1:72 Scale  Metal Diecast - Hawker Hurricane Mk.I Length: 5.5"  Wingspan: 6.5”

This Hawker Hurricane model is a single seat plane. The cockpit is glue shut. There is no pilot figurine included. The landing gear is modeled in the retracted position and is fixed. A display stand with information about the particular model is included.

This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.

The maker of this model, Oxford, did a good job with this model, specifically the color scheme and the markings are very crisp and clear. The panel lines and hatches are very nicely done (engraved).

The box measures 7.5 inches by 7.5 inches by 3.25 inches.

The Hawker Hurricane is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was designed and predominantly built by Hawker Aircraft Ltd for the Royal Air Force (RAF). Although largely 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.
