  1. F-22, F-35 Paints new company

    The F-22 and F-35 most definitely are painted. Both came out of their respective factories in primer (mint green in the case of the F-35). There are unpainted areas on the them, as there are on all jets, but overall they are definitely painted.
  2. RAF Typhoon display aircraft Qu.

    I strongly suspect it'll be for fuel. Some displays are away from the airfield at which the aircraft is based, so presumably the fuel is needed to transit to and from the display as well as for the display itself. It's more economical to work up one display (with a tank) than two (one with and one without) so they display with it.
  3. If you have one from a Revell Typhoon take an ASRAAM and remove all of the fins - that should get you fairly close. I don't believe there is a RAIDS pod available aftermarket in 1/32.
  4. Airfix 1/72nd Eurofighter F2

    You must have had a different new-tool Revell Typhoon than me, because mine had all of the same fit issues as the older kit. Was not impressed to pay more money for fewer parts and the same fit problems.
  5. eurofighter kit for a beginner

    If you're not bothered about accuracy but want something that is fairly straightforward then go for Hobbyboss.
  6. Airfix 1/72nd Eurofighter F2

    At a push you could, but it still wouldn't be correct. Your best bet for a prototype would be to try and find some photos of DA2 in its all black scheme and paint it as that.
  7. Italeri Eurofighter Typhoon 1/48

    Yes, that's a rebox of the Italeri kit.
  8. Loaded for Bear... or not?

    I always try to put some kind of representative load on my jets, either operational or training. For me it also has to be a realistic load, i.e. one that is actually used or cleared and could be used, with weapons on the correct stations and on the correct launchers.
  9. Lovely job. Makes me want to build mine!
  10. 1/48 A-6 E

    Hobbyboss over Kinetic any day of the week. Much better fit.
  11. When you consider the different variants of Sidewinder, Sparrow and AMRAAM over the life of a platform it makes sense.
  12. Airfix 1/72nd Eurofighter F2

    If you want a decent Typhoon, it's a toss-up between Revell and Hasegawa. Both have issues (Revell's fit is a pain in places and Hasegawa's needs a new seat and is expensive) but they build into decent models of the real thing.
  13. Airfix 1/72nd Eurofighter F2

    The kit isn't even based on the prototype, it's based on the initial mock-ups of what was then EFA before the Development Aircraft were even built. It amazes me that Airfix keep re-popping it to be honest... You won't get photos up the intakes of an RAF Typhoon because, well, it's not allowed (no, I can't say why). There should be plenty of the exhausts online though.
  14. TYPHOON FGR.4 - Revell 1/48

    I got a set for the 1/72 Hasegawa Typhoon. Total waste of money. The sizing is completely wrong and they ended up in the bin. I wouldn't waste your money.
  15. Vallejo Model Air have 36231 available in some of their Modern US aircraft paint sets. It's also available from Mr Hobby. Not sure of the paint codes.
