Airfix 1/72 Hawker Typhoon 1b
June 6, 2014 in Aviation
It is still June 6th over here so here is my contribution.
It is Mn317/ZYB of No. 247 (China British) Sqn., 124 Wing as of June 1944.
Late in the build I convinced myself that it was a 3-blade prop not a 4-blade like came with the kit. It is not the kit’s fault. I used decals from Xtradecal & of all the choices on the sheet I think this is the only one that doesn’t give the blade type. After some modification to the Airfix base plate & the cross section of Academy’s 3-blade I was back in business.
Vallejo primary colors (never again), Tamiya stripes, Polly S Sky & Alclad flat final coat.
I see in my final shot the pilot is about to drop a rocket on the runway. Better fix that.
Thanks for looking 7 I will be waiting for the next group build.
