Thank you for your comments. According to the instructions, some Hurricanes at the Middle East were painted with an “Italian” camouflage on the wing leading edge and nose, to confuse their opponents when approaching. To be honest, I don't know how accurate is this information, but I really like this camo!!!

Very nice job Bill! If I may ask, what Vallejo colors did you use for the Dark Earth and Middlestone?
