Next one to be built is this, the Airfix Hawker Typhoon. Will be using the kit decal as I thought the kit ones supplied with my Spitfire went on fairly well, but will be using the Brengun photo etch for cockpit and flaps, Master barrel set,  Aviaeology stencil data decals, quick boost resin exhaust and Aires resin tail plains and wheels

That's all the pictures I had taken before the photobucket situation started, needless to say its now at the start of the painting process.

Decided to paint the leading edge yellow stripe rather than use the decal, and the flap sections need a fair bit of work to get right

You don't se the Brengun kit that often, but from what you show it looks like a good kit.

Great paintjob som far!

D'oh!

I misread your opening paragraph!

Ok, so it's the Airfix kit. Well, that's a good kit in itself, so no worries there :)

Update.

Upper surfaces painted, and now masked. The Brengun flaps have been positioned as the few photos  I found show of a Typhoon with flaps lowered.

The Brengun etch has ribs for the underside of the wing above the flaps but in the few picture of flaps down that I found it appears not to have exposed ribs.

A bit more progress, the leading edge stripes are good on the upper edges but he lower side is less convincing, may have to correct..

Got the decals on a few days ago after sealing the model with Future, used the kit decals for the specific one and the Aviology stencil set for the remainder. They look nice and went down well for the most part but I think I could have gone for another coat of Future. Also tried the silver pencil technique for chipping, I think I have reach a believable level of wear without going over the  top.

Now for the usual slog with the smaller finishing parts, next up will be the resin wheels and prop

Looking mightily fine. Looking forward to the end result.

A bit more to report, resin wheels on look much nicer than the Airfix ones. Launch rails fitted, still undecided as to fit the rockets themselves. Done an oil paint wash for the first time on this one, easier than using the Humbrol wash I had used on the previous models. So just the canopy to finish and resin exhausts to fit and weather, a flat clear coat and I should be done.
