Hawker Hurricane by NOBI

Something of a "relax" type of model.I think this is one of the older designs by NOBI since it's done quite a bit different than newer ones.Proportions are off,some shapes are off but model falls together with zero fuss or issues and model looks the part.I particularly like colors of this Hurricane-Those are very close to perfect RAF colors of that period,Polish PK-K 315 Squadron codes are added bonus.Laser printer changed them a bit,sunshine also does it's trick so colors on pictures are a little different from what they are in the kit.

Cool looking,easy model.

BTW-kit cover says it's 1:48 scale-it feels fair bit larger.

Nice Hurricane B. While it's generally known that laser printing tends to darken colours, I find with Thaipaperwork models laser printing can alter some colours as well. They print on inkjet ok though. There's some technical explanation for this I guess.

The only reason I use laser printer is because I have access to one for free.Nothing beats "free".

Totally agree. Same boat that I'm in.

Great build of a real classic. My father saw a fair amount of "Hurribombers" during his time in Burma during WWII.

This was one of the first 1/100 lits I built. Never looked back after that.
