Revell's 1/32 Typhoon MkIb

Recommended Posts

After the great Photobucket debarkle of 2017 which has left many posts void of images I have decided to upload a few of my old builds for you to enjoy. Starting with Revell's 1/32 Typoon MkIb. I re-scribed all of the panel lines, made my own wingtip lights and added HGW seatbelts and finished off with Montex paint masks.  Hope you like it.

Cracking build and finish and the 'chipping' effect which is so easy to overdo, looks just right.

 

Great 'Tiffy' mate!

Could you please explain the unpainted/white paneling on the fuselage?

Great build. painting and weathering of a golden oldie, I really enjoyed building mine, apart from getting the canopy to fit !

 

Cheers

I enjoyed building mine too. I found the canopy a reasonable fit, but when I pulled off the masking I cracked it significantly. You can just see it in the photos on the starboard side. Thanks for your kind words.

Lovely build and thank you for sharing. I think Revell could not go wrong reissuing this oldie, warts and all as you have proved it has potential.

Superb finish Noel, she looks very fine indeed.  I've got one nearly finished, built pretty much OOB though I thought the prop blades were a tad too wide so taking careful note of reference pics I thinned and narrowed mine down.

Funny you should mention that, as I was doing some running repairs I dug out this resin set from MDC.
