    yeah me too although I have sat in one and it only cost a fiver.
    I've loved the Spitfire, Hurricane, Lancaster and Tiffie since I was about 6 years old in 1964.

    I presume you mean the Hawker product and not the modern after-burning version!? Unless you had a time machine in your childhood!

    I also presume you’ve seen the restoration of one that is ongoing? Sam, one of the Trustees is a pilot at ARCo.

    I wasn't aware of that, noI'll have a look though TA!!

    My dad used to buy me airfix kits on pay day when I was a kid and it would have been about '64/'65 when I was 6/7 that he brought home the Tiffy and a Mig (15 or 17) and built them for me.
    He probably told me about the Tiffy and it'll have gone over my head but I've never forgotten those 2 and a Focke Wulfe 190 too.
    I've always liked the Tiffy, Tempest and Mosquito as well as the BoB 3.

    My first ever Airfix model was a Typhoon too - spent ages painting it and then it took pride of place in the ‘squadron’!

    Here’s their website: www.hawker-typhoon.com. The Supporters Club is worth a look too, they often have a big presence the usual airshows..

    This has gotten me thinking - maybe I should buy a model and turn my hand to it now, something to do in those quiet moments of Lockdown...

    I wonder if you can get little ‘Bremont’ decals for below the cockpit...?

    Hahahahaha I've also considered making a comeback and starting another squadron.
    Ideal for a rainy day as long as you've got a good collection of paint and a tube of glue.
    'Locate and cement.....'
