This particular Hawker Hurricane is a very highly detailed fiberglas replica.

Here is some period Hawker Hurricane Youtube video with some gun camera footage at the end. This more current Youtube Hawker Hurricane video shows a museum Hurricane starting, doing a 6 minute run up, then taking off from a grass strip and doing a low level flyby. One more Hawker Hurricane Youtube video shows a Hurricane taxxiing, taking off and doing flybys at the Geneseo air show in New York state. Notice how quickly the gear comes up.
