Hawker Demon, K2905, 41 Sqn, C Flight, RAF Northolt, Autumn 1934
Product Code: AA39602
This model is now due for release in 2013.
The Hawker Demon represented the fighter variant of Hawker’s very successful and popular Hart family. When introduced, the Hart was so fast that contemporary RAF fighters could not intercept it so it was requested that Hawker produced a fighter version – the Demon. While some were equipped with turrets for the rear facing armament, the majority had a single gun on a flexible rear mount, with forward armament of two .303 machine guns fitted, one either side of the nose. Over 200 were produced for the RAF, serving until just after the outbreak of the Second World War. Formed in 1916, 41 Squadron is today one of the oldest serving RAF squadrons. As well as being based at Northolt, the squadron used its Demons on air policing duties in the Middle East.
