Airfix 1/24 Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib Kit #A19002- "Teardrop Canopy"
Posted by UKguyInUSA on Saturday, February 09, 2019 1:27 PM

Hello Chaps,

 

Here's my "Final Reveal" photos of the Airfix 1/24 Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib that my wife bought me for Christmas 2014...I finally made a start on it at the end of of 2017 and completed it in January 2018, a year ago, but never got around to posting it.

A superb kit with tons of details and a very enjoyable build. 

All out of the box, except for the scratch-built whip antenna, Eduard fabric seatbelts and scratch-built fuse cables coming out the back of the rockets.

 

Cheers,

Martin Smile

If you'd like to watch my YouTube video "Build Series" for this kit, then here is the link to the set of vidoes showing you how I built it from start to scratch:

Martin, what you've done here is way above my pay-grade! I can't imagine trying to accomplish a build like this. Just breathtaking. Thank you for sharing.

OK. On the bench:

Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Well done . I like the the oil streaking underneath.
