Historical Note:



The Hawker Hurricane is a British single-seat fighter aircraft of the 1930s-1940s that was designed and predominantly built by Hawker Aircraft Ltd for the Royal Air Force (RAF). Although overshadowed by the Supermarine Spitfire, the aircraft became renowned during the Battle of Britain, accounting for 60% of the RAF's air victories in the battle, and served in all the major theatres of the Second World War.

The 1930s design evolved through several versions and adaptations, resulting in a series of aircraft which acted as fighters, bomber-interceptors, fighter-bombers (also called "Hurribombers") and ground support aircraft. Further versions known as the Sea Hurricane had modifications which enabled operation from ships. Some were converted as catapult-launched convoy escorts, known as "Hurricats". More than 14,583 Hurricanes were built by the end of 1944 (including at least 800 converted to Sea Hurricanes and some 1,400 built in Canada by Canadian Car and Foundry).

  1. Malta's Heroic "Hurricane" 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    After having purchased two 1/72"-scale diecast models of the Royal Air Force Hawker "Hurricane" from Corgi, I was very impressed with this third "Hurricane" addition to my collection - this latest model being from Royal Air Force, Ltd. It comes with extended landing gear, which I prefer, and the detail is excellent with regard to construction, paint scheme, and markings. This "Hurricane Mk. IIb" diecast model from No. 126 Squadron, R.A.F. Luqa, Malta during late 1941 and early 1942 is well-worth having for any World War II aviation enthusiast. Very reasonably priced and of top-quality design, I rate this baby a well-deserved 5 stars.
