I better participate in this GB as I voted for it. It is a great topic with so many great choices to model! But as the Typhoon is one of my favored aircraft, it was an easy choice for me. The first of four entries is a 1/48 Hasegawa Typhoon Mk.IB R7752 from No.609 Squadron, flown by Sqn Ldr Roland Beamont, from Manston in March 1943. I am not 100% sure which version of Beamont's Tiffy I make, but most likely the one with the yellow cannons. I will use the Hasegawa kit together with the Jaguar Detail Set (now available from Barracuda), Aires wheel wells and Techmod decals for the small markings and some other stuff if it will enhance the model. I will paint the roundels and squadron codes with my own masks. Cheers, Peter
Hi, this will be my second entry and I reall yhope I can finish it in time (would be the first time I finish two kits in one GB but hey - this should be workable): My Eduard boxing of the 1:48 Tempest was a special offer by A2Zee and included Alley Cat resin pieces like wheels and a corrected tail: I will build it as Roland P. Beamonts Tempest. Rene Edit: Forgot to list - the kit canopy will be replaced with the Rob Taurus vacuformed canopy.
