Arna 1/72 Hurricane MK1 trop...RAAF

Postby oz rb fan » Tue May 05, 2020 10:30 pm

my current project a new Arma models MK1 Trop Hurricane...the kit decals include two of the markings for V7476 that made it to Australia in 1941..i've decided on the late scheme of silver dope and bare metal.

it has heaps of detail out of box and this is the more basic kit.

it goes together really well with the minimum of fuss and almost no bog.
it's painted with Tamiya AS12 and alcad Duraluminium
