More Photos..
See in the second Pic how the absence of radiator make posible a Flaps of only one piece with more surface.

Pablo, there was a project for a radial engined Hurricane, altho your excellent build becomes a whif in that it's wearing No 6 Squadron codes as if it were an operational machine.

Super build!

Beautifully done!

With that extra flap area, it'd tempting to turn this into a Hercules-powered Sea Hurricane.

A fine idea!

Agree with that as well  :thumbsup:

There's something very nice and "right" about that - well done!  :thumbsup:

Great idea, great build...but it just doesn't look right. Maybe I'm being a Hurricane purist ( my Grandfather's favourite aeroplane ). Nonetheless, great job all around. Love the detail and weathering you did, and that big honking exhaust pipe says 'power' !

:cheers:

I'm sure the Royal Navy Pilot.. would be grateful to have less speed to landing.

Sure, of course is a whif...The title is an ironical sentence. I wish exist a Photo of the original plane.
Really, the unique diference with a completely operational plane is the yellow low surfaces. It is a failure?
Thanks for your words

Of course, I don't see a Hurricane when I see a Bristol-Hurri...is other thing, Perhaps to apreciate this model will be necesary other scheme to other country. Perhaps in that way it don't squeak as metal nail in a blackboard.
Thanks :cheers:

It is so "correct" that it would fool many people.  Some say that is their favorite type of What If: so realistic it seems not a what if.

You are very talented, Monsieur Pablo and I'm very glad you are on this forum.

Echoing the comments before; a very credible model. Love the weathering detail around the gun access panels. This must have been a very operational plane!
