Monogram 1/48 Hawker Typhoon
Bought this kit several years ago before it’s recent re-release. Used it along with other Revell and Monogram kits as test beds for developing some sorely needed modeling skills. When you haven’t built a kit in over 50 years, things like CA glue, PE parts, air brushes, Future floor wax,and after market accessories were all Creek to me
So I built this Typhoon straight out of the box. However, I did add some PE belts to enhance the look. Not a bad kit, in fact I didn’t have to use any filler on the seams. This kit doesn’t have extensive detail but at the time I wasn’t looking for any tiny parts that often fly off into never never land. The box decals went down well, and I used Tamiya rattle cans along with Model Master paints with a brush, and some pastel chalks for weathering. This kit would make a great weekend project for an experienced modeler or to build just for the fun of it. I enjoyed building it, now on to the car door version from Hasegawa,
