Revell 1/32 Hurricane Mk IIb with Grey Matter Conversion

By Tony O'Toole

This is the re-released old Revell Hurricane kit converted into a Mk.IIb using the Grey Matter Resin conversion set.

The model represents BD897/WG-M which was flown by Sqn. Ldr. Billy Drake`s aircraft when he was CO of 128 Sqn. based at Hastings in Sierra Leone, West Africa during 1941-42 and he downed a Vichy French Maryland flying this aircraft.

Finished with Aeromaster acrylics (yes I know, rare...cheers again Andy!) with Finnish Light Blue representing RAF Sky Blue and the nose art was hand painted onto the model...see the build thread! I had originally applied the wrong serial however but have now changed it.

Anyway enough is the model, but it originally had the wrong serial, So the serial was changed from BD776 (WG-F) to the correct BD897 (WF-M):
