The wooden framed and fabric covered Hawker Hurricane was the RAF’s primary fighter at the outbreak of WWII and was instrumental in halting the Luftwaffe’s bombing of Britain.
Designed and built by the Hawker Aircraft Ltd of England and their sister plant in Canada, the Hawker Hurricane was one of the first mass-produced monoplane designed, British single-seat fighters of the 1930s–40s.
Often overshadowed by the sleeker, faster and more heavily armed Supermarine Spitfire, the Hawker Hurricane soon became the workhorse of British Fighter Command and surprisingly, succeeded in claiming the largest number of air victories during the Battle of Britain where it accounted for almost 55% percent of the 2,739 Luftwaffe losses compared with 42% claimed by the Spitfire.
The Hurricane served in almost every combat theatre of WWII from the Middle East and Russian Front to the Indian Frontier and South Pacific.
Installed alongside the Hurricane’s Volt Meter on the aircraft’s port cockpit wall, this original 1940 issued, Hawker Hurricane 5A/1633 Amp Meter is a Battle of Britain veteran.
This Hawker Hurricane Instrument comes complete with detailed Scale Model, Mango Wood Stand & Plaque plus Printed Fact Sheet featuring photo of instrument in aircraft cockpit.
* Note that this SHawker Hurricane Instrument is pictured with a 1/48 scale model rather than the standard detailed, but smaller 1/72 scale. Click on the ‘Model Upgrade' option at the top of this page for the larger 1/48 scale.
