From the manufacturer:

Although often overshadowed by the Supermaine Spitfire, the Hawker Hurricane was in fact the RAF's most vital fighter during the early years of the Secon World War. Many of these tough, partly fabric-covered monoplane fighters went with the British Expeditionary Force to France in early 1940, and once the Blitzkrieg began they put in a valiant defense against the numerically superior Luftwaffe. Although slower than the Messerschmitt Bf109 and with a less destructive armament, the Hurricane was able to turn tighter, and absorb considerable punishment. During the Battle of Britian it was the RAF's most numerous fighter, mainly tasked with attacking the German bombers and many aces such as Robert Stanford-Tuck, Douglas Bader and later Pat Pattle gained considerable scores with the Hurricane. After the Battle of Britain ended, Hurricanes were used across the world, from the Middle East to Russian and even aboard aircraft carriers as the Sea Hurricane. But the summer of 1940 will always be seen as the Hurrican's finest hour.

20cm long and 25.5.cm wide when assembled, with 127 pieces. Includes decals for two markings versions.
