    Hey, folks!

    Submitted for your approval: My new Hawker Typhoon piece. It's my first WW2 RAF artwork and I don't pretend to be an expert.

    Detail on the early Mk I w/ the early canopy was scarce, so I'd certainly welcome any input regarding accuracy from those more well-versed in RAF stuff.

    I hope you like it!

    - Ron

    Very nice indeed! The only thing I'd note is that, due to carbon monoxide danger from the exhausts, the Typhoon, especially the earlier 'car door' type shown, always had the canopy (or door and hatch) closed, and the pilot on oxygen, when the engine was running.

    Something I've just noticed in the Typhoon picture - I was too drawn to the aircraft and the beautifully poweful sky! The control tower is very American - those on RAF (and USAAF) bases in Britain were two storie, square, rendered brick buildings, normally painted green camouflage overall, or green / dark earth wave pattern. Still a cracking picture though!!
