Pacific Coast Models 1/32 scale Hurricane Mk.I

Early versions of Hawker’s iconic Hurricane featured fabric-covered wings and heavy, two-bladed wooden propellers.

Thanks to Pacific Coast Models, we now have a newly tooled, fabric-winged early Hurricane Mk.I in the increasingly popular 1/32 scale, with options for building any rag-wing version by making the lower fuselage fairing a separate piece, along with all three propeller possibilities. Two exhaust options also are featured among the 19 resin pieces. The 28 photoetched-metal parts include a prepainted instrument panel. Two different windscreens are provided, although a molding flaw is present in the middle of the armored glass option. (PCM is aware of the defect and has been very forthright in addressing the issue – details of how to obtain a newly-molded replacement are listed on its website.)
