  1. 609 sqd

    Is it possible to build a 1/72 scale Hawker Typhoon from 609 sqd? Just visited Yorkshire air museum, great place but made me wonder
  2. G'day All, A question for those who have built Airfix's masterpiece, the 1/24 Typhoon kit. Do you think it would be possible to fit the cowlings over the complete engine (i.e. fully built engine for display) by thinning out the plastic of the cowlings in the areas where they interfere with the engine? I really can't decide which way I would like to build the kit. I love the complete shape of the Tiffie and would like to build it all closed up, but I also would love to build and display that wonderful engine detail as well. I've been toying with the idea of thinning out the cowlings and using small magnets to hold them in place so that I could have my cake and eat it to but, unfortunately, it would mean having to build the kit with the full engine detail (including building the magnets into the structure during the build), before I could get to a stage where I could see if the idea was practical or not. So, for those of you who have some experience with this beast, what do you think? Could the cowlings be thinned out enough in the areas where the detail gets in the way? (I'm not worried about any sort of realistic detail on the inside of the cowlings. I'd be fine with various divots etc where it was necessary). Thanks for any thoughts and advice. Cheers, Motty.

  4. Afternoon all, I've just finished the Airfix 1/24th. Typhoon, which I purchased at Perth this year for the princely sum of £50. Here's some pictures for you to gawp/marvel/laugh (delete as appropriate) at.

  5. MPM SH32049 boxart: http://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=97&t=71717&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a translation: Main parts from short run and small details from metal mould.
  6. Hey Guys, So speeding along now! Built my first aircraft about 2 weeks ago (though uploaded much later here) and now here i am again having finished Airfix's lovely little Typhoon bubbletop. Construction was on par with Tamiya - that being you just shake the box and the bits fall together. The only real issue I had was fitting the fuselage halves together but considering I'm new to this game I'm sure its my inexperience rather than the kit! I painted her with Hannant's brilliant Extracolour range enamels which with a beautiful gloss finish prepared the surface nicely for the decalling stage. Weathering was simple, I thinned raw umber oil paint and ran it into the panel lines before wiping away. I coupled this with some basic metal chipping with Humbrol Metalcote Aluminium. Compared to my last (and first) aircraft build which was the Spitfire, I think I've come on a few steps and I'm quite pleased with the finish! Thanks for looking! Sam
  7. Hi fellow modellers, this time I present you this kit I finished some days ago. It´s the well known Airfx Typhoon IB in 1/72nd. A good kit very straightforward to build. The only thing I have to complain about airfix is that some small parts are too thick, and decals are hard and thick too. I painted the invasion stripes for this reason. I hope you like it and every critics and comments are welcomed! best regards. Ignacio from Uruguay.
  8. Hawker Typhoon - Construction Details

    Hi, I am about to start on the Airfix A19002 Hawker Typhoon, but this will be a museum restoration diorama. Some of you may have seen my Heinkel He 111 on the model show circuit: I posted some pics back in May 2015: Being new to modelling aircraft; figures, rusted vehicles & post apocalyptic are my usual thing, I was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of some good reference material, books, websites etc, on construction of the real thing. I want to make this diorama as accurate as possible, as much as some of you on here who have made the finished article. I have Richard Franks "The Hawker Typhoon" book on modelling the Airfix 1/24 scale kit, which has some great pics of a real Typhoon in bits, this leads to some questions: Is the MkIb fabric, metal covered or a combination of both, is so which parts of the plane are covered in which material? Where does the wing attach to the central fuselage, is it the same as the Hurricane? As the build progresses, I'm sure I will have more questions, so suggestions, help greatly appreciated. I will be starting a build thread on this project very soon and will post the link here. Many thanks for reading this. Cheers Richard
  9. Italeri Typhoon 1/48 - Out of the box build other than the Eduard zoom. (I did the 'Jasper' version in memory of my beloved dog Amber, who I miss every day.) I did this about a year ago and it seemed to go down surprisingly well on Scalemates, so…. Warning – Waffle ahead. One of my many brother-in-laws is called Tony Fellows. Why am I telling you this? Because his dad was an RAF fighter pilot during WWII – 'Nibby' Fellows. He flew many different aircraft during and after the war (apparently second only to Eric 'Winkle' Brown in the different types he flew). The Typhoon was a particular favourite of his. On 17 July 1944, he was flying his Typhoon over Normandy looking for something to pump lots of holes in. He saw a German staff car with motorcycle out-riders, so he attacked – doing the aforementioned hole thingy. This is the exact day, and in the same area, that Rommel suffered major head injuries as a result of being strafed in his staff car. Some other pilot got the credit, but me and my brother-in-law know the real story (well, our version of it anyway). Unfortunately my brother-in-laws sister threw away most of Nibby's service stuff, including his flight books and many photos (he was a member of a crash investigating team after the war) so his claim can't be proved now. Nibby claimed the 'kill' long before the Allies knew of Rommel's injury, so I don't know why it was attributed to another pilot. Thanks for looking.
  10. Long time lurker on here so I thought I'd post up some of my recent builds. Here is my 1/24 Typhoon that I recently finished. Whilst it was a marathon build, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Additions are the Airscale instrument decals, HGW harness, Master Models rockets, Eduard wheels and cannons. All markings were painted using Montex Masks. This was the first time I had used them but I've got to say I'm converted! Hope you like.

  11. Hi all, A good friend made some incredible pictures from German Aircrafts in Neuburg and Manching. Neuburg is the home of JG-74 and Manching is the place German Eurofighter Typhoon are build http://petesmancave.blogspot.de/2017/06/petes-mancave-news-62017.html Have fun with the pictures. Cheers! Pete
  12. My latest "arms length" build. Original tool Frog Typhoon. While mine is the header card version from the 70s the tool itself is from 1959 I believe. Other than using Xtradecals and blocking off the oil cooler with a bit of plastic card it's entirely box stock. Like my previous Frog Hunter it has no wheel wells. Unlike the Hunter there is no pilot head molded in, the cockpit is simply a large hole. I used Tamiya acrylics for all colors and decided to keep the weathering to a minimum. Panel lines, like my 109K, are basically mechanical pencil with 2B lead. I realize it's a far cry from Airfix's new offering but I still enjoyed building and painting it and will eventually build the better Airfix kit which I also have.
  13. Hi all, I know this is the third RFI I have posted within a short space of time but because I got the new lightbox I have been able to take better photos of my completed models. The tiffy was a pleasure to build with no real fitting issues at all. Built OOB with the exception of some super fabric seat belts, airbrushed in my usual way with Vallejo Model Air
  14. If anyone is interested, we have a batch of 4 of these kits in stock for under £30 At this point in time, we're not sure when we can restock on them as our supplier has run out of them, so be quick if you still want one! thanks Mike
  15. Hi gang, right time for another build. I've had this in the stash for a while, and bought the excellent Aviaeology decals when they came out. http://www.aviaeolog...m/aod48003.html I mean a Tiffie with a sharkmouth? - what is not to like? I also bought a truck load of Ultracast parts to enhance the build at the same time. Then I hit what I thought was as tumbling block, and put the whole thing on hold...until recently when a chance discovery in the spares stach, tipped of by a post on here, re started the project. Little needs to be said about the Hasegawa Typhoon. Apart from the cockpit infills, it fits really well, and has no real vices. I've built 2 of them already so this is a chance to add some extra bits too. So in no real order - here we go: First - the cockpit infills. Experience suggests that adding these to each fuselage half first so they are flush, making good the join lines and rescribing is the best way to deal with the less than ideal fit. Here you can see this done, which gives a smooth join on the fuselage sides, but will leave a small gap on the fuselage centre line join. Nothing a plastic shim won't fix though. A damn sight easier than having no gap at the top and a step on the sides! I've also opened up the foot and hand holds on the side too. Inside the moulded detail has been removed as I'll be adding my own. Here is the resin feast that is Ultracast's sonata to the Tiffie: All well cast with no pin holes and fantastic detail. The wider Tempest tailpanes are a simple push fit, and de rigeur for any very late war Typhoon, while the exhausts are a drop fit replacement and a great improvement on the kit parts. They are also, in case you ask, much nicer than the Quickboost resin exhausts ( which Ive used before) being the correct size (the QB ones have always seemed just a tad small to my mind). The seat features a cast-in late war "Q" harness, and as the cockpit opening is rather small this will be a a really obvious bit. Wheels have really nice detail, and the new radiator part has the late war "cuckoo" filter - again a must for a Tiffie from this period. Now for that stumbling block I mentioned. The rocket rails. We are all used to the Tiffie Mk I steel rocket rail with its gently tapering front and twin horizontal launch rails. Here's one attached to a Sherman - yes I know! All Hasegawa's rocket Tiffie boxings come with these.( Mk I rails that it is not Shermans!) However from late 1944 onwards the MkI rails were replaced by the lightweight MKIII aluminium rails. They look very different, as you can see below. And my particular carcharadontic Tiffie, MR-U MP197 245 sqn, shows 2 of the MKIIIs fitted under each wing with a long range drop tank. The MKIII rails are quite fine with subtle rivet detail, and I wasnt amazingly convinced I could scratch them convincingly. While there are some MKIII resin rails available from Airwaves, theres a snag with these.... However I stumbled over a BM thread about Mossie rocket rails, which also showed MK III rails, and as I had bits left from a Tamiya Mossie in the spares stash, a quick check revealed 8 MK III rails sitting unnoticed in the box. Huzzar!!!. The attachment stubs are different for the Tiffie, which is the problem with the Airwaves et - as these seem to be MK III rails attached to Mk I stubs, but thanks to the gracious help of "Mr Typhoon" Chris Thomas - some e-mail pics quickly allowed me to modify and scratch a prototype, Cheers Mr T! Its needs little refining - but I think I know what I'm doing now. Well I hope I do anyway. More to follow..... Cheers Jonners

  18. Hi everyone Last weekend I had some time off from work so I decided to clean out and remodel my workshop.... ....and in doing so I found a plane I started 3 years ago the Hasegawa 1/48 Hawker Typhoon 1b which as the title says will be built as MP197 using the rather lovely decals from Aviaeology AOD48003 Typhoon Special. At the time I had the Barracuda cast cockpit upgrade..... ...which in my opinion looks lovely, its just a shame most of it will never be seen again! Oh and for those observant amongst you you would have noticed the head armour is missing, I broke it off many moons ago but I still have it and I'll reattached it nearer the end of the build. General model pictures..... ....my 1/24 version is still on going but it is my long build so I need smaller stuff to keep me sane!

  21. I have been working on this model since July this year following a summer camp at RAF Conningsby. By chance I photographed BE taxiing out during a heavy downpour. I was soaked but it was worth it to obtain some excellent photos. The twin seat interior and cockpit etched sets from Eduard have been used, however I had to trawl the internet to get hold of them. I found them eventually in the USA and Germany.
  22. Revell 1/48 Eurofighter

    About to start the Revell 1/48 single seat Bronze Tiger Eurofighter. I have been reading about the intakes and they are meant to be nightmares. Is it work buying the Heritage resin intakes. Seen them for £14 online (plus £6 postage!!!) or just go ahead with the current ones. I've also read opening up the vent in the side and using a straw to make the pipe. How much do I open it up? One last thing! I bought a scriber as ther eneeds to be a panel on the side. Does anyone have a diagram of this or shall I just look at photos cheers Adrian
  23. Typhoon Single Seat Photos

    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.
  24. Hi All! Been a while since my last post - hope you all had an awesome Christmas and New Year. Managed to find some time to get back into a bit of modelling recently Please check out this video and let me know what you think of the build I quite like building planes at this scale, but feel that this one was a bit dated. Not bad build though in my opinion. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance for your criticisms
