Hawker Typhoon 1B - Car Door

Hawker Typhoon 1B - Car Door

These early machines were somewhat rushed into service and it was discovered that a number of modifications would be desirable, if not totally essential. Perhaps the most noticeable difference from the later models were around the canopy area – the first Typhoons were supplied with a forward opening ‘car door’ style cockpit entry for the pilot which even included a wind down window. The pilot also had a transparent roof panel, which hinged open to the left and some machines had the addition of a rear-facing mirror, on the canopy frame.

Some of the other options this new version will allow are:

  • The new ‘car door’ style canopy structure
  • Earlier ‘car door’ pilots seat
  • Alternative main undercarriage wheel
  • Pneumatic tail wheel
  • Alternate cannon fairings for the guns
  • Different internal frame structure
  • 500Ib ‘Long Tail’ bombs

 

  • Livery A: R7752 PR-G, Roland Beamont, 609 Squadron Manston 1943
  • Livery B: RB781 SA-H 486 Squadron
  • Livery C: EK270 EL-X 181 Squadron
  • Livery D: JP671 XP-R 174 Squadron

 

In addition, this new version of the 1/24th scale Hawker Typhoon will give the modeller the option to construct his model with or without the main aerial in place, with a similar option for the pilot's optional rear-facing mirror.
