hi all,

Interesting link to souvenirs that are being made of Ray Holmes' BoB Hurricane remains. He was the pilot that rammed a Dornier bomber over Buckingham Palace when his ammunition was expended.

Has anyone made a skin of his aircraft?

yeah you would have thought the RAF would have crashed more planes huh, therefore making more material available to do these and hence lowering the price Pingu............ shame on them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

They look a little on the home-made side.
I wouldn't mind just buying the metal and making one myself http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Why didn't they try to reconstruct it? I suppose a life-size "sculpture" in a museum would be better.
