Description Extended Information
 
Hobby Master HA8652 RAF Hawker Hurricane Mk. IIc Fighter - JX-E/BE581, Karel Kuttelwascher, "Night Reaper", No. 1 Squadron, 1942 (1:48 Scale) "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
- British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, commenting on the British airmen in the Battle of Britain

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. When it lost its edge as a dogfighter in 1941, the Hurricane took on a number of other roles, including ground attack missions and maritime combat air patrols.

Pictured here is a 1:48 scale replica of a RAF Hawker Hurricane Mk. IIc fighter that was nicknamed "Night Reaper", and attached to No. 1 Squadron during 1942. Now in stock!

Historical Account: "Kut" - Karel Kuttelwascher (nickname "Kut") was born in Czechoslovakia and in August 1940 went to England and joined the RAF No. 1 Squadron in October 1940 flying Hurricane Mk. Ia. Kut scored his first RAF victory on April 8th, 1941. In July 1941 the squadron was re-equipped with Hurricane Mk. IIc and carrying out night intruder missions. Kuttelwascher's aircraft wore a red banner on the starboard side that said "Night Reaper" and on May 4th, 1942 he shot down three He-111's. Kuttelwascher ended WWII with 18 confirmed victories and two DFC's.
