Revell 1/32 Hawker Hurricane

By Ulrich Schütt

This is the re-re-re-box of the re-re-re-re-released of the old Revell Hurricane, which was first released in ’67. (I have build one too in my younger years, late ‘80s…)

Considering its age it was a nice kit. Fit was good, loads of rivets though.

I wanted to build a “Phoney-war” / Battle of France Hurricane so I bought a resin “early” propellor and resin wheels, because the kit’s wheels were crap. Aftermarket decals for the roundels on the side and bottomside of the wings. Scratchbuild a gunsight and the wheelbay.

Everything is sprayed or painted with Revell enamels, colours used according to the instructions. Mud on wheels, exhaust stains are Revell enamels. Gun soot is done with Tamiya weathering pastels.
