Hawker Hart Mk I   4.75"   6.25"

First flown in 1928, the Hawker Hart had outstanding performance for a bomber of that period. Able to out run and outperform the RAF's then current fighters, the aircraft immediately proved to be very popular with its crews. Over 400 were produced and they served with the RAF throughout the 1930s, both at home and all across the British Empire. Never issued for service in the RAF, this Hart was instead retained by Hawker, operating as a test and development machine. Post war it was entered into the King's Cup Air Race, before being flown at a number of air shows and appearing in exhibitions throughout the 1960s and 70s. In 1972 it was transferred to the RAF Museum where it is today, suspended from the ceiling in the Milestones of Flight building.

Hawker Hart Mk I

Desinged to meet an Air Ministry specification for a 160mph day bomber, the Hart was first flown in June, 1928.

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.
