I have fond memories of that kit, built two of them in my time and have another one in the loft with a Paragon bubble top conversion, the only really bad part that I struggled with was getting a good fit with the canopy and fuselage.

ok, not pictured is the assembled engine which I actually glued togther!

So now it has officially started as a build :)

 

Now to catch up on pics:

 

You can see in red the mould seam for the bubble vs. car door, along with some other blemishes that need to be fixed

fantastic decals considering the age

some AM decals

My plan mocked up for the gear bay shapes

30715351396_1865fecfb3_b.jpg

 

red is to remove to create the overhang found on the gear bays and wing skin and spar cutouts

 

and some "carbon dating"

Even as a kid, I thought that Tiffie pilot was a crack shot. he holed that boiler from all sides! Top, both sides, and shot up at an angle, too!
He's my hero.
AND, he didn't hurt the locomotive crew whatsoever... great shooting, sir.

 

so funny you mentioned this as I was noticing his exquisite marksmanship too

I've seen multiple videos of Mustangs and Thunderbolts cracking steam locomotives, and that's just using .50's. I can't begin to imagine the damage four 20mm cannons could do.

I still don't understand. To the best of my knowledge, Revell never released a bubble top version of the Typhoon. I don't have the kit anymore or I'd check it out; perhaps they intended to release one at some point in the future, but that would have been very unusual indeed, as Revell standard practice at the time, was one aircraft, one mold.

 

Also, should you need or just want additional references, I can probably help in that department, as I have quite a lot of Typhoon stuff.
