Recommended Posts

Dear fellow Britmodellers,

here's my 1/72 Airfix Hawker Typhoon IB, with CMK weapon bay, Eduard seatbelts and Master gun barrels added, representing the aircraft of Squadron Leader Basil Gerald, 247. (China-British) Squadron, 124. Wing, 2nd TAF, Eindhoven/Netherlands, in December 1944.

Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics.

Thank you for your interest in this topic.

With best greetings from Vienna,

Beautiful build and finish!


The shading of the wing panel joints doesn't look very convincing to my eyes, though, and the variation in camo tones looks to me what it is – airbrushed, and not genuinely faded or worn. Just my personal opinion, of course. 😉


Kind regards,

Very nicely done! Not to my taste with the panel lines, but that doesn't detract from the quality of the work.

Hi My Friend Roman!!!

Have watched this new masterpiece and really have enjoyed what you have done with this little gem of a kit. There are some people who say many things in favor and against this particular kit, but in any way, I think you did justice with the wonderful job in it.

Congratulations for the nice looking job, liked a huge lot the weather and how it turned, and the very well-chosen accessories you have used here, just to enhance the kit’s appeal and also the great workmanship you displayed here together with the colors used and the overall finished job.

Thank you very much for sharing!!!

Hi Roman, I like very much what you have done with this, I'm thinking it is the box scheme, in which case my effort will carry the same markings, there the similarity will stop, I don't have the skills you do but I can be happy with what I do. :)
