RAF Hawker Hurricane Mk. 1 Fighter - Sgt. J.H "Ginger" Lacey, No.501 Squadron, Gravesend, England, September 1940 RAF Hawker Hurricane Mk. 1 Fighter - Sgt. J.H "Ginger" Lacey, No.501 Squadron, Gravesend, England, September 1940 (1:72 Scale)

The Hawker Hurricane was the first monoplane to join the Royal Air Force as a fighter aircraft, capable of reaching speeds in excess of 300-mph in level flight. Often compared with the sleek-looking Supermarine Spitfire, the Hurricane, in actuality, shouldered the brunt of the fighting during the "Battle of Britain", equipping more than three-fifths of the RAF's Fighter Command squadrons.

George Welch, 47th Pursuit Squadron, 15th Pursuit Group, Wheeler Field, Pearl Harbor, December 7th, 1941 [75th Anniversary Pearl Harbor Attack Commemorative Packaging] (1:72 Scale)

The P-40 was the best known Curtiss-Wright designed airplane of the Second World War. It was also one of the most controversial fighters, vilified by many as being too slow, lacking in maneuverability, having too low a climbing rate, and being largely obsolescent by contemporary standards even before it went into production.
