    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    These early machines were somewhat rushed into service and it was discovered that a number of modifications would be desirable, if not totally essential. Perhaps the most noticeable difference from the later models were around the canopy area - the first Typhoons were supplied with a forward opening 'car door' style cockpit entry for the pilot which even included a wind down window. The pilot also had a transparent roof panel, which hinged open to the left and some machines had the addition of a rear-facing mirror, on the canopy frame.

    Some of the other options this new version will allow are:

    The new 'car door' style canopy structure
    Earlier 'car door' pilots seat
    Alternative main undercarriage wheel
    Pneumatic tail wheel
    Alternate cannon fairings for the guns
    Different internal frame structure
    500Ib 'Long Tail' bombs
