AWESOME PAOLO! I probably would never have slowed down long enough to look this thread over and enjoy it if you had not set up this sub-forum. That was a Sunderland I saw in there, wasn't? Yes, yes, that had to be a Sunderland. WOW!

Thank you, Jeff :)  :) :)  :)  :)  :)  :)

. . . And I would probably never have seen it If it wasn't for Your comment, Jeff ;-)
The amount of pictures and the quality is wonderfull
I have never been able to remember the differences between the Typhon and the Tempest, except for this Tempest Mk. II with the Bristol Centaurus radial-engine ;-)
Now, as the propellar have been used to point out the tempest from the Typhoon, it surprises me that the Sabre-engine wasn't powerfull enough to pull four blades!
As the Bf109 had automatic leading edge slats they should be deployed at any time on ground - I wonder if the slats on Hendons Bf109 have been fixed permanently in 'in-position' to make the plane more reckognizable :-/
Wonder what the reason are to the seemingly unfinished low leading edge of the Bf109 -tail wich is zoomed-in :-/

Armand, the Typhoon did get a 4 bladed prop.

 

Slats on the 109 were usually pushed in when sitting on the ground, poped out when the a/c was moved or the engine started.

 

Easiest way to tell a Typhoon from a Tempest is the vertical stabilizer.

Now, as the propellar have been used to point out the tempest from the Typhoon, it surprises me that the Sabre-engine wasn't powerfull enough to pull four blades!

It was; late Typhoons, the Tempest V & VI all had four-blade props.

As the Bf109 had automatic leading edge slats they should be deployed at any time on ground - I wonder if the slats on Hendons Bf109 have been fixed permanently in 'in-position' to make the plane more reckognizable

More likely to stop the visiting public playing with them, and breaking something.

Can I please point out that British aircraft have fins and tailplanes, not these ghastly modern inventions of "vert stabs" & "horizontal stabs."

Edgar,

     Are you saying the Hurricanes, Spitfires, Typhoons and Tempests did not have elevators or stabilizers? And simply because they were gorgeous ladies of flight with beautiful tails they could outmaneuver anything? :P

 

 

     I took a little time to think about what I just wrote. I believe I agree with you. If you look at those ladies tails long enough, you just have to agree they could have there way with anyone. :D
