Hi all,
Seen as Alan is desperate to finish an FAA build judging by the amount of kits he has entered, here is my Sea Hurricane IIc finished as NF672 of 835 Naval Air Squadron, HMS Nairana 1944.

Built OOB and painted using Halfords primer white as the base, Xtracrylics Extra Dark Sea Grey, Slate Grey and Sky with black stripes by Tamiya. Comments welcome in the build thread!

Have to say ive really enjoyed this GB, especially since ive managed to finish 6 kits for GBs in the time this ran. Seeing whats above, its been a great GB and im surprised only 1 jet, 1 spinning top and 1 turboprop.

Great builds well done but regarding the Sea Hawk should'nt the serial numbers be under the wings?? or am I missing something here?

According to this the serials are displayed on both the upper and lower surfaces, very unusual.

Nice set, but the Gannett is my favbird as it looks like you could get in and start it up, that said the rest look very well done and put my work to shame. :mad: :clap:
