This beautifully detailed Airfix Hawker Hurricane MK1 model brings to life one of the key aircraft in the battle for the skies during World War II.
The Hawker Hurricane was a important fighter aircraft in service with the RAF at the start of the Battle of Britain and going on to participate in the action on all fronts.
The Hawker came to be regarded as a rugged and reliable ground attack machine, but it was undoubtedly its service as a defensive fighter during the Battle of Britain that forged its reputation as one of the war's greatest fighter planes.
It first entered RAF service in December 1937 and was powered by the famous Rolls Royce Merlin engine, reaching speeds in excess of 300 mph.
