We present the first results of a project aimed at the combined study of massive stars and their surrounding nebulae by means of a detailed study of Galactic HII regions ionized by only one massive star. With this, we intend to check the validity of the new generation of massive star model atmosphere codes in terms of ionizing ux distribution. We take into account the effect of the nebular density distribution in our analyses. Various types of stellar and nebular observations have been collected for this purpose.
