  1. EDIT: This build was started in the Made in Britain GB, back in 2016. As usual with me, I didn't manage to finish it in time and it's been on hold till now. I'll try to finish it now. Thanks for looking Jaime ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi, This is my first entry to this GB and constitutes the first of a two part series.This one is Academy's 1/72 Typhoon Mk Ib, which i'll build in D-Day striped camouflage, as flown by Wing Commander R E P Brooker, the No. 123 Wing Leader. His aircraft was marked MN570 ‘B’. The second part of the series is a Tempest Mk V. Here is an article about Typhoon operations during the Normandy Invasion. There's a picture of the aircraft at the end of the article and here is a hi-res version. Here is a profile of the aircraft. The aircraft was armed with under-wing unguided rockets for ground attack. The Academy kit comes in a double boxing, commemorating D-Day, from which I already built the Spitfire Mk XIV. I'll be using Eduard's Zoom set for the Typhoon, as well as Quickboost's resin exhausts: IMAG1512 IMAG1656 I've already took the fuselage and wing parts off the sprues for a test fit. This was done back in March, when I was building the Spit and intended to start the Typhoon right after, which didn't happen. Regarding fit, everything fits well apart from a small gap between the front of the wing parts and the fuselage on the right side. IMAG1551 These parts, the tail plane parts and the control stick are now waiting for the build to start: IMAG1552 IMAG1553 In April I also primed and painted the resin exhausts for the Typhoon and the Tempest. This was done at the same time as I painted the exhausts for my Bf 109 G10, like shown in the next picture: IMAG1808 I used Alclad's Grey Primer and Alclad's Burnt Iron for the exhausts. The plan is to start building in the next few days. Thanks for looking Jaime
