I build models for the exciting project : Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group who are restoring a genuine and what will be the world's only flying Typhoon MKIB. There's been a bit of a rush on lately with customers wanting a quarter scale model of the Typhoon! So I have ended up building four at once! Three mar2ked as the actual airframe 'RB396 although they wanted invasion stripes on her which she never had: therefore there is some artistic licence going on!; and the fourth one is the aircraft that first trialed the use of Napalm bombs in the UK which was flown by David Ince who sadly passed away this year. However the timing is perfect for these four as I have organised in partnership with Romsey Modellers a special Typhoon display at SMW 2017 next week, which is aiming to spread the word about the project, so if your off to SMW please come and see us either at the Typhoon display or at Tangmere Sector Modellers display in the same hall. The kit I used is the Italeri which is quite basic but goes together well and is enhanced by eduard cockpit set. Iv used Mission Models paints for the first time which worked beautifully: Decals are from xtradecal and their RAF number and letter set.
R Spreckley posted a topic in The Display CaseThis build was commissioned through the Hawker Typhoon Restoration Project http://hawkertyphoon.com/ who are aiming to restore to flight the world's only MkIb. All proceeds for the build go directly to the project. This one's abit special as it is for the son of GR Capt J R Baldwin, so I am honoured to be doing this for him. As usual Arfix kit is sublime with little fettling in putting it together. It is just a shame all that detail gets closed up! I used my go to paints: vallejo air and used Tamiya pigments for weathering. Monte masks supplied the serial and nose art.
