Hawker Typhoon : FINISHED

Recommended Posts

Oh man that is just killer! Great work and excellent progress info. I'm going to feel pretty silly taking the easy route with the MDC kit after watching your build. I'll be very interested to see how you handle the engine. The Revell piece isn't all that bad as a place to start but the Sabre has a ton of accessories on it. Brian's old build photos could be a help.

Did some more work on the wings last night and got at least one done before l had to turn in. The thing about this camera l am using is that it does not handle white on white too well. Any ways here we go again. first of l made the main wing spar that runs through the wheel well. Its a girder type structure. In this pic you can just see the work done but the next pic with it temporarily installed to show you what it looks like l still need to add some more things to it.

here is different shots of the wheel well. l still not done with it yet as l have to extend the wing a bit to make it all work out when attached to the fuselage. Hence why a lot of the stringers are longer at the end. Once l fix the problem everything will be trimmed up. If l don't fix this problem it will not look right.

Here is the pic with the Main Spar temporarily installed to show you how everything goes somewhat together. Still a lot more work on just this wing let alone the other l have not even touched yet. Well done for today. Hopefully after the new year l will have more to show you and a lot more done.

I really like what you are doing with this old kit Hacker. That is real, top-drawer modelling.

Well l been still at it yesterday and this morning. l build both gun bays yesterday. l made them as separate units so l can work on them more easily. took a lot of trial and error but l manged to get them done now l run into the problem that the position of the cannons in the bay do not line up with the cannon shrouds position on the wing. No problem l will just move them as my gun bays where made according to plans l have. l also have to redo the landing lights as they are not prototypical. l am manged to get the better pics. l cant find where on the camera to change the flash setting but hey l just put a business card over it and played with it until l got it right. So here are todays pics. First are the gun bays.

Here are both gun bays temporarily installed in the wings to show you how they look. Still have to make the covers but l will worry about that when l get it all together.

here is the wheel wells done. Now l have to still add some more detail but like the gun bays it is basically done. The main spar is still loose as l have to still either make the landing gear or modify the existing units. The gear that comes in the kit are way too long when you compare them to drawings of the actual units. l have to figure out what to do there.

here are both wheels wells complete. as you noticed in the last picture the other wing off to the side. you can see how l

extended the wing so it will still fit under the wing root.

as you can see also the gun bays put into place so you can see the other side and how they look. I still have to finish the flap area and once thats done the whole wing is detailed. Well that's all for today hope you enjoyed it.

 

Now l have a question. Does this build qualify for the group build?? If not that's ok just something l was wondering

...I don't know if it qualifies as a group build, in my opinion, it qualifies as an excellent build...keep up the good work Dave :lol:.
