Description Extended Information
 
Hobby Master HA8650 RAF Hawker Hurricane Mk. IIc Fighter - PZ865, "The Last of the Many!", 1944 (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 dubbed "The Last of the Many!", and rolled out in 1944. Now in stock!

Historical Account: "The Last of the Many!" - Hurricane IIC PZ865 was completed in July 1944 as the last of 14,533 Hurricanes to be built and was given the inscription "Last of the Many" that it wore for several years. PZ865 was retained by the company for trial work. In 1950 PZ865 was given a civil registration of G-AMAU and in 1972 the aircraft was given to the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby where it was refurbished and flies as 1944 HW840 / EG-S piloted by Canadian Flt J. Whalen DFC of the SEA Command.
