The Hurricane Mk1 Model Kit by Italieri recreates the aircraft that was the most widely used fighter by the British Royal Air Force at the beginning of World War II. The Hurricane was powered by a Rolls-Royce Merlin 12-cylinders, liquid-cooled, with more than 1,000 HP that could lead to a speed above 500 km/h. The eight 7.7 mm Browning machine guns, which equipped it, guaranteed a good firepower. It has contributed significantly to the victory of the RAF during the Battle of Britain, but during the war, it has gradually given the role of front-line fighter to the more modern Spitfire due to its slower and old fashion design.
This kit is perfect for a gift for any passionate model enthusiast or perhaps a project for you. Construct this model to recreate the skilled aircraft and paint to bring it to life!
