| Description

The Hurricane was developed as a replacement for the RAFs pre-war bi-plane fighters, such as the Hawker Fury and Gloster Gauntlet. Considered revolutionary when it was unveiled in 1935, by the start of WWII the earliest versions with fabric covered wings and two bladed propellers had fallen behind the performance of the best German fighters.

Nevertheless, once fitted with 3-blade propellers these early Hurricanes were very successful during the Battle of Britain in 1940.

Paint Scheme - No.615 Squadron, RAF Kenley, England, August 1940.

Airfix Starter Sets are ideal for beginners. Each Small Starter Set includes glue, brush and four acrylic paints - all that is needed to complete a fabulous first kit!

One of the most famous fighter aircraft of the Second World War, the Hawker Hurricane is regarded as the hero of the Battle of Britain, as it accounted for more enemy aircraft destroyed than the rest of Britain’s defences combined. A stable gun platform, a well-aimed burst from its eight Browning machine guns would make short work of any Luftwaffe aircraft in its sights.

Hurricane Mk1

Decent starter set, although the especially fiddly landing gear makes it a little more difficult than some of the other small starter sets. Excellent Decals too, none of those stupidly tiny ones that often end up in the bin!

First Airfix kit, But absolutely stunning

The kit goes together well and looks great when finished. This is a brilliant kit for beginners and a joy to build.
