Airfix Hawker Typhoon Mk. IB 1/72

May 12, 2023 · in Aviation · · 14 · 395

Taken of the shelf of doom after a long break.
All of a sudden things started to roll and i finished it within a few days. The scheme is from No. 245 squadron in 1945.
Painted with Ammo Mig and AK Interactive acrylics, Ammo Mig panel line wash.
A beautiful kit with lots of details. I bought a Yahu cockpit panel which is not worth the trouble since you don't see anything from the cockpit really.
Man, it's hard to photograph these tiny planes!

  1. Nice work, Felix! I thought it was 1/48 at first.

  2. Great result on this Typhoon, Felix @fxrob
    Indeed hard to believe this is 1/72.
    Very nice paintwork and weathering on this scheme. Not often seen with the blue/white checker fuselage band.

  3. Amazing result, Felix! Indeed, the it is hard to believe it is 1/72!

  4. I agree with the comments above - your paint variation and sense of tonality give this a sense of size beyond its scale. But you're right - it's hard to photograph a 1/72 plane in a way that makes it feel large; stacking and blending a file of images in Photoshop is the best way I've found.

  5. Nice work, love the scheme and that shark mouth.

  6. The Typhoon is such a good looking plane and you’ve definitely captured that with this model, the photographs are great as well.

  7. Lovely build! I also like that scheme - had never seen that one before. Well done.
