Right I think I may be on to something! I've finished cleaning up both my Hurricanes, I can say without a doubt there's 2 colour variations, it's not just the blue body but the darker grey sections too (Jet engine tops, Access panel, Cockpit & Drone) Check the pictures below and you'll see what I mean! The part numbers are the same, the only thing I can also say is that I think that the darker version was modified to be less brutal on the wing position tabs, I couldn't see anything that stood out but I couldn't swap the internals over as the wings wouldn't turn!

Blimey, I thought this thread had been eaten! I found out later that the darker grey / deeper blue version was from the Norwegian Action Force version. I actually prefer it! Would have loved to keep it but I sold it to the kraken wakes. I think he used it as a custom.

I can get that one for about $150 to me if you're interested in it, sadly it's missing 2 missiles. This is one of the harder to find later estrela vehicles, made when production started to slow down
