This shows what can be done with a cheap model like the Guillows Typhoon.
Not 100% accurate but a real charmer. Chris got the weight down to
just 19 grams. He mostly sanded down the fuselage
wood, and reduced the thickness of the wing airfoil by
A LOT. The stabiliser was slightly extended and the size of the
fin/rudder was reduced in size by 8 to 10%.
Turning to the colour scheme -
the gray is chalk on white Esaki. The green is
airbrushed Model Master Enamel. The roundels are from
The cannons are black tissue on balsa, mounted to EVA
foam painted gray. The cannons can be bent more than
90 degrees without damage.
I am told the model flies very well.
