| Description

By 1943 the RAF needed a dedicated ground attack fighter, and the Typhoon was suited to the role. The powerful engine allowed the aircraft to carry a load of up to two 1,000lb (454kg) bombs. From September 1943, Typhoons could also be armed with four, eight or in some cases even 12 "60lb" RP-3 rockets.

Despite its fearsome reputation as something of an airborne battering ram, you might think that pilots flying the mighty Hawker Typhoon might have chosen to embellish their aircraft with aggressive looking artwork, to further enhance its notoriety. In actual fact, it is thought that just one aircraft benefited from the addition of shark mouth nose artwork, even though it proved particularly effective on the front profile of the Typhoon.

brilliant

due to the lockdown and the fact that i can't be bothered with jigsaws or watching YouTube with the kids, i thought i would build a model for the first time in nearly 30 years to see if i still enjoyed building them well i wasn't disappointed with this one, it is brilliant, easy to follow instructions and fits very well together, highly recommended to all. Although i would echo the invasion stripes comments and have decided to paint them on myself. in fact i have enjoyed it so much i am carrying on and have ordered another plane to build.

Brilliant Overall Kit!

This kit was simple to build but still contained challenges that the average and even experienced modelers might encounter. (Some interior details: which were brilliant in design) The pieces are well molded and fit together with minimum sanding and little to no areas were fillers are needed. The amount of detail is something out of a 1:48 kit crammed into the frame of 1:72. The number of options provided with this kit is unbelievable. The decals are stunningly printed and vivid contrasting well with any paint schemes one would like to add. The panel lines are well defined and don't require definition.

But the amount of detail inside the guns mounted in the wings is something to be truly admired, the choice is yours, so do whatever, this kit will shine with detail.

Even if you are not a very experienced modeler, or have been modeling for years, this kit is for you. A solid sturdy kit that produces a stunning model but a great amount of fun and entertainment building.
