    Having invested in the Airfix 1/24 Hawker Typhoon and not knowing if it's mention in my Typhoon/Tempest books or in that How to Build Airfix 1/24 Hawker Typhoon book, one thing that it seems to be divided opinions on, is the colour on the Napier Sabre engine...black or green and then, if green, what nuance(?) the green had?

    This Napier Sabre engine, looks awfully black to me though, so.....opinions?

    The few wartime col.our pics I've seen suggest black, and in B&W photos they seem to be black, Those actual engines I've seen have also been black.

    I think Brett Green wrote a book on how to maximize this build. Might be worth a look.

    Don't think I've ever seen one actually fitted to a Typhoon, and seems a strange place for an oil cooler.

    Looks amazing. Unfortunately I need to share my house with other people and don't have the space.
