Hawker Typhoon 97" Parts Set - VaillyRef: vai-typppk
Vailly Aviation brings you another great Hawker fighter, the TYPHOON. Roy Vaillancourt quotes "The Typhoon completes our set of all the famous Hawker fighters. You've seen our successful Hurricane, SeaFury and Tempest. Now "The Family" is complete with the Typhoon. The model is scaled at 2.35 inches to the foot. The plans (available separately) contain 3 large sheets that show an all built-up structure drawn full size and includes the installation of flaps and retracts. The retracts shown are our Giant Scale Retracts specifically designed for our Typhoon.
Primary construction is light plywood, balsa and spruce using conventional "Tried and True" materials and building techniques. All structures (with the exception of the rudder) are built-up and are either sheeted with 1/16", 1/8" or 3/32" balsa. The rudder is fabric covered as per the prototype. No foam is used what-so-ever. A four to six channel radio is required. The Typhoon uses our 5.50 diameter wheels and our 1/5 scale WW II pilot figure."
