This is my 1/72 Revell Hawker Hurricane IIc.

After many years of languishing in my stash, I came across a Xtradecal Sheet "D-Day Anniversary Pt.1 (X72194)" that contains markings for a Hurricane with D-Day stripes - that's what I had been waiting for. Of course, this build is horribly late for that mentioned anniversary.

By summer 1944, the Hurricane was already outdated and withdrawn from frontline service.

However, a number of aircraft, still retaining their armament, served with 1697 Air Letter Despatch Service. They carried mail in the underwing pods from forward airfields in France to England.

Some info about 1697 flight can be found here:

306 Sqdn Hurricane Mk I. Hasegawa kit with corrected resin spinner ad prop blades from Roy Sutherland. Exhaust glare shields were made from plastic card, codes were from Techmod. That's about all I remember about this one...

Chuck, that is lovely. I assume that is the Hasegawa kit?

Yes it is Hasegawa. As others have noted, the fabric detail on the fuselage is overdone; which is highlighted by the natural outdoor lighting. I still like the kit, though.

Thanks for the kind words.

I like it too Chuck. I have a couple in the stash, must build them some day, despite their faults, which I am too ignorant to see.

That's a real beauty, Hunter. Are those Iliad decals?

I'm doing one of those kits right now. I have two of the Iliad sheets and I'm going to do 313. At least I was going to. A few days ago, as I was about to fill a couple small divots in the carb intake, it pinged off into another dimension. I've searched the hobby room high and low, but no joy. I'm going down to Edmonton in a couple weeks, so hopefully I can get a couple more Airfix Hurricanes there. I need another one to go with the Alleycat metal wing I bought.

Thanks, Chris. The decals are entirely from the spares box, and are not Iliad's.
Just to let you know, the Alleycat tin wing is about as direct replacement for the Airfix wing as a size 12 soccer shoe is on Cinderella. Expect a good deal of fiddling and frustration.
Thanks for your comment.
