Hurricane






Here are some images of Trumpeter Models 1/24 scale Hawker Hurricane MK II C Trop. This is typical Trumpeter quality except for one thing. The the seat sits to high in the cockpit and as a result the canopy will not slide properly into position so one will have to adjustments accordingly. In case anyone is curious the paints I always use on all my models are Testors Model Master paints mainly as well as Tamiya acrylics and the Tamiya weathering system although I want to try pastels as there would be a wider variety of colour's as well I suspect much cheaper. Not many people know this but do you realize that model paints are the most expensive paints in the world? Think about it a 1/2 fluid ounce bottle of paint usually runs you close to five bucks Cdn. HIGHWAY ROBBERY!

Nice Hurricane. I like the desert variant with the "20's" and big filter.
