Like the Defiant, the Typhoon build was another lower detailed Airfix kit. It held the same characteristics of the Defiant throughout the build. They just about mirrored each other until the end. The build itself was pleasant the whole way through. Even though the quality wasn’t there, I really can’t complain when they go well. No headaches make for a good build anytime.
I chose to go with the desert scheme to represent Britains involvment in North Africa. I know I say it all the time, but I really need to pay more attention to this aspect of WWII. I am thinking of a B-24 next or a P-40. Or both. Maybe I will do some research and begin another theme build on the war in North Africa.
I am learning to accept Airfix’s downfalls while seeing their strengths at the same time. I have learned to be more accepting of them after the Defiant and Typhoon. While they are not my first choice, they certainly aren’t my last. Besides, after Mister Craft’s Su-22 nightmare, anything is better.
