Hawker Hurricane V7101, G. Burges No. 69 Sqn, Luqa, Malta, May 1941
Aviation Archive. Model Zone Collection, Series 1. Nice model, put out by Model Zone in 2006. I bought this one from MZ just recently, and the markdown just paid for shipping costs to the US. I now have three of these Series 1 models.

There are two -- what's the word, bothers? -- about this mold, and Corgi should have taken care of them from the get-go. Namely, props on the Hurricane never fit tight enough, and canopies aren't snug against the fuselage. Maybe the company will make fixes in a future release. After all, Corgi/Hornby has produced a new mold for the Spitfire Mk 1, so it could happen to the Hurry.
