Hawker Typhoon Mk Ib

175 Sqn - 1944
This is the Academy Hawker typhoon Mk Ib in 1/72 scale.
The kit is an easy build, no problems at all, good fit, engraved panel lines and crispy fine detail.
No filler was used, just smooth sanding over the glued unions. Paints are Model Master enemels and the decals are from the kit. The decals are a problem as with all the old Academy kits, they produce silvering. To avoid that I applied Future coats until I obtained a glass looking surface. Humbrol Mate cote was used and the weathering was made with chalk pastels. Highly recomended kit.

I can really call Carlos Schneerson my pathfinder. He really illuminates the target for you, when you want to focus on air warfare history.
