Over 1.5 hrs to go yet Dave, and you posted these pics 2 hrs ago. Plenty of time.  ;D

Actually Dizzy's probably just started his last entry for the build around now................  :lol: :lol: :lol:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards

Thanks chaps.

meant to add that the markings are from Kits at War sheet K7/9 'RAF Fighters'.  A well printed sheet let down by too bright blues and reds in the roundels and fin flashes.  Apart from the 32 Sqn Hurricane markings, that is.  P2921 was apparently a Gloster-built example likely to have bright blue and red used in the national markings.  Scale Aircraft Monograph #2 'The Battle for Britain - RAF May to December 1940' pages 36-37 refer; there's additional references in the text elsewhere in the book but I can't recall exactly where.
