Hawker Typhoon Mk.1B, RB389/I8-P, 'Pulverizer IV', No. 440 Squadron RCAF 'City of Ottawa'

Aviation Archive. Another well done addition to the Typhoon line. The fuselage is neatly painted, and the various insignia and lines are sharp and well defined. This release has an aerial on the belly, which I don't recall seeing on previous versions.

There was an oddity about this partricular model. The landing gear wouldn't fit in the rubber grommet on the starboard wing because there was already a broken-off plastic peg in the hole. That was also the case on the port wing. However, the pegs molded into the wheel-well covers and the extended gear were all intact. Mmmmm.

A sharp X-acto knife took care of the extra pegs.
