With all the fuss about Spitfires lately, Hurricane fans have been a bit left out in the cold. But they'll soon have something of their own to brag about with the release by Pacific Coast Models of a largescale Hurricane Mk.1.
Pacific Coast Models specializes in items for modellers with an interest in the WWII Italian Air Force and the Italian Royal Army, and they have released three new kits in 1/32nd scale.
I had the pleasure of meeting Ken Lawrence from Pacific Coast Models when I was at the Silicon Valley IPMS show earlier this month. In case you haven't run across PCM before, they specialize in kits from the Italian Air Force and Italian Army as well as offering their own manufactured kits. Recently they have added a variety of armor/figure kits from Historica, Cri.El Model, and CA MA Models.
Pacific Coast Models has announced the upcoming release of their latest kit, the 1/48 scale Macchi C.200 serie VII-one of Italy's most widely used fighters. This is a plastic injection kit produced with newly designed molds.
