Hawker Hurricane Mk IIc

One of my Xmas presents was the Hobbyboss model of the Hawker Hurricane Mark IIc.  This is a later version with the four 20mm cannons.  The only problem with the Hobbyboss kits is that they are modelled with the undercarriage lowered and I prefer flying versions.  Therefore I had a little bit of extra work to remodel the door flaps closed.  I also decided to paint it in Western Desert colours as I will only be using it in games involving ground support and there was little of this action in North West Europe during the period when it was in significant use.
