These have been a long time coming, they have sat on the bench for over a year in primer then the other day while waiting for paint to dry on another project I decided to add some paint next thing I have two finished Hurricanes.
Those that know me will of course not be surprised that they are 1/144, these are the Sweet 'Fabric wing' Mk.I.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.







I thought I would never say this but I think I've fallen in love with Hurricane's

I've seen these in the flesh, and they look even better than the photo's.

They are fantastic.

Keep up the good work

Hi Lucky.
Im amazed twice here, not only because of the size of the tiny birds that you build so well, but that these could sit on your workbench at the primer stage for so long without you finishing them!
Were they hidden under a postage stamp?
Lovely job!

Thanks all.

Nige, you'll be amazed at whats hides on the bench awaiting the right moment or mood. At this moment there is a Tornado IDS, Ju-87, Mosquito B35, Macchi 202 and a Jap Betty all in 1/144 plus a Me262 in 1/72 but for some reason after starting them I just can not find that something that see's them finished.
The problem with the Tornado is simple, its down to the decals, it was being built as an Italian IDS but the decal roundals and sqdn flash are unusable (look like they were printed on a old dot matrix printer) and without available replacements there is no point going further.
The Macchi has no canopy so that is a big hurdle.

The others I don't know, just lost interest.

Now to get those P-51's and F-4F Phantom done in 1/144 of course.

Ciao
