As with the other kits, it was fun assembling the Hurricane. It took about 3 hours to assemble. Final construction was impressive, overall it is tough enough for daily play, only problem is the 4 machine guns which drops out at the slightest touch.The high quality stickers add on great details to the plane, however I did not apply the stickers for my set.
The pilot is a custom minifig, pad printed on both sides and and does not have weapons. Putting the pilot into the plane does take a bit of patience as its going to be a tight fit.
Overall, the design captured the essence of the Hurricane in LEGO with great accuracy. This is definitely a nice to have for Lego fans interested in planes of World War 2.
