Hawker Typhoon 1B Aircraft

This is a 1/72 Hawker Typhoon IB Plastic Model Kit from Academy.

Conceived by Sydney Camm to supersede the Hurricane as a fighter-interceptor, the Typhoon became famous as a low level ground attack aircraft. This was thanks to it's heavy cannon armament and ability to carry up to 2000lbs of bombs or 8 rocket projectiles. The Typhoon was powered by a unique H-configured 24 cylinder Napier-Sabre engine rated at over 2,000 horsepower. Typhoons played an important role in the D-Day invasions in Normandy with their attacks on German shipping and armour.

"Nice kit"
Jackh44
The Hawker Typhoon IB Model Kit from Academy is a very nice kit. And, pretty easy to build. The fit of the parts rank up the more expensive kits. The engraved panel lines are sharp and the rockets are awesome. The only flaw is the very basic cockpit. But, with a little cardstock, it looks good. This kit is very good for the beginner. Or, someone with a lot of experience.
