Hawker Hurricane MkI (Scale 1:24)

The Hawker Hurricane was the most numerous fighter in service with the RAF at the start of the Battle of Britain. The Hawker went on to prove itself a vital effective fighter aircraft on all fronts of the Second World War. It came to be regarded as a rugged and reliable ground attack machine, but it was undoubtedly the service as a defensive fighter during the Battle of Britain that forged its reputation as on of the wars greatest fighters.

Entering service with 111 Sqaudron in December 1937, the original fabric wings made way for metal ones by 1939. During the Battle of Britain, the average strength of the fighter command was 1,326 Hurricanes compared with 957 Spitfires. It was the Hurricane that Flt. Lt. Nicholson gained the fighter commands' only Victoria Cross of the war, downing an enemy Messerschmit Bf110, while his own aircraft was engulfed in flames.

After the Battle of Britain, the Hurricane went on to serve in the Far East, as well as the Desert and Eastern Front.
