Roland Sachsenhofer Being "very short run" I expect this project to be a rather complex build.... But the kit is very nice for that and well equipped with etched and resin parts. I am so happy there is a Sea Hurricane Mk II in 1:32!
Fly prepares a lot of modelling fun, that´s for sure....

Lex Jassies The start looks promising. Hope you have a lot of fun
Dieter Bihlmaier Den Bausatz habe ich auch noch auf dem Schrank. Ich bin mal gespannt, wie sich die Hurri bauen lässt.

Roland Sachsenhofer Helllo mates! I wish you a happy New Year!
I would like to show you the first modeling activity 2017: cutting the fuselage open for the resin made adaption of the Sea Hurricanes arrester hook. Hope that will look good one day

Holger Kranich Happy new year to ya all! Reserve me a seat, Roland. For this interesting build, i´m back in a few minutes with beer and Popcorn.
Roland Sachsenhofer Some "insights" into the recently closed fuselage: after assembly of all these struts and details the cockpit does look not too bad-even more when the fuselage had been closed and any possible imperfections have been successfully lost in the darkness of the cockpit
Fit of the plastic parts is great by the way.

Roland Sachsenhofer A few pictures of the Sea Hurricane slowly gaining shape: resin and etched parts are great, the plastic parts are a little bit on the brittle side. The resin arrestor-hook was cemented in with Cyanacrylat, than sanded to a smooth surface.
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you both mates!
A few steps forward to a finished Sea Hurricane: all the surfaces have been painted and shaded to an appropriate glance. To be honest, there is not much left to do. I hope I can assemble all the parts like canopy, prop, landing gear etc. in the next few days.

Roland Sachsenhofer Finished at last! That was an truly demanding kit- one of the last challenges was the fixing of the canopy, being much too small to fit on the Hurris back- but it was worth the efforts. I am really happy to have had the chance to prove my skills on a Sea Hurricane II in 1:32. Thank you Fly!
