  1. Hello all, Here is my entry for this GB. As per the title, I'll be replicating two aircraft that have had responsibility for the Northern QRA for the United Kingdom - the Tornado F.3 and Eurofighter Typhoon. Both these kits were initially part of my 'RAF QRA through the years' project but that was getting a bit long in the tooth and having recently visited Lossiemouth, playing about with my first proper DSLR camera and various lenses, I wanted to build these separately. So without much further ado; Kits: The Typhoon will be marked as ZK306 of 1(
  2. Hi all May I present the latest build, the Italeri/Hasegawa Typhoon. I posted a WiP which is here for anyone interested: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235081953-italerihasegawa-typhoon-ib/. I think i'll leave WiP to those that are doing something more adventurous with their kits in future as I don't think i offered much in mine but I think it helped me finish the build a bit quicker if nothing else (1 month)! This kit threw a few things at me but unusually it was mainly the painting (I had to re-do the fuselage stripes as put them in the wrong pla
  3. Hi All! I finished this kit recently and I have to say - I was very impressed with it. It's one of the better new-tool kits from Airfix in my opinion, having some great details including open gun bays! I was still getting to grips with my new airbrush and the Humbrol paints I used didn't airbrush so well, but I think it looks ok. What do you think? I know there are lots of little things I could have done to improve this (removing seams here and there etc) but it looks pretty good on my shelf The video here features the full build of the kit, th
  4. The German air force has been looking for a Tornado replacement for some time and now it looks as if a decision has been made: https://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/inland/bundeswehr-deutschland-will-eurofighter-und-f-18-beschaffen-16697183.html https://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/inland/kramp-karrenbauer-ueber-tornardo-nachfolger-bis-ostern-entscheiden-16699549.html At the moment, it looks as if Germany is to buy 45 Super Hornets and 78-90 additional Typhoons (known as Eurofighter over here). The split purchase is explained by the fact that the Tornado serves in four roles
  5. After the Tempest and the Yak-3 a Special Hobby well known representative is reported having said at the Eday2016 the Czech company is working on 1/32nd Hawker Typhoon, Hawker Sea Fury and Westland Whirlwind kits. To be followed. UPDT - Westland Whirlwind thread: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235015220-132-westland-whirlwind-by-specialhobby/ V.P.
  6. Hawker Tempest Mk.V (03851) 1:32 Revell The Tempest was an attempt by Sidney Camm's team at Hawker to resolve the promising Typhoon's main shortfalls, which although they were few, were important enough for them to warrant throwing a lot of time and money at their resolution. As far as attempts go, it was pretty successful, but it left us modellers with a fairly confusing array of designs that look substantially different from each other, let alone the Typhoon. The over-thick wing of the Typhoon had resulted in too much drag, so this was ditched and r

  8. D-Day Air Assault (A50157A) 1:72 Airfix This release represents a continuation of Airfix's long-standing policy of drawing on their vast and diverse back-catalogue to produce themed box sets to commemorate historical events. Many of the current sets have been around for a while, to mark both the 70th and 75th anniversary of D-Day/VE Day. This set is the counterpoint to the Sea Assault set we reviewed a few months ago and contains a Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib, An Austin Tilly and BSA motorbike, a Beford fuel truck, a diorama base and some RAF figures. Unsurpris
  9. Hello my friends; I finished my last model in this weekend. It's is a new simple Airfix mold. I did modifications including a lot of adds: - CMK engine; - Seat, wheels, control surfaces, exhaust by resins Aires and Quickboost; - PE interior and flaps by Brengun; - Master Pl cannons and; - Tail wheel scratched. I built a simple base too. I had doubt about the insignias diameters (upper wing surfaces), but even so I ended up using the Airfix decals. I had no options here. The mark is No. 266 Squadron, 2nd Tactical Air Force, Holland and
  10. Just finished Revell's 1/48 Typhoon in the 60th Anniversary markings of Taktisches Luftwaffengeschwader 71 "Richthofen". Built OOB with the addition of a Hasegawa Phantom pilot and Phase Hangar Resin's APU exhaust. I used AK extreme metal for the exhausts, AK Real Colour FS35237 and RAF Barley Grey for the main body and radome respectively. Decals went down really well with microset and microsol. A few small creases but nothing the sol couldn't sort out. It's the first time I've had such an extensive decal scheme so I'm quite happy with the results. Hope you enjoy...
  11. Hi! Long time no see. Recently finally finished a project that was on my table for over a year. Had not enough time due to work, business, two kid ans wife, but an hour here, two there and managed to finish this diorama. It's based on a scene from a computer game Escape from Tarkov, strongly recommended (game, not the scene:) ). What's on diorama? Takom's Kamaz Typhoon-K, few random figures bought on wish and aliexpress, crates and palettes laser cut by Bartec Design (that's my small business!), rest is scratchbuilt. Road made using AK Interactive Asphalt paste,
  12. Hello, Here's my just finished 1/48 Hawker Typhoon Ib. It's the Italeri rebox of the Hasegawa kit. The Hasegawa kit is not without its issues, mostly around the cockpit, but Italeri added a whole bunch of more trouble. For some reason they included the 3 bladed prop only, while all the decal options are for 4 bladed ones, as far as I could find. The same goes for the horizontal tail surfaces, only one type is included, although I haven't researched if these are the original ones or the later Tempest type. Therefore they might be incorrect for my build. Other problems were the exhau
  13. Lockdown has me back from uni, with vast amounts of time on my hands. So, time to dabble back into the world of modelling for the first time in a few years. This Typhoon has been sat on the shelf for a while, with decals to make the 2015 dispay jet flown by Jonny Dowen from 29sqn. Hopefully shall post this as the kit unfolds, so you can see the trials and tribuations of trying to remember how to do this... Step 1, cockpit and seat, with a first crack with an Eduard Zoom set, with a pilot currently undergoing some hefty plastic sugery
  14. A question regarding the under wing bomb racks as used by Typhoons. Would they have been the same as those used by Spitfires? I have a 1/72 Academy Typhoon and was thinking of using the bomb racks found in the Eduard Spitfire kit. Think this will work?
  15. Just finished this line of aircrafts, all build out of box. From the new Airfix line and a joy to build fit is exelent. Decals fra Aviaeology, super decals, with all the reference material that you can dream for. Cheers Jes

  17. I couldn't resist picking this one up at Telford last year (at the price, I had to ask to see if they were a 'dodgy batch' or something) and when I opened up the box and had a look at the parts, I just couldn't resist starting it (despite having a Lightning F6 and U889 on the go also - they will have to wait, I'm afraid). I love what Airfix has done with this one and it represented fantastic value for money with all the detail involved (I should've got two really). I wanted to know where I was heading with this from the start, so spent a lot of time looking in books and askin
  18. Hi, With the Seafang stuck on a missing part (my fault) and the A-26B Invader stuck on a missing part (less my fault - as I got it off eBay) - I'm starting another build. The box I happened to pull out of the stash comes from the 'cheaper' side of it - kits I got for lower prices that I plan to use as part of my training and getting more skilled process. It's a 1/48 Typhoon - another WWII favorite with a very distinct look. As a Hasegawa - I expect good fit and ease of build - I just hope the decals are still good to go. Ran
  19. 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
  20. Hawker Typhoon Car Door - Desert & Luftwaffe Trials (BRP72039) 1:72 Brengun In the design process even before the Hurricane reached squadron service, the Typhoon was initially intended to be a direct replacement, but with development scope to take advantage of the upcoming 2,000hp piston engines that would be near the pinnacle of propeller powered flight. Initial problems were overcome, and the early razorback design was amended to a bubble canopy that gave the pilot a vastly improved view of the sky around him. A larger, strengthened tail following a near dis
  21. Hello, I am building the Airfix Typhoon. I have a query about the upper wing roundels. The decals scale out to match a 50 inch size roundel. To me this looks too big and it overlaps the edge of the leading edge wing lamp. Wikipedia indicates a 42 inch roundel was used as an exception to the standard on the Typhoon up to January 1945, and then all 2nd TAF aircraft were changed as detailed below: “Type A.1: FromJune 1940: Single and twin engine fighters, light and medium bombers 35 inches. Exceptions: Hawker Typhoon 42 inches, Westland Whirlwind 28 inches. Heavy bombers, transport airc
  22. Hi Folks, Quick question, I hope you may be able to help. I'm in the final stages of building the Airfix 1/24 typhoon. I opined the package that contains the canopy parts only to find that there is a crack on the front edge. Reading on a few forums I see that this can be a common fault. The kit is over a year old and I can't get any help from where it was purchased. I contacted Airfix but they informed me that part was not available. I also found a replacement after market part but I can't get a reply from the stockist. Any ideas??? Tha
  23. Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib 1:72 Airfix The Hawker Typhoon started life as a medium-to-high-altitude interceptor intended to replace the Hurricane in RAF service. It was designed to meet Air Ministry Specification F.18/37, which called for an interceptor based around the formidable 24-cylinder Napier Sabre engine. As well as a more powerful engine, the aircraft also featured a much thicker wing than that used on its predecessors. This gave the Typhoon tremendous strength and also allowed it to carry more fuel and armament than either the Hurricane or the Spit
  24. I had not planned on posting this model here due to its age and lack of detail, but with so many other recent Typhoon threads showing just magnificent models, I decided I would show one that isn't that great. I have no idea just how old this kit is; I know it was issued in the early 1970s at least. So, it won't have the features found on today's great models. But, perhaps we can see how much improvement manufacturers have made since then? At any rate, she is what she is and represents both an earlier era in scale model kits, and my earlier attempts at building them too. Some
