Description

 

This is the 1/48 scale Hurricane IID from Hasegawa.

It doesn't seem a very popular subject according to HyperScale's Gallery. This is strange, because it is a very nice kit and the Hawker fighter comes in no less than 12 boxings by Hasegawa.

I build my Hurricane straight from the box, and only added an RAF pilot from a Belgian company.

Paint used were only Tamiya acrylics thinned with Spiritus. For the camouflage masking, I used my one year old son's colour-clay. The one that never hardens. I rolled it in very long rolls and sprayed alongside the skinny sausages so the edges would not be too sharp or to soft. I like the result.

Weathering was done with pastels, scraped with a knife to powder, and then added with a fine brush.
