Looks great Simon, Are the Italeri kits any good?

I find the Italeri kits really nice, and number 93 comes with inbox IAC markings.
Also, they have the I, IB, IIc and tropical kits, so with masks etc. you can reuse them

Nice Hurricanes and always nice to see IAC stuff. Well done.

Gotta ask about the dual colour spinner. I haven't seen this before. Its been awhile since I looked into IAC Hurricames but I am curious if this is personal choice to finish it this way or wether there is a photo you used to make the colour call.

Regards
Brian

Hi Brian,
It is tenuous - but I found this pic Image

I liked it as it was a bit different -
I have a Hurricane Mk I with a black spinner
My Seafire will have a red spinner - so for a bit of variety, I went with this.
It was troublesome, took a few go's but I was very happy with the final result

A lot of info on Britmodler forum

Thanks for the links. The discussion about the rear fuselage colours are interesting as well.
Will have to dig out my Hasegawa Mk II and get on with it
Thanks
