Description
This is a 1/72 Hawker Typhoon IB Plastic Model Kit from Academy.

Conceived by Sydney Camm to supersede the Hurricane as a fighter-interceptor, the Typhoon became famous as a low level ground attack aircraft.  This was thanks to it's heavy cannon armament and ability to carry up to 2000lbs of bombs or 8 rocket projectiles. The Typhoon was powered by a unique H-configured 24 cylinder Napier-Sabre engine rated at over 2,000 horsepower. Typhoons played an important role in the D-Day invasions in Normandy with their attacks on German shipping and armour.
