    Of particular interest to the hobbyist is the excellent color artwork which depicts many of the camouflage schemes and markings found on Hurricanes that served in many theatres of operation. Also,the chapters labeled as “In Detail” feature excellent detailed, color images of the fuselage, canopy, cockpit, wing, engine, tail, undercarriage, and armament of the Hurricane.
