        Yep, and a good price, doesn't reflect the years of hard work put into it, a shame but things move on in time

            Yes, this is Rogers typhoon. It's a hefty price tag, but there aren't any other typhoons around as complete outside of the RAFM example.

              Nice project.

              It still amazes me that such a beast of an aircraft and one so important for the RAF wasn't preserved in more numbers.

                Very nice. How much of the fuselage is real?

                  Most of it i think, although seem to recall rear fuselage was Sea Fury ? I think details are in the 'Typhoon parts' thread.

                    Only the cockpit area, screen, canopy, tail wheel, and engine are original. The rear fuselage and fin are new.
                    The sea fury rear fuselage was never incorporated into the build, being a different design.

                      Was the Sea Fury rear fuselage in question the one that brought back from Malta to the UK many years back? If not used in this project anyone know what happened it?

                        Hi tim,
                        Yes it is the same sea fury rear fuselage as recoveted from Malta.
                        I saw it a couple of years ago. In itself, it would make a nice project.

                          So how much original Typhoon content is there in this project?

                            Pretty much everything forward of the rear frame that supports the pilots seat is original restored typhoon.

                            The rear fuselage is new build.

                            Roger showed me around a couple of years ago, and it looks really impressive.

                              I have no connection with this item , however for curiosity sake it is being advertised in a rival magazine for 29,900.

                                so there are two projects to build more typhoons?.......because if i recall one project has received a genuine rear fuselage.

                                  The Dutch rear fuselage section travelled to the U.K recently. Apart from that there is the Tempest V project which uses the rear fuselage of the RAFM Tempest II.

                                    It would make a lot of sense to merge both typhoon projects into one. You would need deep pockets though.

                                      Apologies for the thread creep but are there any recent pics of the ex Malta Sea Fury rear fuselage?
