I said at the beginning your wing looked businesslike ..... so nice to se I was spot on with my prediction that it boded well... I
I do like being right.  Beautifully constructed and a shame to cover it at all but you must.  So have you a weight to tel us please and in my case cause envy and respect! 

Have you a colour scheme in mind- it was Battle of Britain day here yesterday.

Suspecting you have done this before any other models you could show us pictures of please to add to the delights?

Thanks guys Smiley Did a bit of working on some details. I tried to make radiator, air intake and exhausts from balsa, but I was not happy with the results. Did not look very scale like (bad wood skills). So I downloaded cardboard model and used templates for those details, scaling them to fit the size of my hurricane  Cheesy
I also started covering. Rudder went first. Some photos of the details attached.

@DavidJP, I want to make it in the colors of Polish RAF no 306 squadron, airplane UZV V7118.
I am pretty beginner modeler, I mainly built peanuts and simple dimers, nothing spectacular. I run little youtube channel, you can see my models there. The weight less landing gears is 15.8g for now. The plan is to run it on 2 loops of 1/8.

Hi,
Really nice Hawker! Did you do anything special to get the correct angle between the wing and horizontal stab with the right decalage?
I'm building a Me109 from a GAR kit and am wondering about this.
Thanks,
Ray

Clever idea to use the patterns from printed paper plans! It looks very neat - nice exhaust stacks as well.
Thanks for the link to your video channel - very interesting.
I think you have another nice flying model here.

That fin looks very good indeed.  Nice to see you are going for ‘one in service look’ and not a museum special.  This is proving to be a very entraining topic.  Well done.

One thing though - you mention “bad wood skills” - nice to see you have a sense of humour!

My VMC Hurricane which was heavier - ready to fly - was 31 gms and went OK on I loop of eighth — I like long motors by tthe way.

Thank you for the link - will have to wait until later to browse but looking forward to seeing some gems.

Thans guys, hopefully model will be flying good, I have a trust in this wing area.

@Rayglider, the wing is set on 3deg.  Stab is set to 0, but it's slot is having extra 1.5" space for adjusting, and only leading edge will be attached. I prefer to have a bit more angle set and counterbalance it with downthrust, than having to little.

@DavidJP Do you have some pictures of your hurricane or maybe videos? Would love to see it. For the power, I plan to fly outdoors and expect quite some nose weight needed. Also 3 bladers cost more energy than 2 blade props, so I think even 2 loops of 3/32 might not be enough for me, I will find out on the field Smiley

This is looking gooder and gooder!  I especially like the way you've done the landing gear.  I'm supposing they are removable for flight?  This build forced me to dig out my West Wings 20" kit...

Just for info about your proposed motor, I'm currently using a single loop of 1/8th SS in my SAAB for testing -17" span @ 20 grams w/o rubber.  At about 60% of "safe" turns the model does seem to have enough grunt.  It will gain about 5grams once painted and "glassed" so I doubt if it will need anything more than two loops (4 strands) of 3/32nd.

Pit, yes gears are removable. Good luck with West Wings Kit and with trimming your SAAB!
Slowly I am covering the model. Horizontal stabilizer is done.

Hey Guys,

I finally did cover my hurricane, working with chalks for the first time was a challange. Quite some lessons learned. The biggest mistake was not to flip the wing scheme pattern (chalking on the opposite side of tissue). I did that only for the fuselage because of signings and forgot to do that on the wing. The result: not matching camo:) I did fix it a bit on a wing fillets adding some transitions and it kind of looks ok. So the canopy is not fixed yet, some work inside cockpit is needed. On todo list are still some details and prop finishing. Both wings have 4mm washout and the weight is 19.5g withoug LG.

That looks quite nice!  I really like all the detailed line work and the fillets around the tail group.

Lovely model! All those stringers really give it a proper Hurricane shape. I really like the tissue finish too.

LRF,
You hit the nail on the head. When one thinks of a Hurricane, your model tells it all. Especially fond of the smokey looking patina!

Thanks all of you guys for the kind feedback, happy you like it! I finished the little hawker, some more photos attached. Total weight is 22g and 3g extra is needed to bring CG forward to the correct spot. Should be fine. For now it will be waiting for the good weather and preparing for action. Once it will take off, it will land on my youtube channel and the link will be shared:) Later!

Beautiful covering and detailed finish. I agree with Re the stringers - they really bring the fuse shape to life.
