]

1/48 SAAF Hawker Hurricane

This Hasegawa kit was a gift to me from my friend , Morné @mornem. He shipped it to me here in Oklahoma from South Africa…. so this is really a South African Hurricane ! I used my airbrush, Tamiya paints, and AML paint masks to paint [...]

Oh the Humanity! A 1 1/2 year hurricane.

The disaster was unexpected, power full machines thrown about with disregard. It was the 1 1/2 year old Hurricane Anthony. Don't let your eyes off of one! Repairs are already underway.
