Beautiful. 

 

Why does it have a? instead of a code letter? 

It was the Sqn Leaders personal code I believe

Awesome!  

 

In addition to the Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group (www.hawkertyphoon.com), also check out Typhoon Legacy Co. in British Columbia (www.typhoonlegacy.com) - these guys are building one up from just a data plate...

If you can get in Smith's have a look at the current Flypast. Oh dear ... I think it is in a plastic bag.

Man, you got it goin' on Rich! :clap2:  Incredible scale model sir; I had to scroll back up to the title to confirm that it wasn't 1/32 scale. 😀  You are a gifted builder Rich and your talent extends to figure painting as well, an area that intimidates me so.   This is a superb Typhoon. :worthy:

Stunning build, the level of detail I would have thought this was bigger scale than 1/48. I do love the little touches such as the mud up the wing left by an armourer.

Now just STOP IT!

 

This passing off Airfix 1/24 Typhoons as 1/48 models has to stop!
