Classic Airfix Typhoon (1959) Tweaked Just a bit

On this kit I used a replacement Falcon vacu-form canopy, a prop and wheels from the Academy kit. Paint by Tamiya. Even thought it is over 60 years old it does scale well on a Bentley plan. This was a simple and fun build.

  1. Nice looking little Tiffie! Well done.

  2. Nice work, David. I built a couple of those long ago. Yours looks much better then mine did!

  3. Very nice Typhoon, David.
    You did a perfect job on this oldie.
    The vac canopy is perfect.
    Still want to build one of my own because this is such a nice aircraft.

  4. Thank you John! Go for it. It's so simple to build.

  5. Well, now I know where Revell got that prop on their 1/32 kit!

    Thanks for the memory and proof we really are in a golden age of modeling nowadays.

  6. Looks great, years ago I built this kit twice. On my last build I pretty much did the same upgrades too. One day I will post it.

  7. Another classic put together, this time with a few more modern "replacements".
    Looks amazing, David!
