This time the lad and I were building the Hurricane. He wanted another kit for Christmas last year (2015) and jumped at the chance of having a bright red aeroplane for his collection!

After Christmas was out of the way we started on the build, aiming to have it ready for the May Fly at Shuttleworth. We made it, just! But only with a few late nights in the week before for dad to finish the covering.

I’ve got some pics of the finished model somewhere, which I’ll need to dig out and also some pics taken up at Old Warden.

Suffice to say we had a happy afternoon in the Free Flight field, the Hurricane and the Sparrowhawk both getting in plenty of flights. I need to learn a bit more about trimming, but we weren’t doing bad and left very contented.
