Description

P3576 (GN-A), Flight Lieutenant James Brindley Nicolson (VC)

Although the prototype Hawker Hurricane completed its first flight only four months before the much celebrated Spitfire, it is seen by many as being from a much earlier era of British aviation and is generally not held in the same regard as its more famous stablemate.

It did, however, prove to be a vital component in Britain’s defences during the early months of WWII, equipping more RAF Squadrons than any other fighter. Much easier to construct and repair than the Spitfire, the Hurricane shouldered much of the combat burden during the Battle of Britain and was responsible for destroying more Luftwaffe aircraft than the combined total of Britain’s other defences, including the Spitfire. Rugged and reliable, the Hurricane was a supremely stable gun platform which could absorb a tremendous amount of battle damage and still bring its pilot home. Once back at base, a damaged Hurricane could be patched up and returned to the fray much quicker than the all metal and more labour intensive Spitfire.

Features:

  • Detailed Crew Figure(s)
  • Optional Undercarriage Down
  • Rotatable Propellers

Specifics:

  • Scale: 1:72

Corgi's famous model vehicles captured the imagination of millions of baby boomers and, what were once simply toys for boys, are highly sought-after in the expanding collectables market.
