Hello Lexta,
Been following your progress and looking forward to your maiden! I suppose it's too early to tell but I'm wondering how the HK retracts fare with the original ones. Any chance you could share the HK link for the retracts and oleo struts?
Many thanks and good luck!

I think the HK retracts are going to be great. 10mm pin the oleos are 11mm so need some reduction to fit correctly. Stock etract pins are smallr. The links are in my previous post which you quoted.

Hi all! Looking @ the photos I've noticed that the big roundels on the fuselage are, pretty unrealistically, positioned asymmetrically as per following photo.
Is it an error of the Seagull prototype or you've found this also on yours Hurricanes?
Thanks!

Many thanks Lexta for the feedback! Was just referring to the exact ordering link of the items in HK and not the photos, if available of course. Thanks again

I honestly can't remember, the first thing I did was remove the decals and I did not pay that much attention to them.

Very Nice I love Florence. My friend did an appreticship building the floats for theCarnival parade in Viareggio. He took my wife and I through the hangers and showed us some of the floats. Just amazing. He now sails yachts, I think from Laverno.

The world is little! I've been many times @ Viareggio Carnival, pretty near to Pisa my born city.
Its charts are really famous, every year are different and really humoristic!

Small world indeed! I did a coach tour of Italy & Greece back in 2006, stops included Pisa & Florence. Amazing places!

And making the world even smaller... there was an newlywed couple from Oz on the tour!
