Overview
 
The Hawker Typhoon (Tiffy in RAF slang), was a British single-seat fighter-bomber, produced by Hawker Aircraft. It was intended to be a medium high altitude interceptor, as a replacement for the Hawker Hurricane but several design problems were encountered and it never completely satisfied this requirement. Kit has engraved panel lines, well appointed cockpit and fuselage with photoetch (instrument panel, consoles, seatbelts and other interior), single piece propeller with separate spinner, resin exhaust stacks, wing cannon bays, bombs (x2), optional canopy and door, mask, detailed wheel wells and optional landing gear with resin (tires weighted), additional photoetch (canopy, door and other exterior).
