How about a Typhoon or Tempest Floatplane fighter for the FAA. .


Would this suffice?

Tah, I'll have three of those for my RAN Renown and KGV thankyou very much  :)

Sweet model and exactly what I was thinking.

I was also thinking of a Blackburn Firebrand floatplane fighter, don't have one of them hiding somewhere?

Drag, drag, and more drag.  ;)

With the size of the Typhoon it may be better to go the Blackburn B.44 route:



I wish someone would release a kit of that.

I wish someone would release a kit of the B.20 too!

Random idea:  twin seat Typhoon or Tempest using similar arrangement to Sea Fury T.20.

Like this Greg?  Kaiser Aircraft Industries TF2K-1 Wasp Trainer. Base kit is Academy Typhoon 1b with the cockpit from a PM Seafury T.61. Drop tanks from a Hurricane. Decal from F6F and spares.

  • Reno Racer Tempest with Sabre engine
I've seen a Griffon Sea Fury suggested at the AAFO Air Racin' forum...I'm loathe to cut up my Matchbox Tempest II so may just go stock!

Isn't that a Twinpest, instead?

The nose looks a little bulky on those. Maybe it could be a little more like the Whirlwind nose.
