  1. Just finished. Absolute dog of a kit, not too sure if it was me or the kit, maybe a bad run, but it fought me all the way. Poor fit in many places including the radiator, wings to fuselage and cockpit pieces. I was very close to giving it up at many times but I'm happy in the long run I didn't. Build OOB with the exception of a QB seat and True Details wheels. Thanks for looking.
  2. Frog Hawker Typhoon.

    Hi folk's,making up my Hawker trio is the Frog Typhoon,It was cheap and I have spare decal's for it so whatever the kit turns up like(I've never laid eyes 0n this one) I can live with it,mine's a bagged version from the early seventies so I'll be wearing my striped tank top and flares for this one!
  3. A BIG Typhoon coming

    I have already announced my intent to do two 1/72 Hurricanes but I figured I might as well tell you part 2. I will try to build the Revell, 1/32 Typhoon. Ordered some replacement decals (noticed the damage on the ones I have) and I will give this beast a try as my second Group Build kit. Greg in OK
  4. Hawker Typhoon Car Door

    I'm trying to find out more about the window in the "Car Door" on early Hawker Typhoons. Some authors suggest that this could be raised and lowered, like a car window. Despite much searching I cannot find either a photo of a window "half open" or even any authoritative confirmation that it was movable. Does anyone here know?
  5. Hello from Madrid!

    Hi, my name is Ricardo. I am from Argentina, but I live in Madrid since 11 years and I am an illustrator and sculptor. I build models from my childhood and about five years ago I had return to the hobby. Is something that I love and gets me to the remembrance of my father. So my interests are WWII models, airplanes specially, but I like to build anything with an engine. (in 2014 I had gone to the Flying Legends in Duxford and I get in love of the Spitfire!) Well, I've decided to make an experiment to try to post two pictures from my Flickr and it seems to work fine: My 1/72 Typhoon and Thunderbolt. The first one is from Airfix and the second Academy. I hope I can learn a lot with you and be able to share too... Finally I want to apologize because my English is not very good. Thanks! Ricardo
  6. Hey everyone I hope you all had a great Christmas and you all have an equally fab new year. I thought I'd show my meagre completed builds for 2017, there's only three so blink and you'll miss em! (there should be a forth my 1/32 Special Hobby Tempest II but unfortunately she has been consigned to the dark place, under my desk, never to be seen again......) My first finish for the year was a model I started 2 years ago the Hasagawa 1/48 Hawker Typhoon Mk 1b.... Next up was the Airfix 1/72 B17G finished as a RAF Mk III.. And finally my Tamiya 1/48 Mosquito.... ..And that my friends is that. Not much to show for 12 months work but at least its something I guess. In 2018 I will be starting my 1/32 B25 and Hawker Hurricane plus a couple of 1/48 scale builds I have in the stash. Cheers all and here's to 2018!! Iain
  7. We've managed to get our hands on a couple of the Eduard 1/48 'Ranger' Typhoon kits, just in time for Christmas! We didn't think we we're going to get any because after reading info Eduard, it appeared they had sold them all at shows and the rest to a few dealers (Neither of the UK Importers though!) a month or 2 ago. They're on our website priced at £31.50 each. The kit contains plastic parts by Hasegawa, a new injection moulded canopy by Eduard, as well as Eduard's usual resin bits, mask, etch and decals for 6 aircraft. We're not sure if we can get more of these at a future date, we certainly can't get anymore before Christmas as our supplier has none left. http://mjwmodels.co.uk/edk11113-148-hawker-typhoon-mkib-ranger-6100-p.asp thanks Mike
  8. 12 Sqn Next for Typhoon

    https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/12-squadron-named-new-typhoon-squadron/
  9. Latest effort - a car door Typhoon. I like the Typhoon, big ugly brute that it is, and for some reason the car door version really grabs me - don't know why - just like the idea of the car door complete with window wind down. I'm sure the pilots didn't like it much. Still - box Contents And a few extras I've decided to add to it. Starting with the cockpit I started by painting the cockpit internals black primer, and then sprayed individual areas with interior green, so as to leave some darker areas around details and try and lend some depth. After that I picked out details using dry brushing techniques, as well as making use of prismacolor pencils, which make highlighting knobs and switches quite straightforward. Gradually moving towards a more complete cockpit. The instrument panel is made up of a resin casting, and three separate etch metal bezels, which are laid on top of three instrument transparencies for dials. I must say I'm pretty happy with how this has turned out so far. I still have to finish seat belts and add those, bit dry fitting shows that this assembly will fit very nicely into the fuselage.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.

  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
