Don't say that to Ginger Lacey or Tom Neal, they were glad to see the back of them and get into Spitfires. Adolf Galland wasn't very complimentary about them either. (Old Chuffers). Still a beautiful plane and your rendition captures it perfectly, I'm jealous.

Plan build using some parts from mangled original, Lucky I don't throw things out.

at this stage as from today.

Needs a control throws sorted, slight motor thrust alignment (washers added) then onto the esc settings (if that will be an issue)

was going to be I.C (O.S 10) before covering but went electric.

Covering is from Hobby K, except for the orange (which I thought was red at the shop) that cost more than the blue and white together and is easycoat, they take vastly different temperatures when ironing.

I have always loved the lines of a Hurricane and while it wasn't as good a fighter as the Spitfire or the Bf109, it did dispose of more German bombers than the Spitfire, and bombers win wars not fighters.

Besides many novice pilots initially posted to Hurricane squadrons blessed them for their robustness. One veteran I saw interviewed on the television claimed that he was quite a good pilot by 1941 when he converted to the Spitfire. Had he been sent to a Spitfire squadron direct from training in 1940 he would have had the wheels through the wing on his first landing. According to him, the Hurricane could be dropped in from eight feet and still come back for more.

Picture of my recently repaired Super Sixty just to keep the thread on track.

Brilliant Super Sixty David, puts even more pressure on me to get the Frog Jackdaw back in the air. (Too much talking about it and not doing it). I don't need convincing about the Hurricane, great plane. Comparing it with the Spitfire is a bit like comparing the Rolling Stones with the the Beatles, pointless because they're different kinds of animal! I just took advantage of the words that Danny used and treated them unfairly. Also influenced by recently finishing Tom Neal's book in which he describes his experiences with the Hurricane in Malta in 1941, before they managed to get Spitfires in.

I'll see if I've got any photos fit to put on here.

Some pictures of the new H9 Cub. Engine runs well, started after a couple of flicks. Also has landing lights and am now fitting navigation lights.

Just finished the Seagull Sportsman. Was going to put a OS120 FS Pump, but might be too powerful and pull the wings off. Also thought that a SC 120 might be too big. Had a SC 91 spare, which I bought from a swopmeet, so stuck that in.

Ooh that looks very flasho Pete.

I thought it said Grampy at first sight, caused me to picture all these grey haired gentlemen sitting in their sheds building one.wink .

me thinks this could be a very popular plan build.

Absolute disgrace Ken,

How dare you inspire others to have a go at modelling something different to an ARF.

you will get a good balsa bashing for this.

Hot, cool ----- didn't want to say smashing.

Excellent model.
