Björn Svedberg I've started the work on the Italeri Hurricane. So far I'm really impressed with this little kit. Nice Details, poseable ailerons, and an engine with cowls that can be both open and closed. At the moment only the cockpit is finished.

Björn Svedberg Another update. I've finished the engine. Once again, I really like the detailing of this kit!
Björn Svedberg Thanks all of my model building buddies for the positive feedback, it means alot to me!
After a few monts of not building anything, I decided it was time to finally put an end to this project by paining the figures and the bomb loading cart that came with the kit.
Onto something different, finally!
Neuling Very beautiful diorama in every aspect. A feast for the eyes indeed.

Daniel Klink Fully agree with Neuling..
Especially the Figures looking awesome
But they are all missing the eyes..

Björn Svedberg Thank you very much, mates! You all inspire me to become a better modeler! And the feedback is very much appreciated.
@Daniel, Thank you, and yes, painting eyes in this scale is something I haven't mastered yet. I promise you that they would look far more creepy if I had tried that.

bughunter The group of pilots is absolutely impressive, very lifelike! Not just the painting, but also the postures and last but not least the photography! Awesome!

berni Hello Björn, a very good result for someone who started modeling in 2017
Andrea Morris What "wash" did you use? It looks ideal for my build.

Björn Svedberg Sorry, Dave for not answering your question earlier. I've been taking a break from model building for a couple of months.
The wash I used for the top side is a simple oil wash made with Abteilungs ABT155 Light sand and Tamiya X-20 Enamel thinner.
Good luck with your build!

Andrea Morris Actually your timing is perfect. I've just applied the clear coat so she is ready for a wash! A great build, thanks for the inspiration

bughunter Wow, I really love the cockpit details and your paint job!

Björn Svedberg Time to build something big over the Christmas and New Year holidays!
I've had this kit for quite some time, but now is the time to start building it. I just made some extra space along side the Lancaster and the Catalina where I can display it when it's finished. The kit even has some really nice figures in it!
