Although the first British combat plane to fly faster than 300mph, produced almost to the end of World War II and used on every front, the Hawker Hurricane hasn't always been recognised for what it was worth; although its career was brilliant it was eclipsed by the Supermarine Spitfire. However, the Hurricane was the real winner of the Battle of Britain, since in the Summer of 1940, two thirds of RAF Fighter Command's squadrons were equipped with Hurricanes. Even better, at the end of the war, the Hurricane had chalked up a very impressive tally, since more than half of all British kills, all theatres of operations included, were scored by the different versions of the Hurricanes. This highly detailed book contains the kind of detail every modeller will value, with colour profiles of the variants showing their markings and including a history of the plane illustrated with black and white photos.

This inspirational Hurricane title dispels the rumour that the aircraft simply wore either green/ brown or grey/ green upper surfaces. There are some fascinating schemes in here... * Airfix Model World *
A concise and extremely useful modelling reference which gives a complete overview of the aircraft and a huge choice of different schemes to inspire you. * Air Modeller *
I really like this book. It is an excellent overview of a very historically significant aircraft. It is almost a "spotter's guide" in the way it points out the various changes as the aircraft developed. * www.scaleplasticandrail.com *
