Italeri Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib (Late) 1:48

Italeri Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib (Late) 1:48

A comparison between two 1:48 Italeri 2734 Hawker Typhoons Mk.Ib (late), commissioned by a WWII

pilot. The first, code letters TP-X, is an OOB model; the second, code letters SA-Q, is the “dressed-to-kill” iteration, using many of the after-market components available at the time. I simply wished to illustrate the vast difference in results between the two builds. I included historical anecdotes provided by the

pilot himself, Dr. Peter Roper, a Montreal resident; a rare privilege indeed.
