"outstanding detail"
clunymike
The level of detail on this model is amazing. The landing gear has intricate machinery and hydraulics, the cockpit has spars and meticulously crafted pedals. Even the texture of the exterior is remarkably detailed! It sounds too good to be true, but if you also purchase the Airfix Spitfire you’ll notice that the Hurricane has a more matte surface because it had an Irish linen skin while the spitfire was stressed metal. Outstanding! The only complaint I have is that the cockpit detail was so awesome that I wanted to show it off, but the model wasn’t really made to have an open/closed canopy option. However, a little clever hobby knife work solves the issue. Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about this model.

"simply perfect!"
jclemente1980 (Coimbra, Portugal)
Although the spitfire was more famous, it was the hurricane that held up the air. the mk1 is characterized by having its wings covered with canvas, not metal like the later ones (mk2 forward). But even on mk1 there were 2 different versions: the early one, which proved the good base for a fighter and a later one. the main difference is the propeler, where the first one was a wood 2 blade fixed pitch, and the second metal three blade constant speed/variable pitch. Even if the parts are roughly the same, this later version is simply perfect! the interior is superb, the gear wells are a piece of art. A nice model to be near the new mould spitfire. Perfect fitting, no putty necessary.

 
"Excellent kit"
jsaber09
An excellent kit, typical of Airfix's new tooling. The detail is adequate for this scale, I had no problems with fit. The only cons are the heavy panel lines and thick sprue attachment points. It makes it very difficult to remove small thin parts like the control stick and pitot tube.

 
"Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk I"
Collin S.
This kit is fantastic for modelers of all skill levels. It is relatively easy to assemble, and provides authentic detail. However, if you are looking to get a good finish on the model, you may want to consider buying some of these items if you don't have them already. I would recommend getting glue that you can apply through a fine nozzle, as the model can be delicate to large sums of glue, and these can be difficult to fix. Next, some modeling putty would go a long way because there are some places in the model that don't fit great. Finally, decal setting solution really aides the decals on this model because they can be a bit bubbly and difficult. Airfix did a great job with this kit, and I, personally, have grown quite fond of their kits recently. Overall, this is a great model for all skill levels, and it exemplifies what modeling is about as a hobby, having fun.
