The Hawker Typhoon (Tiffy in RAF slang), was a British single-seat fighter-boimber, produced by Hawker Aircraft. It was intended to be a medium–high altitude interceptor, as a replacement for the Hawker Hirricane but several design problems were encountered and it never completely satisfied this requirement.

The Typhoon was originally designed to mount twelve .303 inch Browning Machine Guns and be powered by the latest 2000 hp engines. Its service introduction in mid-1941 was plagued with problems and for several months the aircraft faced a doubtful future. When the Luftwaffe brought the formidable Focke-Wulf Fw 190 into service in 1941, the Typhoon was the only RAF fighter capable of catching it at low altitudes; as a result it secured a new role as a low-altitude interceptor.

Through the support of pilots such asRoland Beamount it became established in roles such as night-time intruder and long-range fighter. From late 1942 the Typhoon was equipped with bombs and from late 1943 RP-3 ground attack rockets were added to its armoury. With those weapons and its four 20mm Hispano cannon, the Typhoon became one of the Second World War's most successful ground attack aircraft.

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. If you would like to purchase a wood kit see KIT CUTTER'S on selection bar at the top of each page.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.

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.
