Revell 1/32 Hurricane IIb (04968)


Recommended Posts

Revell announced the imminent release of this kit (they say December) in an emailed newsletter that contained images of a test shot. These have subsequently been posted online (guilty m'lud) and have, to say the least caused a bit of a stir. If you've not seen them, here they are.

Yes, the wings look a bit droopy. My own reaction was that it might be a hastily assembled test shot, but as far as the chattering classes on social media were concerned it was a night of burning torches and pitchforks outside the Revell HQ. Anyways, here's a response from Radu Brinzan, who designed the tooling.

OK, assuming that clears things up, here's the box art that IMO looks right tasty.

To round things off Hyperscale have put up a build review.
