Airfix on the offensive: 1/24 Hawker Typhoon, and…

News came today from Telford that 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?

  1. Fantastic !, a 1/24 Typhoon I want one NOW... will be at Telford tomorrow can't wait.
    I did some food shopping this morning and bought some jumbo hot dogs and won an Airfix kit ,hey it's my lucky day !

  2. Can anyone take more pictures of this big beautiful beastie. This years Telford show has been slow in the posting of photo's on the internet. People must be stunned by the latest releases and they forget to use their camera. Sort of like finding UFO's and Big Foot,,,

    The photo looks very promising.

  3. OOOOOOOOooooooo... Hot Dogs mmmmmmmmmmm.
    Does that men that if I buy a TAmiya kit I will get free sushi?

  4. Ok, so if I pop the top off that can of hot dogs, is the Typhoon going to be inside? 😉

  5. I'm going to buy one of these as soon as it comes out, in fact I dare say I'll be on the pre-order bandwagon.

  6. I have the 1/24 Mosquito and it is "BIG". I would think this will be a monster also. I would prefer to see it in 1/32 but I am a s****r for the Typhoon so who knows. If I built it I would have to hanger it in my back house.
