Hawker Typhoon 1B
198 Squadron, 2TAF
Plumetot ALG
July 1944



























The Hasegawa kit came out in 1999, twenty years old and as fresh as if it was issued yesterday. Mostly it falls together (the rockets & rails are a bit of a chore), and from opening the box to this mornings' photo session took just a month. Not too much more to say other than it was the first time using the recent Tamiya WWII RAF colours, not too sure about them, still prefer the Jurassic era WEM enamels to be truthful but they may grow on me. 

Thanks for taking the time to look and as ever all comments, criticisms and questions are very welcome. Have a great weekend everyone, best from the 'Naki.



Ian.
