Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I

I’ve added some more details to the cockpit, I just need to add the rudder pedals and I can get it painted. Although Eduard supply seatbelts in the Zoom set I’ve ordered some from HGW as these are actually made of fabric and will conform to the seat better, etch belts are too stiff (unless you anneal them over an open flame first);

I could go wild with the detail but for what you will be able to see I think there’s enough in there. I did want to keep the floor and cockpit sides separate for painting but due to the way Airfix have designed it I had to glue it all together.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
