The “antitank” Hurricane Mk.IID called “The Flying Tin Opener” was used in three major theatres of operations: North African deserts, cloudy and foggy England, and tropical Burma. Thanks to this, we were able to include various and interesting camouflages and marking schemes in this model kit.
Although all of the presented aircraft served in the British RAF, their camouflages and even national markings (“the roundels”) differ greatly. Let’s check the painting schemes of the “anti-tank” Hurricanes Mk. IID from the latest Arma Hobby kit!
