Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Hurricane IIc
is available online from Squadron.com




Here is my 1/48 scale Hawker Hurricane Mk. IIc by Hasegawa. This model was built almost straight from the box to represent serial number Z3894 of No. 3 Squadron, RAF.

This is a marvellous kit, especially the cockpit and its tubular framework which is a good representation of the real aircraft. The only extras used were a Falcon caopy so I could represet my model with the cockpit, and a set of Reheat harnesses. Probably the only criticism I would mention is the overdone fabric ribbing detail on the rear fuselage. However, this is easily subdued with a light sanding.

Paints were Xtracolour with a final coat of Aeromaster Flat Clear applied with my Tetsors/Aztek airbrush.
