Revell’s Eurofighter Typhoon in 1/48
May 9, 2016 in Aviation
Finished at last! Not the easiest build I have ever done by a long shot & I can only recommend that any intending builder read the instructions very carefully & test fit everything as all is not what it seems & those instructions leave a lot to be desired,
Anyway, that’s all history now & I’m quite pleased with the result. The weathering is very light as all my research shows that the aircraft are kept very clean. Departures from the kit are an Eduard etched cockpit & seat belts & extending the air intake trunking well back into the fuselage & then using spare resin turbine faces to finish off. The canopy has been posed closed as I couldn’t see any means of securing it in the open position, but it is large & clear so I hope I may be forgiven. Paints are Gunze barley grey, Lifecolor, Model Master & finally my ‘patented’ mix of Future & flat clear. Decals are from the kit: really excellent but I didn’t use them all as I can’t afford another trip to the optometrist. Hope you like it.
