Airfix 1/72 scale Hawker Typhoon IB
August 9, 2013
Although the Hawker Typhoon IB may never win any contests for good looks, the newly tooled Airfix 1/72 scale plastic model kit is a real beauty. Typical for Airfix these days, it’s molded in soft, blue-gray plastic with excellent detail throughout. Panel lines are recessed and a little heavy, but better than some earlier Airfix kits; I found them totally acceptable. An interesting feature is the option to show the gun bays opened.
