Further to our models for the IWM Duxford education department we were tasked with designing and manufacturing a 1/3rd scale Hurricane for Sci-high education based in Cambidgeshire and run by Chris Jefferson.
A CAD model was created including the ladder frame which we produced as an educational assembly project in its own right.
The main Hurri fuselage was machined from HD poly and coated in cloth and epoxy. The internals featured a welded alu chassis for the undercarriage and wing mountings. All together the model was made up of over forty components which school groups assemble.
The livery represents Hurricane MK1 of No 1 squadron flown by P/O Arthur Clowes featuring his famous wasp nose art.
