View Full Version : I found a Hurricane Mk1

10-10-2005, 04:19 AM
I was at my parents this weekend for my youngest brothers 33rd B/day. Went in to my old room & was looking through the cupboard for some profile cards we had back in the 80's. I came across a Revell 1/32 scale Hurricane Mk1 model still in the box un made. Model number on the box is H-217 you could make either R.Stanford Tucks ' BoB Truck' (DT-A) from 257 Sqn or a PR Mk1 from 73 Sqn in the Med. My mother won it at our school fete in 1977 or 78. I looked at the Revell site & shock you can't buy it any more. Now I don't know whether to make it or see if it's worth any money????? Anyone know were I could go to see if it's worth anything???

Tried that. No 1/32 hurri's there or ANY of the model maker sites either. there was a 1/32 scale model (modern) and it was going for $10 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

OK then it is priceless!

Tell you what keep if for a hundred years. And then you know what you'll get?




OK next guess. Find a forum that is haunted by model makers and ask them.

I could be wrong but I reckon its not worth a lot more than an equivalent new model so Id decide based upon whether youd pay that amount for one.If not flog it-or keep it for longer!Ebay is the place to look alright...

Is it this one?
(At ebay, $5)

Keep it, build it! It's nice!
(This one's a 1/24th scale though)

Five bucks! The petrochemicals in it alone are worth more than that!

The 1/32 Hurricane MkIIc (1986) is going for $20 to $25. I haven't found a MkI but other '70s kits are around $28 to $32. Not finding the MkI, however, could mean it's a little more valuable (rarer).

Good luck. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
