  1. These have been built for a family member of P/O Handyside. He flew both marques and was awarded the DFC on D Day for destroying five armoured vehicles threatening to over run an allied position. The kits are a Hasegawa Hurricane with conversion, and the Typhoon the sublime Eduard Ltd Ed.
  2. Here is my 1/48 Monogram classic Hawker Typhoon Mk.1B built for the Hawker (Siddeley) Group Build. Its OOB with a few extra details, plus the addition of a spare Tamiya pilot figure. The kit decals were in a poor state so I replicated the markings in CorelDRAW and home printed, except for the small white markings and the Tiger image all of which caused me a few problems and occasion to issue forth the odd expletive I also had to hand paint the large yellow 'Fs' because I couldn't get anywhere near a dense enough print. The weathering and staining is done with oils over the decal sealing gloss coat. The general idea was a trip down memory lane and an 'Old Skool' build, so apart from the primer and the final matt coat its all hand painted, I also tried out some paint effects to try and suggest structure and break up the flat areas of colour a bit. This is a truly fun kit to build and goes together very accurately despite it's age. I would highly recommend this kit as a mojo restorer or as just some light modelling relief.
