Iconic Machines # 3 Hawker Hurricane – Pencil on Bristol Board

I put the paints away for a change and sat with my pencils. Its the time of year when us aircraft buffs remember the “Battle of Britain” the events in 1940 when a “few” out-flew “many”. There are many myths surrounding this historic time. One is that the popular Spitfire fighter downed more enemy aircraft. Not true. This accolade belongs to the type shown. This is a mark 11C. In order to get the lines correct I had to buy and construct a small plastic kit, just like I used build in the late 1950′s. A trip down nostalgia lane. My second childhood.
