  1. Hi Adrian, thanks for the kind comments. If you like these, there are some more photos of Typhoons that I posted on Thursday 12 Jan under the title of Typhoon Single Seat. Additionally, I have a thread currently running on the Work in Progress forum under the title Typhoon Twin Seat. I will upload some more in the near future. Kind regards Andy
  2. The other day I uploaded a number of photos of Typhoons. Here are some more for reference purposes, both general and detail shots. For those currently building or are about to build I hope these are of assistance. Regards Andy Nose gear looking king from the port side. It is worth noting that the colour is is pale gloss greys Undercarriage looking front to rear. Again note the angle from the vertical of the main undercarriage. Nose undercarriage age looking starboard to port Main undercarriage Looking from front to rear. Note the angle of the undercarriage from the vertical.

  4. Hi Sheepie, Here are some detail photos along with some general ones, including BE in the pouring rain on the taxiway. I have also attached some photos of the undercarriage up close for you. Regards Andy BE basking in the British summer! The flight line The flight line again How the main undercarriage sits. Starboard main undercarriage, looking rear to nose of aircraft.

  5. Hi Sheepie, As promised here are four photos of the undercarriage position for the Typhoon. I am currently working on uploading some up close and personal Typhoon photos that will also assist you. These will be done later this afternoon. In the meantime...

  7. Hi, this is one of my current projects (the others being a twin seat Typhoon and a F2 Banshee), although I am building the F-100C kit from Trumpeter. I can personally recommend the Eduard detailing seats for the exterior, cockpit, and undercarriage. I look forward to seeing some photos of your build. Kind regards Andy
  8. Hi Sheepie, I will gladly post a photo of the undercarriage, although it will be tomorrow to get it in the best light. The best way to describe the main undercarriage is that they lean inwards, however a photo is worth a thousand words. More photos of the real thing will follow tomorrow. So, please, stay tuned!
  9. Hi, I am just coming to the end of a build of the twin seat Typhoon 1/48 from Revell and have used the kit intakes. However, I am using the Eduard Typhoon External PE set to blank off the intakes and the exhaust port on the port side. These are relatively inexpensive and look good. Furthermore, there is a great deal of extra detail. I would recommend buying the twin seat on as it is the same as the single seat, but offers more external detail than the single seat set. Regards Andy
  10. Hi, I recently posted on the WIP forum my attempt at the twin seat Typhoon from Revell and I promised to post some photos of Typhoons, which I have done. These are some general photos (I'm sure there are better out there) that I would like to share, which Illustrate some of the details of the aircraft.
  11. Hi Sheepie et al, Please find below some photos of Typhoons on the flight line. These are mainly single single Typhoons, however apart from the extra seat, spine, and canopy they are externally the same. Please note that the HUD only glows green when aircraft is powered up.

  12. Antti_K, you know what, every day is a school day! It's information like this that makes this site so useful. Canberra Kid, thanks for you extremely valuable input. I now feel that I can approach the building of WZ397 with a greater degree of certainty. Many thanks Andy
  13. John, thanks for your highly informative link, which is extremely useful. With this in mind, is my assumption correct that Airfix have mistakenly omitted the oblique camera windows. The only two photos I have seen are WZ392 and WZ397 with the oblique windows either in the open position.
  14. Hi Chrish, The kit was a joy to construct, with only the wing root needing some filling. It was the adding the brass aftermarket products that took the time. Additionally, the fitting of the new resin rear fuselage took some time. However, the adding of these bits was self inflicted. Kind regards Andy
