Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB: On the prowl.

D-Day striped Typhoons and the unmistakable White Cliffs of Dover. Not just another superb handiwork of Roy Nockolds though. During WW2 this artist worked improving the camouflage of aircraft. Curiously, Nockolds investigated how to improve the identification of the Typhoons: the similar shape of the Hawker fighter and the Fw 190 -specially those harassing Jabos  of 1942/43- was producing tragic mistakes with several “Tiffies” shot down in error. Few errors with these stripes.

Boy, those radiators were BIG.
