New Tooling

Designed initially to replace the Hawker Hurricane as the complementary high-altitude fighter to the Supermarine Spitfire, the Typhoon instead found its fame as a low-altitude ground-attack aircraft, spearheading the airborne assault through occupied Europe after D-Day.  Designed around the enormous 24-cylinder Napier Sabre, the Typhoon has a tough gestation before maturing as a capable, low-level fighter-bomber, devastating German armor in Normandy and beyond.

Airfix Starter Sets are ideal for beginners.  Medium Starter Sets are a little more challenging to build than the Small Starter Set range, with more parts.  Each Medium Starter Set includes glue, two brushes and six acrylic paints.
