The Hawker Demon represented the fighter variant of Hawker’s very successful and popular Hart family. When introduced, the Hart was so fast that contemporary RAF fighters could not intercept it and so, Hawker were asked to produce a fighter along similar lines. The resulting aircraft was the Demon. While some were equipped with turrets for the rear facing armament, the majority had a single gun on a flexible rear mount, with forward armament of two .303 machine guns fitted, one either side of the nose. Over 200 were produced for the RAF, serving until just after the outbreak of the Second World War. 41 Squadron was formed in 1916 and is today one of the oldest squadrons serving with the RAF. As well as being based at Northolt, the squadron used its Demons on air policing duties in the Middle East. Today, the squadron operates Tornado GR4s as an operational evaluation unit.

Hawker Demon Mk I

Desinged to meet an Air Ministry specification for a two-seat fighter version of the Hart bomber, the Demon was first flown in 1931.

Corgi's 1:72 scale Hawker Hart series includes the Hart Day Bomber, Demon Fighter and Audax Army Co-Operation variants. The fuselage and lower wing are constructed in diecast metal while the top wing is constructed in plastic, both featuring simulated fabric stretched surfaces. The two individual tandem cockpits are fitted with a pilot figure and rear facing observer figure operating a ring mounted Lewis machine gun. Fine guage wire has been hand woven between the wings and is also seen on the horizontal stabilizer as well. Some models include wing mounted bombs, a tubular bomb sight mounted in front of pilot and a left hand side machine gun port.
