Oxford Diecast Oxford Aviation AC069
Hawker Hurricane Mk I Diecast Model
RAF No.6 OTU, L2006, RAF Sutton Bridge, England, 1940

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Hawker Hurricane Mk I   5.25"   6.75"

The single-seat Hawker Hurricane was one of several types of aircraft, including the Gloster Gladiator, used by 6 OTU (Officer Training Unit), which was formed in March 1940 at RAF Sutton Bridge. The unit trained fighter pilots, with its first pilot pool coming from No. 11 Group RAF before transferring to No. 12 Group RAF of Fighter Command. Our model is a replica of a Hurricane Mk I from the Group 6 OTU at Sutton Bridge numbered L2006 in 1940. Decorated in a green and dark brown camouflage scheme, the underside is bright yellow and the aircraft features a red tail band. The RAF roundels are printed on the upper and lower wings. A final detail sees the guns, blades and tyres coloured black with a rust coloured exhaust pipe. Its role here is in sharp contrast to its essential contribution in the air during WWII, when it certainly earned its place in aviation history.

Hawker Hurricane Mk I

Based on the Fury biplane and designed by Sydney Camm as a monoplane fighter, the Hurricane was first flown on November 6th, 1935. With its wide-set landing gear, easy handling, reliability, and stable gun platform, the Hurricane was suitable for a variety of different roles such as intruder, ground strafing and night fighter. Steel-tube construction meant cannon shells could pass right through the wood and fabric covering without exploding. The Hurricane underwent many modifications during its lifetime, including an upgraded Merlin engine and interchangeable multi-purpose wings, staging twelve 7.7mm guns and two 40mm anti-tank guns and carrying two 500lb bombs.
