Agreed, st24. It would be a shame to lose a unique colour scheme. Plenty of other schemes available instead of dressing up another Mk. II as a Mk. I.

Hmmm... Surely the defining thing about pegs is the fact she is a Hurribomber??! As much as I adore the best fighter of WW 2.... I hope we don't get a diluted Battle of Britain - a-like.


Me too, but a 6 Sqn IID would also look very different and be exciting!

I would love to see her as a IID but the general feeling is that she'll be converted to a two seater. Hawker Restorations have been looking at such a project for some time and the language used "will emerge looking very different" adds weight to that. Time will tell.

They already have an airframe earmarked for the two-seater project and are also looking for an investor to help finance the build.

New colours, perhaps of a foreign country?

Yep! Maybe a Mk II in Yugoslavian colour scheme masquerading as a Mk I? Perfect for the Cosford RAF 100 ! :hide:

Well I'm hoping they keep it as a IIb because I was keen for it to be displayed as a Hurribomber with replica bombs attached etc! :surrender: But will be on the phone to Hawker Restorations soon to see what they have planned...

Same here, as she was the main attraction for me - however I doubt it :-(
