Default Hawker Hurricane model kit

Does anybody know of a Hawker hurricane kit that is in the 65 to 80 inch wingspan range. All help is appreciated.

Not a kit in the traditional sense but Bob Holman should have a laser cut parts package for the Brian Taylor designed 70 inch span Hurricane. The plans and cowl/canopy are available from Traplet in the UK. You won't find a more scale Hurricane anywhere and there are a bunch of great build threads on this bird over at RC ScaleBuilder.

Aerodrome had a very good one about 65 inches several years ago. You will see one now and then of fleabay. You can't find replacement canopies or cowls for them though. I have the last one cut. It was gifted to me by Dick Watz (Aerodrome Models owner) along with a couple of spare cowls and canopies. Looks to be a decent scale model. I've thought about blowing up the plan and building one at about 110 inches.

Check out SkyShark RC in Arizona. Took over the Heritage RC line when they folded years ago. They have a 60 size Hawker kit (I have it in storage) that's pretty good. Around $225 from them.

Warjet, you sure you are not thinking of the Hawker Tempest? I don't see a Hawker hurricane at their site. Thank you.

I have plans for a Hawker Hurricane Mk I, wingspan 1,78 meter ( 70"). The drawings are from the UK and a firm called RC Model World. The scale is 6,93/1 (1 3/4" =1" ) , lets say the scale is 1/7 to get more even numbers. The drawings seems OK in general, but there is one flaw, they have omitted the landing retract mechanism. I manage to get a sketch, or rather a perspective drawing, impossible to take any measurements from, of the mechanism used in the real thing and my intension is to build it that way. If it is a scale model then it is a scale model. Does anyone have any experience of this?, I saw earlier in this thread a guy who was building a 1/4 scale of a Hurricane and he had a scaled down retract mechanism of the original one. Does anyone know of him and were to find him?

Best
Tomas
