The rest of the aircraft is made up of the IIb wings, rudder, and tailplanes from the Airfix 'Torch' Club Kit (A82014), the undercarriage from an 02082, and propeller from Quickboost.

Hawker Hurricane IIb Trainer
Flown in Northern Russia, possibly by the Free French of Normandie-Niemen, during 1942.

There's a very grainy photograph of this aircraft online, which is attributed to a book on the Free French flyers within the VVS.

Wow! I have never seen one of those before. Must have been pretty cold to fly too.

Nice one.
Always nice to see something different.

This one was a flying trainer.
I built a different version; a light attack one which had part of the under fuselage removed and the rear gunner had a fabric sling seat. Not much between him and the ground.
