Airfix Hawker Hurricane ragwing

Yet another ragwing Hurricane crosses the finish line. Having built a number of them, I don’t have much to add in terms of construction. I can whip them out pretty quickly now.

The markings, for a Hawker Aircraft demo and testbed aircraft, came from Iliad 72-013: Pre-war Hurricanes. According to the instructions, the plane was originally assigned to 56 Squadron RAF in 1938 but then sent back to Hawker. From there it was fitted with various mods and props and was used for flight testing. There are only 2 decals for the scheme, so I would have to say they performed exactly as expected.

This is completed aircraft #471 (4 aircraft, 0 ordnance, 1 vehicle for the year 2017), finished in April of 2017.
