| 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!

Good reintroduction to model kits

I was bought this kit for Christmas as I'd been complaining that I hadn't built a kit for 15years. It's a fantastic kit and has got me hooked on model building once more! Though I do recommend that you spend a little bit more money & buy a few more of the paint colours to really appreciate this superb aircraft.

Battle of Britain Winner!

Like some of my fellow enthusiasts I've built several Hurricanes before, my last being about a decade ago now! This new tool is a real winner in my book, some really outstanding detail for a very fair outlay. The build was straight forward and well thought out, with possibly one exception, that being installation of the pilot (if used). Kit Instructions would have this done after the cockpit is closed (fig 20) This modeller would suggest some time prior to this, as his legs will have cockpit framework, control column and rudder peddles to navigate around. A better detailed figure would be good too please 'Uncle Airfix', a little more in keeping with the Boulton Paul Defiant crew. Minimal filler was used and my only addition to the build was some Lycra thread for the radio rigging. Decals were brilliant. I did try to add some after market stencils from my spares, which sadly fell far short of those found within this boxing. Lesson learned! A very pleasing build.... Read more
