Although the Spitfire is celebrated as England's savior during the Battle of Britain, it was the trusty Hawker Hurricane that inflicted most of the damage on the Luftwaffe. Indeed, the Hurricane destroyed more enemy aircraft than all of Britain's other defenses combined. Among the most celebrated pilots to fly the Hurricane was John Kent, a Canadian ace flying with the largely Polish No. 303 Squadron of the RAF. He finished the war with 12 aerial victories.
A striking Hobby Master reproduction of Kent's Mk. 1 as it appeared in September of 1940, this 1/48 scale, die cast model features that aircraft's signature camouflage paint scheme, engraved panel lines, a glazed canopy, a removable pilot figure, a rotating propeller, realistic Hispano cannons, optional-position landing gear, authentic No. 303 Squadron markings, and a display stand. Measures approximately 8" long with a 10" wingspan.
