Now common, realy ? How long would it take for You to do this in 1/72 ? 3 days ? I guess You are completing 1/144 kits in under 3 hours right ?

Great finish, Terri! The broad soft demarkation line between Sea Blue and Intermediate Blue looks just right. Makes me what to build another "privateer of the air". Have built 3 so far and some more in my stash ....

Jacob,
Now that's pretty funny . I'd figure more like 1 day for 1/144 scale.

Terri, I'm late with my praise. It really is a standout build and I'm glad you were able to finish before things get too nice outside and pull you away from the bench. What are you going to build next?

Thanks Russ , but at the rate we are going here it looks like another few weeks before I'm back on the bike . We had more snow over night . Even though it will melt fast are temp for the daily high is below seasonal .

Should be more then enough time to finish the Hurricane .

Very nice corsair Terri! It looks like you got the wing fold look spot on.

Thanks Ernest , it was a frustrating fit this time around . The inner wing spar in the wheel wells I have in the wrong postion which made a weird fit . I ended up have to remove the wing fold parts and with some clever sanding and scraping I was able to make it all come together .
