1/24 Airfix Typhoon Mk Ib

Recommended Posts

Long time lurker on here so I thought I'd post up some of my recent builds. Here is my 1/24 Typhoon that I recently finished. Whilst it was a marathon build, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Additions are the Airscale instrument decals, HGW harness, Master Models rockets, Eduard wheels and cannons. All markings were painted using Montex Masks. This was the first time I had used them but I've got to say I'm converted! Hope you like.

Finally, here is one on its base at Salisbury Model Show, eventually it will be busied up a bit with ground crew, pilot, missing cowls and general clutter

The Airfix Typhoon in the scale has wow factor and you've done a great job with it.  Just out of interest, who's figures are you using to represent the ground crew?

 

thanks for sharing,

Cheers Mark,

 

I've got the 1/24 Tamiya rally pit crew as my ground crew. They're pretty much the closest you can get to WW2 RAF overalls in 1/24 but will probably need a little fettling and putty to remould certain features.

Very nice. I'm impressed with the engine and gun pit detail. In this scale, I can also read the stencil markings. Sometimes not sure if I've got them upside down on my 1 72 builds.:drunk:

Love those invasion stripes: you are one of the few who understand how they were applied - and rarely (in real life) with anything but a paint brush and not much time.

 

And the rest is pretty cool too. B)

 Excellent idea! Look forward to seeing how you get on with that.

Hey! I recognise that Tiffie! And it looks every bit as good on here as it does "in the flesh".

That shield in the background of one of the shots also looks very impressive - whose name is on it for this year? Clearly a highly talented modeller...!!!

One of these days you can show me how to post photos onto this site and I can finally prove that I also build the odd thing.

Nick.
