Hawker Typhoon IB 1/72 Scale Plastic Model Kit
Hawker Typhoon IB Model
- 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 airborne 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, devastating German armor in Normandy and beyond.
- This finely detailed plastic model kit requires assembly and painting.
