Frog Hurricane to Sea Hurricane 1B conversion

Unread postby ejboyd5 » Wed Jan 28, 2015 4:36 pm

I finally got my references and photos together in one place so I am able to present the venerable Frog 1/72 Hurricane modified to represent a Sea Hurricane IB of 800 Squadron. According to my primary source (Carrier Air Groups/HMS EAGLE by David Brown, p. 30), this aircraft was flown by Sub Lieutenant A.J. Thompson on a dusk sortie on 12 August 1942 when he destroyed a Ju 87 and a Bf 109 F. The yellow markings are those adopted for Operation Pedestal. As of 12 August, this aircraft, along with the remainder of 800 Squadron was probably flying from HMS VICTORIOUS as HMS EAGLE had sunk at 1315 on the previous day and HMS INDOMITABLE had been seriously damaged.
