Horrible Hurricane

Like winter itself, my Winter Aircraft Project continues.  This Airfix Hurricane IID had been built (by a previous owner) down to the same standard as the other kits already mentioned but as it was in one piece little remedial work was required. 
Despite having owned many Hurricanes (in various scales) over the years, this is my first Mk IID.  Given that it consists basically of half a troop of 40mm Bofors guns bolted to a basic Hurricane it is an irresistible combination!
 A game use?  Well I do have an idea to resurrect a very basic air game I used to play in the '70s....

A game! A game!

Your public demands a game!

Absolutely a game.
Kick it old school style!

Actually the Vickers class S and the Rolls 2 pdr had nothing in common at all with the Bofors gun apart from the calibre.

Just sayin'

OK, OK. Just let me get thought the end of the tax year. And build some German aeroplanes....

Steady on old chap - next you'll be telling me you're coming to play it!

Your description may be more accurate, but I still like mine!

2 40mm guns will make a mess. Nice model.

Don't laugh it could happen - I hope to make it across the pond to see the ancient pater some time this year.

Half a Bofors Troop bolted to a wing, a skipful of rivets flying in close formation ... it's still the same aircraft, and a very nice one too :O)
