Airfix 1/72 Hurricane/Sea Hurricane IIc
|NOTES:||New Tool Kit|
The version on this kit is a Mk IIc , that came in production in 1941 and was powered by a Merlin XX engine and had a main armament of 4 X 20mm cannons. Some airframes had an arrester hook added and served Aboard Fleet Air Arm carriers.
This is one of the new
moulds from Airfix and it does share some common traits with the spits that
preceded it. You get a basic interior with a seta, control stick, instrument
panel and a pilot. The panel lines are recessed, although a bit too deep.
Details on the fuselage looks very good for the scale and the wheel wells have some basic details too. The clear parts look a bit thick, but good enough. The only area that looks a little complicated is the arrester hook for the Sea Hurricane , because the instructions shows a fairly big area of the bottom of the fuselage that needs to be cut away.
