Airfix on the offensive: 1/24 Hawker Typhoon, and…
News came today from Telford that Airfix has been showing a new 1/24 scale Hawker Typhoon kit, to be released shortly. It seems to be an advanced offering, featuring parts breakdown for early and late version of the Typhoon, complete engine and plumbing, detailed gun bays, detailed wing spars and fuselage trusswork, full rivet surface detail and allegedly even moulded-in stressed skin effect.
An even more surprising recent news from the same source is that Airfix team up with Ye Olde Oak food company to put their promotional labels on canned hot dog sausages. An Airfix hot dog, anyone?
