Most people would agree the HM4 Thunderbolt is a pretty extreme Machine. Today we take “extreme” just a bit further. Today we bring you the HM4… in battledress!
Two Limited Editions of just eight pieces each – a salute to the legendary WWII aircraft we dreamed of when we were kids.
Their titanium fuselage is studded with real rivets. The dual dials glow and sparkle with a warm vintage patina, created using a special blend of paint mixed with cream-coloured Super-LumiNova and very fine copper particles. The period look is further enhanced by the distinctive strap, which has been crafted from genuine antique Swiss military bags.
And what did aircraft crews lovingly paint on the nose of their aircraft? Pin-ups, of course! The MB&F crew has adorned the HM4 squadron with the gracious “Razzle Dazzle” and playful “Double Trouble”. Each individually hand-painted by award-winning miniature painter Isabelle Villa.
