    Default Hurricane Mk I L1780 - L1780/G - help please

    My name is Santiago Hrubisko and my father's name is Raúl Hrubisko. We are from Argentine.

    We will appreciate if someone could assist us with information regarding the Hurricane Mk I L1780 (later L1780/G). There is a photo of this Hurricane on the book “The Secret years 1939-1945” from Hikoki publication showing an installation of the first British Ups (unrotated projectiles later RP – rocket projectiles). The photo of the L1780 shows that she was a Mk I but unfortunately the serial number cannot be confirmed. None of the books that we have consulted mentioned anything about the L1780 or L1780/G. We have try to find more reference of this Hurricane without luck.

    The book calle "The Hawker Hurricane" wrote by F. Mason state that the first installation of rocket projectiles for flight trials by a Hurricane was carried out on a Mk IIA Z2415.

    We would really want to include the L1780 or L1780/G in our current project which is make a sub collection of the Hawker Hurricane showing all the version, the different schemes and markings, etc. Right now we already done 33 out of 103.

    Many thank in advance

    Kind regards
    Santiago Hrubisko

    Hi Santiago,

    I can not help you with this question, I suppose some of other members will do soon.
    Anyway I would like to say that the photos of unusual Hurricanes from your collection are really marvellous and very well done (without dummy shadows etc.)!

    Really nice work.

    Pavel

    P.S. May I ask you from where your family ancestors came? Your surname seems to me like the Eastern Europe.

    Hi Pavel

    Many thanks for your kindly comments regarding our models.
    Sorry but I don't fully understand what you mean with "without dummy shadows".

    I hope some of other member could help us with this issue.

    My grandparents were from Slovakia. The came to Argentine before the WWII.

    Kind regards
    Santiago

    Amazing Satntiago! Many thanks.
    Yes I was thinking that your relatives came from Czech Republic or Slovakia, so my guess was right:-)

    The part you can not understand - simply I wanted to say that your photos looks very professional.
