This aftermarket set, for the 1/24 Hawker Hurricane with Hispano Mk II 20mm cannon with round recoil springs, comes in Master Model’s usual packaging. The 3 different types of parts are in their own bags, with all these bags and the instruction sheet inside another sealed bag, with a card stiffener. All this is then stapled shut as well with a card header.

The instructions are straightforward to follow and clearly laid out. You cut 2 mm off the fairings as molded on the winges and drill 3.5 mm holes. You then assemble the cannon as shown in the instructions. Use cyanoacrylate when building them. The set contains turned brass barrels and aluminum elements for 4 cannons.

The quality of the brass is very good and this will definitely look nice on your 1/24 Hurricane.

The set is available for approx $18.00 US.

Many thanks to Master Model for the review sample.
