    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.

    The Hawkwr Typhoon was originally designed as an interceptor, but its poor performance and structural failures of the rear fuselage at altitudes 20,000 feet almost ended its service at the start.

    Various changes were made to save this program. In late 1942, equipped with four 20mm Hispano cannon, external bomb load of up 2,000 lbs., and most importantly, the improved Sabre IIA engine, the Typhoon prooved that it could outperform the fighter-bombers in the Luftwaffe at low-level altitudes.

    In 1943, the Typhoon IB "Tiffy" was fitted with a bubble canopy to provide the pilot with unobstructed rear view. Its unsurpassed speed combined with the firing power of rocket projectiles made "Tiffy" an integral part of the Allied fighter-bomber group. The Typhoon's continuous low-level attacks on shipping and armored divisions contributed to the success on D-Day.
    Fully engraved pannel lines and rivet detail.
    Optional position canopy and landing gear door.
    Highly detailed cockpit interior and landing gear bay.
