Together with the Spitfire, the Hawker Hurricane was one of the
representative RAF fighters of WWII. This low-wing monoplane with wide-track
retractable landing gear and eight 7.7mm machine guns incorporated proven
biplane features such as a tubular frame. Although Hurricanes were outperformed
by the Luftwaffe's more advanced Messerschmitt Bf 109Es, the Battle of Britain
in July 1940 saw Spitfires engage escorting Bf109s while Hurricanes went after
the bombers. As a result of judicious unit management and pilot bravery, the RAF
inflicted heavy losses on the Luftwaffe and were eventually able to claim a
hard-fought victory. This Tamiya special release is made up of two manufactures
products to give modelers access to one exclusive kit.
