We are extremely pleased to have Richard Spreckley of mancavemodels.co.uk supporting the Hawker Typhoon RB396 Restoration Project. Richard is an established award winning scale modeller whose outstanding work speaks for itself! He specialises in quarter scale aircraft but has been known to build larger models and also stray into the wold of ships and science fiction. He is one of only a dozen modellers, hand picked by Airfix to build models for their publication, such is his level of ability.
Richard was also at our launch event with a stunning array of work including multiple Typhoon models.
Richard has offered his services to build 1:48 Typhoon model kits for our supporters. This model can be built to a bespoke specification to the buyers requirements (including specific aircraft/squadron/armament); or it can be built to the standard model kit specification.
Built using a leading plastic scale model kit and enhanced using photo-etch and scratch building upgrades this model is an excellent representation of the mighty Hawker Typhoon MkIb which will come presented on a hand made display base. Collection on completion is preferred, but delivery can be arranged via a specialist courier however, please be advised that plastic scale models are fragile; everything will be done to package and ship the item so it arrives safely, however some small parts may need re-attaching if they have been dislodged during the delivery process.
Models will be built to order and could take up to 3 months to complete.
All profits will go to the RB396 Typhoon Restoration.
