Sindlinger Hawker Hurricane

sind-hurri


Designed by Boeing engineer Fred Sindlinger in the late 1960s, the prototype was built ahead of any drawings, subsequently put on paper by two draughtsmen - one in metric and the other in imperial. Sindlinger’s 5/8-scale version of the British Hawker Hurricane first flew in 1972. Both the wings and fuselage are constructed of wood with a fabric covering. The powerplant turns ~ metal constant-speed prop and is fed by a main fuel tank just aft of the firewall, with a. capacity of 14 gallons. Optional 10-gallon tanks can be built into the wing root. The landing gear is a steerable tailwheel type with the main gear retracting into the wings. The pilot sits under a sliding canopy.
