1:48 Hawker Hurricane MkIV & Typhoon MkIb P/O Ian Handyside DFC184 Sqn RAF Westhampnett

Recommended Posts

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.

Very nice, would i be correct in thinking, that the hanging leads would catch on the end of the launch rail and thereby arm the rocket as it went off?

These are just superb!  Great finish and flawless execution and you have the best use for the models that there could ever be.

No, they are electrical leads that are plugged in "last minute".

Nice!  I'm a little bothered that the leads don't hang straight down but I'll get over it.👍

Maybe they're just captured swinging in the breeze  :D.  They look great.

Both very well done models. I have never noticed a rock carrying Hurricane before.it looks rather different. 👍

Two gorgeous Hawkers there Rich.

Interesting dimensions on the Hurricane’s underwing roundels.

 

Cheers

Great looking duo. I like the markings on the rockets. I did the same kit earlier this year but chickened out & left them green. The kit is a re-box of the Hasegawa Tiffie so quality is assured.
