NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
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.
