The Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIc is my next build, and it will be completed in the SEAC scheme.
This is a new tool kit released in 2010. The Mk.IIc had not previously been done by Airfix although other marks of the Hurricane had been in the Airfix range for many years. The plastic bits consist of 3 sprues of grey parts protected in a sprue square which is customary on these new tool kits. The clear parts are sealed in a separate clear plastic bag.
When I opened the box after recovering it from my stash I realised that I had started this kit a couple of years ago when I was still using enamels and brushes and I was experimenting with panel washes, and that is afar as i got! However I don't think the pre-painted port wing will effect this build.
2 decal options are included for the Huricane Mk.IIc and an option for a Sea Hurricane Mk.IIc. My build will be Option A, a Hurricane from No.34 Sqn RAF South East Asia Command Nov 1943.
The build started with the lower wing section and the construction of some minor cockpit detail.
After some Interior Grey/Green was sprayed on I decided to start painting the pilot from the kit. He looks like a pretty generic Airfix WW2 pilot and rather than waste time painting just 1 pilot I took another pilot from my spares box to be painted at the same time. The second pilot was from a new tool Spitfire Mk.1.
