Vailly Aviation brings you another great Hawker fighter, the TYPHOON. 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 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. Also shown are electric retracts available from Hank Likes. Other retracts may be used with modifications made to the wing. Full size templates are also shown for all ribs, formers and other various parts. The main accessory parts available are a fiberglass cowl, clear plastic canopy, formed plastic elevator and tailwheel opening shrouds, formed plastic landing gear door liners and cannon shrouds. dummy exhaust stacks and formed aluminum spinner with machined aluminum backplate.
The “Car-Door” style canopy is also available.
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 5.50 diameter wheels and a 1/5 scale WW II pilot figure.
*Please note our Laser Part Kits only include the parts that are laid out on the original plans, made from balsa and plywood. Wing ribs and fuselage formers are typical parts included with these kits but the amount can vary depending on the quality of the plans. If you would like to know what you are expected to receive, we recommend ordering the plans before making a decision on your kit. The majority of our kits don’t include the plans unless specifically stated. Laser Parts Kits will also require additional materials not supplied by LCKA. Some of these items are sheeting, spars, stringers, hardwood blocks, cowls, canopies, electronics and engine. If there is something else you’re not too sure of, please contact us before purchase.
