Airfix A02041A Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib 1:72 Scale
Initially designed to replace the Hawker Hurricane as the complementary high-altitude fighter to the Supermarine Spitfire, the Typhoon instead found its fame as a low altitude ground-attack aircraft, spearheading the airbourne assault through occupied Europe after D-Day. Designed around the enormous 24 cylinder Napier Sabre engine, the Typhoon had a tough gestation before maturing as a capable, low level fighter bomber, devistating German armour in Normandy and beyond.
