I used the internal Airfix kit provided parts and frames. The rest of the Ribs, Stringers, Longeron, Horizontal and Vertical stabilizers are all hand scratchbuilt using Tamiya Plaplate Plastic sheets and Rods to match the kit scale profile. They are finished Painted in colors to represent wooden metal parts. 

The model is mounted on support jacks to represent the Hurricane production line that was on a factory floor tracks. The base is self constructed and painted black to fit a matching transparent storage case. This build is to depict the early Hawker Hurricanes production lines.
