So I decided to let the community have a say in what my first Hurricane Mk.I Repaint will be. I have narrowed the choices down to a pair of famous Aces that flew the Hurricane during the Battle of Britain, Douglas Baader and Stanford Tuck, or an earlier, more generic Hurricane from the Battle of France/Dunkirk evacuation period. So which of these three will it be? Cast your vote and let's see.

Can you post some pics you might design from?  I mean I could vote for who I think is the coolest guy but then you might give his plane a Hello Kitty skin :).

Good idea, I didn't even think about that. Here are a couple of links to model airplanes of Stanford Tuck and Douglas Baader's Hurricanes. I've not settled on a BoF/Dunkirk era plane yet.

 

Stanford Tuck

 

Douglas Baader

I thought most RAF type colour patterns were pretty generic apart from unit and special badges. In 1940

I though a patten for tropical, africa, the advanced force in France and home. 

Possibly you could follow #73 squadron from France to home to North Africa. 

But if voting on the current 3, my preferance is

1 France geneeric

2 Stanford Tuck

3 Douglas Barder ( would like his later spit with the DB markins though)
