The Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk. I has its decals. The markings are fairly simple. The aircraft operated from Malta in Dec. 1940, flown by Sgt. F. N. Robertson of 261 Squadron. Decals are from Aviaeology’s Vital Storm Pt. 1 set. It’s a good set, though I only used the aircraft code and serial number. The kit’s roundels and tail flash looked very good, and I wanted to preserve the aftermarket ones for later use if a kit did not have good roundels. Also, I assumed the kit fin flash would fit better, as it was made specifically for the kit. (Of course, the aftermarket set may have fit perfectly too.)
Despite the less than stellar start to this kit, I am happy with how it is ending up.
