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


Would this suffice?

Found on Facebook on the Monogram Scale Models group. 1/48 scale. You're welcome Greg.



Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Just an odd thought, the RAF gets nervous about whether the Napier Sabre's development problems can be resolved and negotiates a "Reverse Lend-Lease" deal with the USSR for production and development rights to the AM-38 for use in place of the Sabre, perhaps produced by Fairey.

Or an intermediate step between Hurricane and Typhoon.

I see that Wikipedia has an SVG file, which could be handy for those who like to make drawings.

IIRC, that Tornado with the contra-prop was assigned to one of the propeller manufacturing companies to be used in testing the contra-props, either Rotol or De Havilland.

According to Flying to the Limit: Testing WW II Single-engined Fighters by Peter Caygill, Tornado R7936 was used to test both de Havilland and Rotol contra-props. I think in the attached image, the DH props are shown.

Odd thought for grins, cross a Tornado with a Typhoon, a Vulture-powered Typhoon would look attractively different.

If you put a Vulture on a Typhoon, you'd get a Tornado Evan, from what I've read, the wing had to be dropped 3"+ for the Vulture to fit the Typhoon fuselage, something to do with what was hanging off the back of the engine that had to go 'over' the wing spar --- or something like that.

Yeah, that would have some people scratching their heads wouldn't it --- I like that idea too, I've got a Hawker Tornado conversion in the stash ----  think on it I will   :icon_meditation: :icon_meditation: :icon_meditation:

Hmmm, ... maybe Tempest I-style leading-edge radiators + earliest Vulture installation on the Tornado?

The one ""True Scale""   >:D >:D >:D  (you should know me by now Greg  ;D ) It's a Maintrack conversion. I'll have to dig it out but I think they did the version with the radiator 'Hurricane' style, and also the beard radiator (chin).

I wonder if anyone has done a 1/48 scale for those of us not suffering from the 1/72 affliction?

Supposedly there was also this full kit, alas still in the wrong scale.  Guess I might need to scratch build.

The LF Models kit exists, I have seen them for sale on Ebay.  It's really tempting to buy one, clone the engine installation and install it on a Tempest along with the tempest mk.I leading edge radiators.

For those wanting a ground-attack fighter without the vulnerability of a cooling system, how about a Centaurus-powered Typhoon?  For more fun, in USAAF markings replacing P-47s in some fighter group.
