Kit development

The Hurricane is probably the plane of the late 30s era, that amazes me the most, even ahead of the Spitfire. Obviously there are already a bunch of kits out there, but I always wanted to do my own and take it even further than other designers have in the past. If it’s the correct design of the fuse, especially the stringer design (which is 100% scale on mine), or the wing setup. There are a lot of challenges when designing a truely scale Hawker Hurricane. You immediatly know that this plane was the direct successor of the biplane era, just look at the Hawker Fury. It has a lot of it’s features, even if there’s only one wing. It is the true hero of the Battle of Britain – enjoy your built.

Thanks to Richard J. Caruana for support, you know his work from the SAM Publications Modellers Datafile.

1/4th kit enlargement was done in spring 2020.
