The Hawker Typhoon. Go Airfix.
Yeah saw the rumours a while ago. Defo buying it. Will sit nicely along side my 1/24 Hurricane
Just seen it at Telford.Looks stunning.Best Airfix kit I've ever seen.Tamiya standard I'd say
Dave, If we are talking Tamiya standard in 1/24th scale this has to be a pretty superb kit. It will certainly go on my own list (and probably sit in the stash for a few years!)
Tamiya standard is a big standard to come up to. The engine detail looks superb though
Look at the detail in that!!!!
Looks fantastic but why oh why don't Airfix produce some 32nd scale models. 24th scale is toooo big you'd need a hanger to store it.
It does look rather tasty. My thoughts are is the subject in the photo the master model, which will then be broken down to bits of plastic, or is it a test shot.
I know that they have a physical model at Telford but is that the model the punters will get..... I sure hope so.
The cockpit and motor look amazing.
Ian there is a link with the sprue shots on it. Would you like it?
Page 6 on this link for the sprue shots
My thoughts entirely. I think 1/32 is large, I build in 1/48 normally and think the shelves fill up way to quickly as it is.
I don't do many aircraft but that is going straight on my list to Santa
We're going to need some 1/24 tanks and trains for it to shoot up now!!
That Typhoon is definitely on my wish list!!!
Love to build that and really go to town.
Just throwing in this question does anyone know why Airfix have never produced planes in 32nd scale? If they did to the standard that Revell are now producing and it's obvious that they can if this Typhoon is anything to go on then there would a greater choice of maybe British planes.
I don't think you will be disappointed if you get one Richard.The detail is outstanding.The fuselage is molded with lap joints.That is with the skins overlapping and not just engraved lines.The sprues were on display and it really looks a top notch kit.
they did make a 1/32 scale mosquito but I don't think you can get it anymore sadly
God i'm drooling even more now. Check out these photos from Jonathan Mock
That's the old Revell 1/32 Mosquito your thinking of.
I'm just happy to see Airfix doing so well. And modeling in general, they must have confidence in the market to produce this.
