Monograms classic 1/48 Typhoon from the 1970's, rescribed the panel lines, drilled out the guns, exhaust etc, scratchbuilt an interior, detailed the wheel wells and gear, converted kit prop to a 3 blade prop, and added bomb racks and bombs.

A wee tutorial of getting that worn look to an aircraft’s camouflage by working with dry pigments. This is part of an ongoing video blog by Mr. Gary "Making Models Again" Bottoms.
Example kit in this case is the Airfix 1/72 Hawker Typhoon Mk Ib[...]
