Marvellous job all round.Just two questions. 1) what happened to the steel fuse idea and 2) was the fabric stitched and taped or had they stopped doing that on the Hurries.and a suggestion as to which prop to use.Early models had two bladed wooden props In fact so did Spits so you could have gone down that route but by the battle they had 3 blades so wouldn't have been accurate Lol anyway as I said before a marvellous job

Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

We couldn't swing the cost of a steel fuse, unfortunately. As for the fabric, all fabric coverings on certified aircraft even now are ribbed stitched, the only exception I know of is HIPEC, which I believe was given STC approval for a small number of bush planes. There was a huge push to get the aircraft completed, and doing rib stitching was simply not in the cards. As for the prop, it's done, it's a 3-blade. No ! Sqn RCAF upon arrival in May 1940, traded their Canadian Hurricanes for factory new ones, with metal skinned wings, sealing fuel tanks, seat armour, and the 3 bladed adjustable pitch prop. We literally had to pick a specific date, 1 July 1940, for this aircraft, as the RAF kept changing their minds on the underside paint, roundel size, serial number size, etc. The prop will be going on sometime this week, and I should be able to get the right aileron attached by the weekend, which pretty much ends my part, except for the celebrations, and a screening in the Museum of "The Battle of Britain". Then it's on to repairing/refurbishing a TATS 50 R/C target plane, circa 1st Gulf War, and possibly refurbishing the wood prop blades for the museums Fairey Firefly. We're awaiting some instructions to allow the prop blades to be certified for engine run-ups.

Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

Museum loves visitors, be sure to check opening times though, winter hours now in effect. Here's some photos of the Hurricane up on the stands, she needs a good bath, then it will be time for the Official Hoopla.

Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

She looks good! If the official unveiling is a public affair, I may take a run down.

Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

Cool, I'll keep you posted. There'll be a showing after the official stuff, of "Battle of Britian" for anyone wishing to watch this classic, in an aviation museum!
