Airfix Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB

typhoon (6 of 20)

Scale:1/24  – Build Time 4 months

Highly detailed, a beautiful and stunning kit, finished as a battle scarred worn out plane after the events of d-day and the task of controlling the skies over northern Europe.

Cut outs show the detailed machine gun magazines and highly detailed engine. I Cut out a little more to show the cockpit, controls, pilots seat and forward bulkhead. This build took just over 4 months and required extensive hand painting of all the detail and wear and tear.
