  1. This build was commissioned through the Hawker Typhoon Restoration Project http://hawkertyphoon.com/ who are aiming to restore to flight the world's only MkIb. All proceeds for the build go directly to the project. This one's abit special as it is for the son of GR Capt J R Baldwin, so I am honoured to be doing this for him. As usual Arfix kit is sublime with little fettling in putting it together. It is just a shame all that detail gets closed up! I used my go to paints: vallejo air and used Tamiya pigments for weathering. Monte masks supplied the serial number and JB II masks. You can follow the build and see more photos on: https://www.facebook.com/Mancavemodelsathome/
  2. Have been working on four parts for a diorama which will include a Hawker Typhoon, Matador 0854 with Cole Crane Mk V11, a Willys Jeep and a Accumulator, this will be shown with the Typhoon engine hanging from the crane hook, being just replaced with a new one, I hope I can catch the moment. Have bought all the aftermarket stuff I think everyone knows what is out there. First picture is what I want to capture, photo is for reference only. [/URL] Cleaned up a lot of the seams, filled a few holes etc etc and then painted aluminum [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] Machined the shaft out of brass [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] Started to add some detail to the controls [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] Until next time, Regards Richard
  3. Well here she is. A labour of love, only additions are an Eduard cockpit, Yahu Instrument panel and HGW fabric seatbelt.
  4. Hello Chaps, It's been a while since I posted, but my excuse is, I've been busy with hosting "Buddy Builds" on YouTube and Facebook. My latest buddy build that began on July 1st and ends on December 31st is called "The Spiffy Tiffy" buddy build....it's going pretty well so far with 37 participants and 47 models being built. I'm building two "Tiffy's", the first I just completed this week- a 1967 tooling, the Monogram 1/48 Hawker Typhoon Mk.1b, and on Monday August 7th, I'll be making a start on the Airfix 1/24th scale kit! This Monogram kit is as expected for a 50 yr old kit, raised panel line and rivet details, minimal detail in the cockpit, but, with some TLC, the addition of scratch-built seat-belts, a whip antenna, a UHF antenna and some fuse leads for the rockets, it can look reasonable. So here she is...I hope you like how she turned out If you'd like to see my "Full Build + Final Reveal" video for this build, here's is my YouTube link to it: Cheers, Martin
  5. Hi, Not another 1/24 Scale Airfix Hawker Typhoon, I hear you say, sorry, but yes. There are some excellent Typhoon builds here: Dances With Wolves being one. In my club I am know for doing something different, mainly rusted, or post apocalyptic stuff, you may have come across this: or this: So I am going to do my Typhoon as a museum restoration, inspired in some respect by the "Hawker Typhoon RB396" restoration, they have some great reference images. Where to start? I want to show as much of the fantastic interior that is hidden, and a restoration diorama is perfect for this, but it will require cutting up the fuselage (some of you will wince at that thought), and as it is a large model, I will remove the wings as this will allow me to have a smaller foot print on the club stand, and make transporting the finished article easier. Here are few pics to give you an idea of what I'm aiming for: Here are some pics of the work done so far: Removed the wing spars. Front spars cut off. Marked out the front section of the fuselage to be removed.... Test fit to see how it looks, it works... Then filled in the holes with plastic card: Let it dry then I will cut it match with the fuselage. Going to finish off the pilots "cage" tomorrow, need to add a few bits of additional stuff to the cage, for example the piece of metal and brackets that the panels would have fixed to, see image below: Thats it for now. Cheers Richard
  6. Well a good friend of mine has asked me to build this amazing kit. So I am venturing out of my comy 1:48th zone and going large! There are a few aftermarket additions, namley the Eduard Interior PE, HG Fabric seatbely and Yahu instrument panel. I ambuliding MN666 'CG' which lead one of the first rocket attacks on the beach head on the 6th June 1944. This I hope is going to be a bit special, so I am going to take my time with this one! So I have started after giving everything a good warm wash. It is going together beautifully!
  7. This aircraft is something close to my heart as I am the membership and events secretary for the Hawker Typhoon Preservation Project, We are aiming to get the world's only flying Hawker Typhoon MkIb flying again. This kit is the superb Hasegawa kit with Eduard cockpit upgrade,and 4 prop spinner from Ultracast. The aircraft was delivered to 174 ‘Mauritius’ squadron on 4th Jan 1945, based at B.100 Goch, and received the code ‘XP-W’. RB396 was lost on operations and was recorded Cat ‘E’ on 1st Apr 1945. Originally equipped with bombs after conversion to the Typhoon (July 1943), 174 squadron converted to rockets by January 1944. The squadron spent the next few months attacking radar stations, flying bomb sites and German communication links in northern France. After D-Day they moved to Normandy providing close support for the Army and attacking German tanks and transport. By September 1944 they had moved to the Netherlands where their remit was offensive sweeps over Germany. On the 1st April 1945 RB396 was the mount of Flt Lt Chris W House setting out from Goch for an offensive sweep. Shortly after selecting his target and releasing his salvo of rockets RB396 was hit by flak, too low to bail out and rapidly losing height Flt Lt House force landed his aircraft to the North East of Denekamp. In the immediate aftermath of the attack the whereabouts of Chris House was not known and as squadron members returned to Goch they reported that he was seen to successfully force land RB396 and it was assumed taken POW, had he survived the landing. He had indeed survived and successfully evaded capture, making his way back to allied lines and much to the surprise of his comrades arrived back at the squadron on 5th April. After 174 squadron was disbanded on 8th April Chris House went on to complete further operations and remained in the RAF until retirement long after the war.

  10. Typhoon TP-Z 'MM987'

    RNoAF submitted the following query "Hi guys. Can you help me with the colour and markings of 198 squadrons Hawker Typhoon MM 987 TP-Z? And did it have a 3- or 4-blade propeller?" I suspect that this originates from one of the profile drawings in Osprey Aircraft of the Aces 27, Typhoon and Tempest, which I wrote and Chris Davy illustrated. I was very keen to illustrate Sqn Ldr Johnnie Baldwin's Typhoon TP-Z which featured in press photos taken some time in late February of early March 1944 and carries his scoreboard with 13.5 kills. Unfortunately neither his logbook nor the squadron records enabled identification of the serial number of this aircraft. Knowing that there were few sliding hood Typhoon in service at this time I examined the records of all the unit's Typhoons at the time and MM987 seemed to be the most likely. The profile was duly completed and I noted the tentative identification in the extended caption in the Colour Plates section at the end of the book, also noting that the aircraft had been in an accident on 4 March 1944. Years go by ... and I am in touch with the pilot of MM987 when it had the accident and his log reveals it was actually coded TP-V! dammit. The recent postings re PR-Z took me into this territory once again so I will see if I can find another suspect. Meanwhile, a question for RNoAF. Are you interested in TP-Z (Baldwin's aircraft with the kill markings) or MM987, now known to be TP-V? Both, incidentally had 3-blade props and the small tailplane. Chris Thomas
  11. War Weary Hawker Typhoon

    Afternoon BM's. Finally finished Airfix's new(ish) Hawker Typhoon 1B. I opted for the later 1944 option in the kit armed with rockets and adorned with D-Day landing stripes as I've not done a model with these on yet. I tried a new chipping technique on this one which has given mixed results. Personally I think it's overdone but lesson learned. I opted to airbrush the yellow wing strips, D-Day stripes and band around the tail which was the right thing to do, as in my opinion the decals with this kit are as thick as card and they would have looked miserable. Built out of the box and made my own harnesses. Enjoy, comments as always welcome.
  12. Hawker Typhoon RB396 Restoration Project

    Not sure if you are aware but there is a project to rebuild a Hawker Typhoon to flying condition. If successful this will be the only flying Typhoon in the world. If anyone is interested - they need your help and support. The project is on Facebook - just look up the Hawker Typhoon RB396 Restoration Project or take a look here (website is being updated) http://hawkertyphoon.com Go and take a look and if interested, follow the progress of the project or take a more active part...
  13. Australian Typhoon

    During the Second World War, the Royal Australian Air Force used many Hawker Typhoons in Europe. These were all painted in the standard RAF Day Fighter Scheme and are quite familiar. With the exception of the prototypes and development aircraft I can only think of three non-standard Typhoon schemes - a development aircraft which was painted in the desert scheme, an aircraft painted in the green/grey night fighter scheme and a postwar aircraft that was in natural metal. I've always thought it was a shame that Typhoons didn't appear in a wider range os schemes. During the latter part of the war, the RAAF was heavily involved in mopping up resistance in Borneo. Spitfire VIIIs were employed in the ground attack role. Attrition was quite high as the aircraft were not really suited to the role. What if the RAAF had managed to get an aircraft which was suited to the role? This is the Hobby Boss 1/72 Typhoon, painted in RAAF colours... The kit comes nicely packaged and, as the box suggests, is intended to be a easy build... in fact, it's pretty much snap together. The sprues Notice that there are two sprues for the prop, one with a four bladed prop the other with three.
  14. Hello and thanks for your interest! This is my latest model, the 1/72 Airfix Hawker Typhoon, dressed as "F-3A 'Diane'", serial number MN716, flown by Pilot Officer R.G. Fox in November 1944. The model was built from the box, the only addition was photo-etch seatbelts from CMK. Decals are from the Aviaeology sheet "RCAF Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB 1944 to Bodenplatte" (https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/AOD72008). The Squadrons covered are No 438, 439 and 440 Sqns during 1944 through to operation Bodenplatte. The series covers nine different subject aircraft including one car door version and eight bubble canopy versions. Aviaeology include an exclusive on the two sizes of the early “type B” upper wing roundels. Aviaelogy supply far more than your average aftermarket decal sheet, in fact it is a multi-page b/w booklet with background info and b/w pictures of some of the aircraft featured. A colour PDF version of the colour scheme is available for free though registering on the Aviaeology Web Site. The decals are of highest quality and perform flawlessly. However I did manage to break up the correct "F3" codes for this particular machine by mishandling them; I had to fall back to another "F3" code that has a slightly different font. I guess you would not have noticed unless you're an expert on 2.TAF aircraft (or you work for Aviaeology). Former squadron codes ("5V") were overpainted; I copied this by spraying the "5V" codes with dark grey through a paper mask before applying the "F3" codes over it. If you look closely, you will notice that the "F3" codes look brighter then the code letter "A" - this is intentional as I believe only the "5V/F3" code was changed. I tried to replicate the tatty appearance of the invasion stripes on the lower fuselage. The model was painted with Gunze acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel, IGM Cars & Bikes.
  15. Hawker Typhoon 1B Tropical Trials Unit Conversion 1:48 Red Roo Models Serious thought was given to the use of the Typhoon overseas once the problems with the engine, and rear fuselage structural problems were resolved. The proposals were first mooted in 1941 but not acted on until Winston Churchill raised the issue of them being used in the MTO. By mid November 1942 the aircraft was ready with a modified air filter being fitted. However due to engine failures and other accidents the programme was delayed. By 1943 three aircraft (R8891, DN323 & EJ908) were fitted with the new experimental filters and ferried out to the Middle East for trials. By the end of September 1943 the protracted trials were considered at an end and the three aircraft released to 451 Sqn for general flying. EJ906 was struck of charge in February 1944 due to a lack of spares, RR8891 was lost when it struck the ground in August 1994, and DN323 was stuck off charge shortly after the crash of R8891 as it was considered no longer worth the trouble of keeping it airworthy! All there aircraft features the scheme of Dark Earth & Light Stone over Azure blue. There seems to be evidence of EJ906 wearing the code letter Y, but none for the other two airframes. The resin part though small is well cast. The decals look well printed, colour dense, and should pose no problems to the modeller. The modeller will have to use the kit, or their own national insigna. . A set of comprehensive notes and instructions are provided in addition to the decals. The conversion is for the 1.48 Hasegawa kit, though the guys at Red Roo tell us they are working on a 1.72 version as well. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  16. My entry for this GB will be this: Inevitable sprue shot: and this is the scheme I'll be building it as: This will be pretty much OOB, except for the Barracuda resin intakes and exhaust. I intend to build it flying so I'll be using some prop-blurs left over from my Mosquito build last year so the stand MAY contain some element of cotton wool
  17. Hell everyone, I thought I would draw attention to a project that I am loosely involved with but one of my friends is more closely involved. It is the restoration of a Hawker Typhoon MkI, serial RB396. The project is in an embryonic stage at the moment but some very exciting news is due to be revealed shortly. At the moment the project contains many individual parts, namely the fuselage, elevators, undercarriage and many small items plus a large amount of the aircraft drawings. The project will soon become a charity enabling donations but at the moment the greatest task is locating as many parts as possible, in particular a set of wings and cockpit. More information on the project can be found at: www.hawkertyphoon.com And the facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/hawkertyphoonRB396?ref=ts&fref=ts

  19. Hi, Two of my old kits - I still like them. They are much younger that Maryland - Hawker Tempest V - Heller/Airfix kit and Hawker Typhoon Ib - Frog kit. As far I I remember - Tempest is basicaly OOB except decals (red outlinings hand painted) wheres Typhoon was reshaped. I made smaller nose and spinner as well as re-shaped air oulet from cooler to make it similar to that of Tempest and I added bulb on canopy (this is a piece drop-like formed clear styrene glued just with Humbrol gloss varnish of the top of canopy. Perhaps there were some other operation which I do not remember now, after almost 20 years. Now I have in stash Airfix new Typhoon waiting for his turn... The Tempest is JN765, JF.K , markings of Squadron 3 RAF, P/O Kosh, Newchurch, UK, Summer 1944. It is like that: Typhoon is RB224 US.H "Land Girl" in markings of Squadron 56 RAF, Matlaske, UK, after March 1943 (name hand written): Comments welcome Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
