| Description

Initially designed to replace the Hawker Hurricane as the complimentary high-altitude fighter to the Supermarine Spitfire, the Typhoon instead found its fame as a low altitude ground-attack aircraft, spearheading the airbourne assault through occupied Europe after D-Day. Designed around the enormous 24 cylinder Napier Sabre engine, the Typhoon has a tough gestation before maturing as a capable, low level fighter bomber, devistating German armour in Normandy and beyond.

Love the Tiffy!

Best Airfix kit I've built to date! The only quibble, and it's a minor one really, is the hole for the foot-step is missing from the fuselage! Had so much fun that I bought 2 more!

Well Engineered Kit

As mentioned this kit has some excellent detail and the fit is outstanding, even with the relatively complex interior. I couldn't get the invasion stripe decals to conform to the wing leading edge, other reviewers have commented on decal issues but this was the only rwal issue I had and it was minor. Though I still think I will stick to painting in future. The rocket projectiles are well moulded. Overall an excellent little kit.

An Amazing Model

Overall the model was excellent. The parts all fitted together nicely, except for the left wing, which I had to sand down so it would fit. The decals were all of high quality, and went on well. However the D Day stripes on one wing fell apart, and I ended up painting them on instead. The long yellow strips on each wing also fell apart, but I think that was due more to my lack of modelling experience. I would highly recommend this product.
