Hurricane for extreme climates

Promotional preorder for this cool kit ends on Thursday, 16 May! Hurry up!

The Hurricane Mk IIb, often called the “Hurrybomber”, is an aircraft that appeared in larger numbers in 1941, when Spitfires already dominated European RAF squadrons. However, it was also a period in which the most important battles took place not under the skies of England or France, but in areas where the ease of operation and reliability of the machine were more important than flight speed.

That’s why Hurricane Mk II achieved the greatest glory in its tropical version, operating on distant fronts of World War II, from the Arctic to the Sahara and from Malta to Burma and Ceylon. This version was visually distinguished by a large dust filter suspended under the engine. These are the planes you will find in our latest set 1/48 Hurricane Mk IIb trop 40008, each of them took part in epic battles, crucial for the fate of the war, fought in extreme climates.
