Hawker Typhoon IB 1:72 *Finished*


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I’m 0/2 for group builds this year. Hopefully between this and my Airfix GB defiant I’ll get some hobby mojo back. Not 100% settled on which aircraft yet but hopefully will get started soon as I’m waiting for some aftermarket bits to arrive from Mr Hannants.

A package arrived today from the kindly folk at Hannants and with a day off work, the kids at school and the wife at work, I’m not going to waste this opportunity!

An afternoon? Holy smokes Batman, that much progress takes me a month!

 

Looking good thus far.

A bit more progress today and some paint added.

 

Helpfully every hobby paint company seems to have a slightly different interpretation of ww2 colours (using a mix of enamel and acrylics to build layers and see if I can add some tonal differences)

Another coat of Ocean Grey on tonight. A bit miffed with the brush strokes. An object lesson in not rushing maybe…

Camouflage on weathered/faded and seal with a satin coat. Its all Coming together now. Just needs to dry then have a bit more weathering added before final assembly.

I think she’s done…

A nice kit and looks the part but certainly fiddly and frustrating at times (especially the disintegrating decals and I’ll have nightmares about the leading edge stripes that wouldn’t stick or settle and getting the rockets to stay on the rails….) time to let it all dry and settle then pics to go up in the gallery tomorrow… Thanks everyone for joining me on this journey and thank you to the team for this great group build (and for helping me finally complete a build this year!)
