  1. Brengun (http://www.hauler.cz/) last 1/72nd kit is a Hawker Typhoon Mk.1a, late & early variants - ref. BRP72012 Source: http://www.hauler.cz/e-shop/1-72-plastic-kits-28/typhoon-mk-ia-1052 V.P.
  2. 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 aircraft 49 inches.” However the same article also says “January 1945 to June 1947: On all 2nd TAF aircraft, Type B upper wing roundels were either converted to 55 inches (140 cm) type C1 roundels or over-painted and 36 inches (91 cm) type C1 roundels painted on. “ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Air_Force_roundels A 55” roundel would be even bigger than the decals supplied in the kit! 58mm in 24th scale. My guess is that the 36 roundel might actually be the best bet, but there seems to be some confusing information out there. That scales out at 38mm in 24th scale. Much smaller than the 53mm kit version. Both card door and bubble kits have the same size decals. This size is repeated in the Eagle Cal decal sets too. Nowhere can I see info which says that a Typhoon carried a standard 50 inch roundel. Surely they can’t all be wrong?
  3. 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??? Thanks for your help Simon
  4. 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 Spitfire. The Typhoon was rushed into service in an attempt to counter the threat posed by the Luftwaffe's then-new Focke-Wulf Fw 190. This proved to be an unwise decision when the immature design ran into serious difficulties, culminating in an incident In August 1942 when Hawker test pilot Ken Seth-Smith was killed when the tail of his Typhoon broke away during a test flight. The problem was eventually traced back to the elevator mass balance, which necessitated some re-design work. Although never trouble-free, the Typhoon matured into an effective low-level interceptor, successfully countering the threat of the Luftwaffe's 'tip and run' fighter bomber raids. The Typhoon's story didn't finish there, however. It was perfectly suited to the fighter-bomber role and following the Normandy landings it was used for both tactical strike and close air support for troops on the ground. Although responsible for a relatively small percentage of the total number of German AFVs destroyed in the months following D-Day, the effect that rocket and cannon strafing attacks had on enemy morale was profound, drawing compliments from the Supreme Allied Commander himself, General Dwight D. Eisenhower. Over the years, the Typhoon has been a popular subject for modellers. Early kits from Frog and Airfix were superseded by Academy's very decent effort in the 1990s. More recently there has been a series of kits from new Czech firm Bren Gun. Airfix released their kit in 2013, and apart from making an appearance in the occasional model sets, this is the first time the kit has been re-boxed by Airfix. The kit is presented in the familiar bright red top-opening box adorned with a beautiful image of a pair of Tiffies taking off on a summers day when the sun is low in the sky. Four frames of plastic are crammed inside the box, together with a small clear sprue, decal sheet and instructions. All together, the kit is made up of a respectable 74 parts. It looks nicely moulded and the panel lines look reasonably restrained, but some of them fade out towards the very top and bottom of the fuselage. It's clearly not as good as a brand new kit from Airfix, but that only serves to show how far they've come in a few years. The overall shape of the model looks good. As with many Horby-era Airfix products, the kit offers an interesting mix of detail, design and straightforward construction. This is evident right from the start, as the cockpit floor is moulded in a single piece along with the main landing gear bays and the interior parts for the prominent chin radiator. The cockpit itself is comprised of a seat, an armoured rear bulkhead, an instrument panel with separate gun sight, a control column and rudder pedals. There is also plenty of sidewall detailed moulded on the inside of the fuselage halves. The overall effect should be very nice indeed. The wheel wells, which also form part of the cockpit assembly, look good, with structural and hydraulic details picked out nicely. The only fly in the ointment is a small ejector pin mark in both sides. This will be difficult to remove, so I imagine a great many modellers will choose to live with it instead. The prominent radiator features a separately moulded oil cooler/carburettor intake and exhaust flap. The exhausts themselves drop in to place once the fuselage halves have been joined, which makes painting much easier. The tail wheel has to be fitted before the fuselage halves have been joined though, which may make it vulnerable during construction. Handle with care! The lower wing has been moulded as a single span and it must be joined to the fuselage before the upper wing halves can be fixed in place. This is a slightly out-of-the-ordinary construction sequence, so pay attention to the instructions carefully! The prominent 20mm cannons are attached to complete gun bays which fit inside the wings. The cannons are quite nicely detailed, but if you want to show them off, you'll need to cut away the corresponding panels in the upper wing and use the pre-folded replacements provided. The horizontal tails are moulded as solid parts, but the rudder is a separate part and can be deflected if desired. The undercarriage is very nicely detailed indeed and the tyres have flat spots moulded in place. A separate set of undercarriage doors is provided in case you want to build your model as it would appear in flight. A full set of rocket rails is provided, as well as separately moulded 60lb rockets. Also on the sprue is a pair of bomb racks and bombs. The huge four-bladed propeller is crisply moulded, with a further four parts used to make up the hub assembly. The cockpit canopy is nice and thin and is moulded in two parts, so all of that lovely cockpit detail won't go to waste. Two options are provided on the decal sheet: Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB, No.245 Squadron, 2nd Tactical Air Force, Germany and RAF Warmwell, Dorset, England, June-August 1945. This is the aircraft depicted on the box artwork; and Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB, No.121 Wing, Royal Air Force Holmseley South, Hampshire, England and B.5 Le Fresne-Camilly, Lower Normandy, France, June 1944. This was the aircraft flown by Wing Commander Charles Green and has invasion stripes. The decals themselves look thin and glossy, so hopefully they will prove easy to apply. Conclusion I remember that I liked this kit when it was first released, and I have to say it has aged reasonably well. Although it isn;t quite as sharp as the latest offerings from Airfix, it is well detailed, well designed and offers some interesting features, particularly the cannon bays for the wings. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  5. 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 of these pics were taken at the Cameron airport, but some were also taken at another small-town airport in neighboring Rockdale, Texas. The airport there once belonged to a local millionaire, H. H. Coffield. He had a bunch of WWII planes out there at one time including a couple B-25s and a few C-47s too. Supposedly he had hired an ex-Luftwaffe flyer to run a, ahem, "crop dusting" operation in South America...oookayy. There are two hangars and a pilot's lounge there. One of the hangars is very old (supposedly of WWII vintage) and makes a neat background. I met a couple really nice local pilots and had an enjoyable afternoon taking photos of several model planes. It was quite windy at the Rockdale airport though, and the Typhoon almost blew away a few times and the canopy did fly off several times. I put the plane away and came back to Cameron where it was a little less windy for more pics. The model is the old Monogram 1/48 scale Typhoon Mk IB. It was built more than twenty years ago now but had never been photographed before its trip to Rockdale a few years back. I did add some radiators underneath from an old '60s model car. The paint was Model Master and Humbrol enamel sprayed with my Paasche H. I used Parafilm for the first and only time for the masking. Other than that, it's just OOB Monogram from "back in the day". I appreciate your interest and thanks for taking a look at the old girl!
  6. 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

    Typhoon Tragedy?

    Hi all, I was looking through one of my old reference books (Camouflage & Markings) and came across this photo of bomb carrying Typhoons; The image stirred up a memory of seeing this photo, possibly on the internet, and a story about a Typhoon's bomb falling off shortly after the photo was taken... with catastrophic results. I just cannot remember where I saw the picture or exact details of the incident, it may have been a different photo altogether, or maybe I imagined it (I am getting older...). Does anyone have information on this? Thanks, Charlie
  8. You al know how it is. Once in a while, it doesn't matter that the stash is filled to the brim, that there's no more room on the shelf of doom, and the modelling table is filled with 1,2,3 - many ongoing subjects, sometimes you just need to clear everything, and take the latest and greatest purchase and go with the flow. In my case this happened with the enormous Typhoon. I've never built anything in larger scale than 1/48 before, and there was nothing in the stash of that sort either, but it didn't matter. I needed it, badly. It wasn't possible to resist a view like: Trying to battle the AMS didn't work either, which is why I've got the Airscale instrument decals and some Eduard goodies Let's make a start at it then! what could possible go wrong? Well, since my previous attempts at building Typhoons has been less than successful, my track record might not be the best, and its a BIG model! No matter, I'm filled with cheerful optimism, and neither the dreaded crack in the hood (got a new clear sprue from Airfix last week, which was as good as one can hope), or a rather nasty short-shot: will stop me this time. Everything is possible! Lets cut off a few pieces, clean them up! Rear spar is a little bent: Some heavy persuasion with brute force and glue should sort that out later on. I hope :-) Also decided to drill out the holes in the rear form(imf=er, just because I could. Edit: ARRGH! It's post preview one should click on, nothing else! Story continues: Well, all parts were cleaned up an glued together, and after a quick coat of Vallejo black primer, it looks quite ok actually. Quite a lot of parts was left out of the initial assembly, but also primed Citadel chainmail was sprayed next and I hoped that all ejector pin marks on the engine firewall is hidden later on... On to some other fun stuff. The floor boards were drybrushed and received a couple of washes: Main instrument panel was painted too, and prepared for a long session of small small decals from Airscale. A really large sinkmark in the middle of the compass was a cause for concern: but since it will all be painted anywway it was filled and sanded flat. After half of the decals had been added it started to look nice! Finally, all was installed in the cockpit And there we are! I've started the most challenging build ever, but I'm having so much fun! Luckily, I have 3 weeks of christmas vacation coming up and hopefully I'll be able to sneak of to the modelling den more than once, so even with my usual geological modelling pace continues, some progress is expected! //Christer
  9. Hi everyone and sorry for starting this in the wrong thread earlier! So it all started like this - my modelling mate and all round good bloke Barry had bought himself this beastie last year.. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/115168-trumpeter-01601-tu-95ms-bear-h Me, I was at the end of a year of F-14 builds and was deciding what to build next. When I saw Barry's Bear, I dropped him a message along the lines of... Cool kit, nice purchase Just how big is that thing?! Wouldn't it be daft to see it 'intercepted' by a 1/72 Tomcat! We thought no more of it, except for sharing photos of Tomcats intercepting Russian Tu-95s until Christmas came and I happened to get the these two kits as a present..(cheers Daiske) And what with Mr. Putin starting to act the eejit with his flights around the UK, Ireland and Europe, it had all come together lovely. Just like an A-Team plan - an RAF Typhoon meeting a Russian Bear bomber, somewhere over the North Sea. (Source: Wikipedia Commons, public use) So that's our plan - Barry builds the Bear, I build the Typhoon and they both get displayed on a diorama that probably won't fit in either of our cars (damn, just thought about that one). And if that all that wasn't enough, I also planted a seed in Barry's poor head about maybe motorising the engines on the big Russian... More about the engines (and some WIP pictures) later this week. Thanks for looking. Dermot & Barry (who's still thinks I'm a bit of a nutter for this crazy plan)
  10. Here's some shots of the sprues for the brand new 1/72 Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib from Airfix, you can tell they've put a lot of thought into the construction of the kit. http://www.wonderlandmodels.com/products/airfix-172-hawker-typhoon-mkib/
  11. 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 asking lots of questions (thanks very much for your patience, Chris!). I decided on Johnny Button's 193 Sqn Normandy 'Bomphoon' Zipp X in the end. I wanted to be able to see a full outline of the machine on one side and to still see some of the detail, so I'm opting to leave panels open on the port side only, including the lower cockpit panel above the wing. I've made a start on the cockpit. Lots still to do, though. Extra pipework and cables, bomb jettison lever, etc., to be added to this visible area on the port side. I'm covering up the oil tank so was just really practising to see how things go, (with the oil spill). I've been adding some panel mounting points and moving the position of others. I've also added a couple of pipes that I can see in photos. I hadn't noticed until looking at these photos that I'd left a locating lug visible in the seat bottom, so will add filler there. Great fun so far. Very absorbing. Cheers Bob.
  12. Just added the finishing touches to Airfix's 1/24th Hawker Typhoon MkIb this week: a project I've had on the bench for the last 6 months or so. Admittedly I've picked it up and put it down as and when I've felt like it, but regardless this kit is most definitely a long-term investment in regard to time and effort. I found it an absolute joy to build and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Fit was exceptional but you must follow the instructions to the letter, especially where the engine and its piping is concerned, as tolerances are very tight. The only after-market was a set of Eduard seat belts - everything else was OOB.

Paints were Xtracolour enamels with Humbrol flat as a top coat. Decals were from the kit and were excellent, bedding down well over the recessed/raised details without any problems. All in all, a fantastic kit - roll on the big Hellcat! Best regards, Tom
  13. Hi, here is my Typhoon from italeri/hasegawa kit
  14. 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 with interior green, so as to leave some darker areas around details and try and lend some depth. After that I picked out details using dry brushing techniques, as well as making use of prismacolor pencils, which make highlighting knobs and switches quite straightforward. Gradually moving towards a more complete cockpit. The instrument panel is made up of a resin casting, and three separate etch metal bezels, which are laid on top of three instrument transparencies for dials. I must say I'm pretty happy with how this has turned out so far. I still have to finish seat belts and add those, bit dry fitting shows that this assembly will fit very nicely into the fuselage.
  15. The great outdoors beckoned a little bit more than usual this year what with the glorious weather & a couple of decent airshows drew me away from the workbench. Also my modelling mojo or lack of seems to keep me away from the plastic fettling way too much. I'm also glad that I invested in a half decent airbrush, but still need more practice! Well here's my evidence that I do finish models! With all good intentions I've still got around another 12 builds on the go, & still purchasing more! 1/72 Hasegawa Royal Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4 ZK349 wearing B.O.B 249 Sqn markings 1/72 Revell RAF Tornado GR.4 ZA548 31.Sqn 2015 1/72 AZ French Air Force Dassault Super Mystere B.2 1972 Tiger Meet Cambrai France 1/72 Trumpeter Polish Air Force MiG-29 1.elt 56 Heroes Of Kosciuszko 1/72 Airfix RAF English Electric Lightning F.6 XR761 11/74 Sqn RAF Binbrook 1979 Thanks for looking!

  16. Here are my first ever completed builds on Britmodeller, not only that they are the first aircraft built by me in at least 20 years, like a lot of fella`s in their 50`s I cut my eye teeth on Airfix, Revel and Frog kits in my youth, I have learned a lot with these two, I`ve got more tools and "Stuff" than I had in my youth, and there is a whole world of AM stuff that wasn't around back then, there`s the internet too, but it`s finding the old Mojo that made the difference! These two were deposited in my lap by my Son when he was in junior school asking me if I would build them for him, well he`s almost 15 now and I finally got around to it.................

    Why car-doors?

    Hi! I just wondered why the Airacobra, Kingcobra and the early Typhoons had car-like side-doors? It probably made entering the cockpit easier, but since when was creature comfort a driving force in fighter design? Furthermore, pilots didn't seem to like it and it made bailing out rather more difficult than easier. Nevertheless, it was fashionable with aircraft designers at some time and there must have been some perceived advantages. But which? BTW, how many designs used such doors? I can only think of the Bell fighters (including the Airabonita?) and the Hawker Typhoon (including Tornado). Do you know any other? Any ideas welcome!
  18. I have already announced my intent to do two 1/72 Hurricanes but I figured I might as well tell you part 2. I will try to build the Revell, 1/32 Typhoon. Ordered some replacement decals (noticed the damage on the ones I have) and I will give this beast a try as my second Group Build kit. Greg in OK

  22. Early retirement has increased my build speed !! Here's a kit I've had in my stash for a couple of years. Went together quite well, straight from the box really. Paint was a bit of a mix Vallejo MA Barley grey+ white, I then tried some Mr.Hobby 334 Barley grey which seemed a bit weird to start with.....almost like varnish, seemed better on the second coat. Decals were ok to use but according to my research they are a little inaccurate. Pirate sensor was provided but not fitted till later in the aircraft's life I believe. Vallejo Satin varnish was the final quote. used some generic line decals for the AMRAAM stripes. I almost buggered this up at the last leg; after a gloss coat I decided to use some Vallejo Panel line wash, however it's apparently acrylic not enamel based so adhered to well to the outlying parts. In removing the excess I removed it from some panel lines inadvertently. Making a right-pig's ear of it . This accounts for the rather 'over-weathered' look for a prototype.....seems to be my trade mark of late. Anyway for good or bad, here it is !!: PS: It looks like PostImage has thrown a wobbler and the link addresses have changed to .cc suffix. I've changed previous posts to correct. What a ball ache
  23. Hi Gents. Can I ask if anybody please knows how far forward the control column goes on a Typhoon please? I'm asking as on most wartime parked Typhoon shots, the elevators look to be in the 'down' position (column forwards). On my Airfix 24th scale kit, the column is positioned roughly halfway between the leading edge of the pilots seat bucket and the instrument panel. If fitted without any alterations, the column is slightly angled back (5 degrees towards the seat) if using the horizontal foot plates as a guide. I can alter the column rods to the correct angle to show some 'down' elevator, but would really like to know roughly how far forwards this needs to be (either as an angle off 90 degrees to compare against the foot plates or a fraction of the distance between seat and instrument panel) if at all possible, please. Any help as always, very gratefully received. Cheers Bob.
  24. Hi folk's,making up my Hawker trio is the Frog Typhoon,It was cheap and I have spare decal's for it so whatever the kit turns up like(I've never laid eyes 0n this one) I can live with it,mine's a bagged version from the early seventies so I'll be wearing my striped tank top and flares for this one!
  25. Just finished. Absolute dog of a kit, not too sure if it was me or the kit, maybe a bad run, but it fought me all the way. Poor fit in many places including the radiator, wings to fuselage and cockpit pieces. I was very close to giving it up at many times but I'm happy in the long run I didn't. Build OOB with the exception of a QB seat and True Details wheels. Thanks for looking.
