The Full Size: The Hawker Hurricane was the first RAF monoplane fighter but was constructed using traditional techniques developed through Hawker’s long pedigree of inter-war biplane fighters. Whilst it was the highest-scoring fighter during the Battle of Britain, afterwards, it quickly became outclassed but continued in use throughout WWII in a ground attack role.
What’s in an Additional Wood Pack? – Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated laser cut wood pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modelling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.
