Spotted this a bit late as they are out of stock but I am sure more will be available. Less than £60 including retracts, (makes my recent Spitfire seem expensive) Hawker Hurricane Mk IIB

WARNING the music on the video is dreadfull

think i will have to order one of these, always liked the hurricane. was going to get the new e flight one but its nearly 4 times the price. whats wrong with the music on the video by the way? its from the film battle of britain so quite appropriate i think.

Didn't know where the music came from, still not my cup of darjeeling.

The music, it's from the film Battle of Britain, where the Germans are reviewing their fleet of aircraft..

If Hobbyking produced a Hurricane, the same size as the the big P-40 they have been re-advertising,then I would be interested.smiley

The only good foamy of the Hurricane is the rather expensive E-flight one, although I have not seen any issues with the electronics, unlike a few of the Hobbyking BlitzRC models including the above mentioned P-40 question

"The only good foamy of the Hurricane is the rather expensive E-flight one, "

Is this based on your experience of the HK one or conjecture on your behalf?

No I am not saying the HK one is bad--- how can I ? it's just come on the market sarcastic.

I do a lot of research online on different forums to try and sort out the wheat from the chaff before I buy a model so it is not conjecture about the E-Flight offering

So from now on I shall only comment on my experience with my own models ,or better still just keep silent dont know secret

my experience has tought me that all durafly models fly well, so this is on my list and i've just had an e-mail from HK saying they are back in stock.

I don't think is a durafly model but made by art-tech . There have been quite a few reviews of there products in the mag , going on that it should be a good product.

Just looked through their website. looks ok, although decals look a bit random and unsuitable in places, but for the price for a PNP its good value.

Yes we used a little creative licence there. What film is the music from....what plane took part in the Battle of Britain...That's the angle we we're going for.

prop (hobbyking).

Yes Prop, but you did use the "Luftwaffe March" as the background music!

However, speaking as a dyed in the wool, traditional glue and balsa modeller with too many kits, abandoned projects and damaged models in the loft, I still think I'll buy one!
