A true veteran of the Battle of Britain; the Hurricane Mk I was built in 1940 by Hawker Aircraft. As opposed to the Spitfire built from steel; the Hurricane Mk I was built out of wood. This made it far quicker to build; so much so that it outnumbered the Spitfire two to one at the outbreak of the WW2. Its wings would have had invasion stripes during WW2 to ensure that it wasn't mistakenly shot down by the British. It featured a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine which allowed for a maximum speed of 340mph. It could climb to a maximum altitude of 36,000 feet, with an incredible power (for it's time) of 1,185hp! The rate of climb was 2,780 feet per minute.

Prestige Models are thrilled to introduce you to this accurate scale flying balsa model of the fabulously ferocious WW2 fighter - Hurricane Mk I. An exemplary real-size example of this WW2 fighter is based at Shuttleworth for all to visit.
