Never in the field of human conflict
was so much owed by so many
to so few.

- Winston Churchill

This model kit from Canuck Model Products includes markings and stencils for a CF-188A Hornet in the 'Battle of Britain' Scheme.

The tactical fighter backbone of the RCAF, the twin engine CF-18A 'Hornet' (officially known as the CF-188) has served Canada with distinction in hot-spot areas around the world. In 2015, Hornet 188761 was repainted in World War 2 style camouflage and markings to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of Canada's participation in the Battle of Britain, the air war campaign over English skies that helped change the course of the war.

Featuring tail murals of Winston Churchill and F/L G.R. McGregor, as well as an eye catching camouflage pattern, this Hornet will be an excellent addition to any modellers collection.
