Airfix Hawker Typhoon IB Starter Set

Airfix Starter Sets are ideal for beginners. Each Small Starter Set includes glue, brush and four acrylic paints - all that is needed to complete a first kit.

Designed initially 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, the Typhoon has a tough gestation before maturing as a capable, low-level fighter-bomber, devastating German armour in Normandy and beyond.

This set includes starter size Humbrol paints 30, 33, 56, 64, 78 and 106, as well as painting instructions and decals for the variant 'Hawker Typhoon Ib, No.266 Squadron, 2nd Tactical Air Force, RAF, Holland and Germany, April/May 1944'.

Model is to1:72 scale and is supplied unassembled and unpainted.
