A Hawker Hurricane Mk-1 as modelled from a 3 view as a block using a Alvin Engineer No. 111P scale (thumbnail 2)and a airframe defined to the level of exposure available on the Internet (default thumbnail, #3 and greater)and searchable with COMCAST. I have fully explored the unseen structure implied by tubular concepts where that is the most likely form as suggested by photographs. This is an information model. It is not materially a Hawker Hurricane nor is it even a scale model though a scale was used to capture it's proportion. It was researched to assure for instance that the rounded propellor spinner is characteristic of early models with the Rotol propellor with wooden blades (on the crude model #2). It is a 'look and feel' model not a photographic replica. It was produced in the United States of America and represents in economic terms a partial gift to the purchaser based wholly on the merit and not the cost of the input. This product is not licensed from nor does it directly use any data from the RAF, RAE or MOD nor Sopwith, Hawker or BAE Systems plc. It is intended to portray a combat capability as ememplified by an industrial product in an electronically acessible format. It's purely British tie is a consequence of my own introduction to fighter tactics and employment. The engine included is just a very raw envelope to assure it fits under the nose metal with it's 5.4 inch bore and 6 inch stroke and that the exhaust stacks and propellor drive are at the correct levels. No Rolls-Royce license is included or implied. Access to photographs and illustrations available on the Internet by search on COMCAST has contributed to this project though none of them were copied or modified to produce this hand made 3D electronic model. The wing and stabilizer planform, taper and wing tips are not from a wind tunnel model or measurements in detail of a flight form to create a Reynolds number scale for the airfoils. The crude first impression on the left is for projection of the scope of work and is the actual basis for the valuation imposed. It is really only fitting to take half a man's daily wage for a weeks work and begin with no referee as an unknown as Harry hawker did. A leather helmet and goggles is included. positioned for a James Poser 6 figure posed. It is hoped this fully supports the survey value of Hurricanes worldwide. Anything capable of several g's of force has no real factor and surplus or scrap is only implied from the static impact on the ground. Cobber Kaine's portraits and Normandy stone are in my photographic collection as I assess tail volume and aspect ratio in ground effect as well as overtake and dive speed limits. With the 4 pane per side canopy and stabilizer braces and two clew pitot this is the prototype flight test item. A full skin is provided in two groups aluminum and fabic which can be made invisible as well as by parts of the goups to expose everything or just a door openning. Raising the landing gear is not entirely user friendly in these export models. A spinning prop is provided as an alternative to the stopped wooden two-bladed one.
