Another plane from my small (but growing) "Brit" collection is the first Hurricane I build. It´s the very old REVELL kit, and it was a lot of...ahhh...fun?...not only because it was the first kit where I tried a little scribing but also the construction of the "Hurri"-fuselage is very complex because it has inside the normal ribs-and-stringer-construction a metal-tube frame, visible in the 5ocklock-detail shot. The nose art named "kicked Hitler´ass" is handpainted, rest build OOB.
