Designed initially to replace the Hawker Hurricane as the complementary 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, the Typhoon has a tough gestation before maturing as a capable, low-level fighter-bomber, devastating German armour in Normandy and beyond.

Airfix Starter Sets are ideal for beginners.  Medium Starter Sets are a little more challenging to build than the Small Starter Set range, with more parts.  Each Medium Starter Set includes glue, two brushes and six acrylic paints.

Paint Scheme - Hawker Typhoon Ib, No.266 Squadron, 2nd Tactical Air Force, RAF, Holland and Germany, April/May 1944

Typhoon

I really enjoyed building this model. The typhoon is a really iconic model and one of my personal favourites. It was very easy to build and had fairly good tools for a starter set. I chose to fit it with bombs and fitted the rockets to another aircraft, which was highly enjoyable. A great model.

Typhoon starter

This went together really well on the whole. I had some issues with the canopy, but nothing else to fault.

Nice and fun, overall.

As a model builder that is really starting to get into building aircraft, this was a nice kit to get me acquainted with painting camouflage. The kit went together very nicely, and once finished, ( Decals, paint, etc.) turned out great. Overall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfHCBO_OSlk
