Hawker Typhoon MkIb 1:24
Item code: A19002
A super detailed 1:24 scale model of the legendary ground attack Hawker Typhoon MkIb. This fantastic model has been created using our advanced CAD design used on all our new models, and we think you’ll agree the results are stunning!
We're excited to unveil an exclusive video interview with the model's designer Sam Townshend, in which he shares a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how the Typhoon was developed.
If you're looking to add even more realism to your model, it is possible to add the 1:24 scale motor to this kit.

Introduced into service in 1941, the Hawker Typhoon was designed to be the RAF's new ultimate interceptor fighter. Superceding the Hawker Hurricane it was hoped that the Typhoon, together with the Spitfire, would be a powerful and effective opponent of the Luftwaffe. However, it was not to be. Initially plagued by mechanical woes from the engine and suffering from a deficit in performance at high altitude, the Typhoon instead found fame as a low level attack aircraft, a role to which it was both well-suited and hugely effective.
