The first two Hobby Master Hurricanes HA8601 and HA8602 sold very well, but like all new tooling collectors did point out one of two things.
Hobby Master always try to look at customer feedback and have made the following adjustments to the tooling for the Hurricane MK 1.
1. Reduced the size of the Propeller Boss Cover.
2. Made the ring and bead gun sight smaller.
3. Removed the oil catcher from behind the prop boss cover for all future MK1 Hurricanes, but will feature on future Hurricane MK II.
The first release to feature these improvements will be the following models due to arrive in the UK at Tiger Hobbies end of October 2015.
HA8603 Hawker Hurricane Mk.I GN-A, F/L J B Nicolson, 249 Sqn. England 1940 Fighter Commands only VC of WW2.
HA8604 Hawker Hurricane Mk.I GN-F, Plt Off Tom Neil, 249 Sqn England 1940, Wing Commander Neil is one of the few living Fighter Pilots of the Battle of Britain and featured in Channel 4 Battle of Britain Return of the Spitfires.
