Day Four of Hawker Typhoon Build...closer 'n closer...

Had a more leisurely evening, mainly because I gave the Typhoon a coat of satin acrylic varnish and it took a while to dry:

As you can see I used Jo Sonja's Acrylic Satin Varnish- works for me. This was a preparation for putting on the decals, plus providing a bit more protection to the model.

Once this was dry I applied the decals:

I'll do a bit more tomorrow- but not too much as my son & I are planning to go to the pictures to see the new Avengers movie in


  1. Streaking ahead! US wartime production levels here!

    1. Perahps, but with the one big difference, that only ONE is coming off the production line;)

  2. Aww mate! Excellent work. Ha! You'll have time for another...and at the rate you're going, another again!

    1. Nooooo Way. I only want one for Kampfgruppe Normandy, if I ever build another plane it would be an Auster Artillery Observation plane and a late model Spitfire.

      Beware the canopy, mine did not fit neatly, I have had to find a means of filling gaps!
