Today we present variants of markings and colours from the Hurricane Mk IIc trop model kit. Aircraft of this version were equipped with an air filter designed for desert climates. RAF used them for fighter-bomber missions in North Africa and the CBI operations theatre.

Kit 40005 Hurricane Mk IIc trop 1/48 scale includes three markings options:

  • Hurricane Mk. IIc trop “Hurribomber”, LB792/C, No. 34 Squadron RAF/SEAC, Dergaon (Assam) i Imphal (Manipur), spring 1944, pilot S/Ldr C.P.N. Newman.

  • Hurricane Mk IIc trop, HL885/AX-Z, No. 1 Squadron SAAF, Lt. Stewart “Bomb” Finney, LG142, Egypt, September 1942.

  • Hurricane Mk.IIc Trop, HL851/GO-P “The MacRobert Fighter-Sir Iain”, No. 94 Squadron RAF, El Gamil airfield, Egypt 1942-43.

It was one of the aeroplanes planes funded by the widow of Lord Alexander MacRoberts, Lady Rachel Workman MacRoberts. Their three sons died in air accidents, two in RAF service in 1941. The presented aircraft belonged to four machines transferred to 94 Squadron and was named after the youngest of the Macroberts’ sons, Iain.

The markings on the picture present the aircraft before all squadron code letters are painted. The modeller can use markings decals on three stages of squadron code painting (no codes as it was delivered,  partly applied and with all codes).
