This is a preview of RAF No. 213 Squadron. This unit is from 1942-43 and flew from airfields in Egypt.

Thanks to Ray ROTTON50 for the round wheels and correct rear fuselage on this model that came from the original model and skin: Nico based on an original camo work by DeanH, based on Col Gibbon's HR Trop Hurricane 3Dz.

And to Peter Booth for research and suggestions on squadrons to paint from the Desert War.

Nice work Mike and I did notice Ray's hand in improving the model.

Well done to you both.

Cheers pilot

There are quite a few illustrations of this machine. A photo is the Holy Grail of Hurricane historians.

But why Mike?

Did he want to try and fool the Italian Pilots?

Honestly, I have no explanation for the camo. Perhaps the crew chief had an artistic bent.

Hi Guys,

The rather strange nose camo is probably down to me as I sent Mike a profile of it. Clearly non-standard field application - not sure how or why it came about but I have seen profiles of the same aircraft fom 3 different sources including an old "Profile Publications" which are usually pretty accurate, but no actual photo of it so far. Of course if the original source was wrong and the other 2 copied it then it may not be correct - difficult to tell. I will have to see if I can find an actual photo but for the moment I will assume it is genuine. If any of you find pics that either confirm of otherwise please let either me or IM know. It certainly seems to have grabbed your attention, which is not bad. And in answer to your question John, perhaps you are right - a couple of seconds uncertainty by the enemy could just save your life I suppose!

Cheers,

Pete
