Here we have a replica Hawker Hurricane rear fuselage, rear mainplane and fin for sale
Built by RRS Aviation, Hawkins, Texas. It was part of 2 Hurricanes that were built using original parts from 5 other aircraft which were purchased from Jack Arnold in Canada. Displayed at the Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio as Z3174/XRB it was sent Hawker Restorations who rebuilt the aircraft using original parts.
