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.
Designed by Brian Taylor this 1:6.8 scale, 1.78 m wingspan R/C model plan of the Hawker Hurricane is designed on two well detailed plan sheets, showing the installation of a retractable undercarriage and working flaps. The model is of conventional all-wood construction, but a moulded plastic cockpit canopy, engine cowling and a metal propeller spinner are available. A laser-cut wood-pack is also available. This aeroplane is designed to be powered by two-stroke or four-stroke engines, but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied, so please send us information if you make a successful EP version!) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.
