Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk I finished

The first one for 2018 (yes I did start it last year but...). Not a quick build as the wing roots on my example were a shocking fit but altogether it looks the part and it's quite nicely detailed. Aftermarket goodies were limited to an Eduard Zoom set for the interior, HGW seatbelts and Eduard 'Brassin' wheels and exhausts and it was painted with Mr Hobby acrylics.
One thing I would do next time is to just paint the roundels on the upper wing rather than use the decals as it would have been easier but apart from that and the few issues I had I quite enjoyed the build.
So here ya go, Hawker Hurricane Mk I R4118 UP-W from 605 sqn, Royal Air Force;
