Hawker Typhoon Mk IB 1/72 Scale Plastic Model Kit
Hawker Typhoon Mk IB Model
- The Hawker Typhoon was a British single-seat fighter-bomber, produced by Hawker Aircraft. While the Typhoon was designed to be a medium-high altitude interceptor, and a direct replacement for the Hawker Hurricane. Through the support of pilots such as Roland Beamont the Typhoon also established itself in roles such as night-time intruder and a long-range fighter. From late 1942 the Typhoon was equipped with bombs; from late 1943 ground attack rockets were added to the Typhoon's armory. Using these two weapons, the Typhoon became one of the Second World War's most successful ground-attack aircraft.
- This finely detailed plastic model kit requires assembly and painting.
