The Spadgent posted a topic in Work in Progress - AircraftWell hello everybody! I have decided to head back to the Gentlemans scale for a nice relaxing stress free, almost spring time, out of the box build. (Probably) Since My Father's Day gift from the kids last year ( Tickets to the Cosford air show ) I haven't been to an air show since I was knee high to a grass hopper and the sight and sounds of such a wonderful aircraft have stuck in my head. The rest of the show was pretty cool too. Here's a brief glimpse of the Typhoon in flight. https://wn.com/mobile/eurofighter_typhoon__cosford_airshow_2016 I had bought the Revell kit from the bargain bin in my LMS in Birmingham a few months before not knowing that I would be seeing one in flight. Long story short, this will be my next build, it's a far cry from my last mammoth three month long build of the venerable Airfix Bf109-E. Back to the matter at hand...... The boxed offering is a "Eurofighter Typhoon F2, R.A.F Coningsby UK, 2005/2007 No.3 Squadron. It is the magic number after all. There are other schemes but this one is the one I put a pin in. The Cosford jet was a FGR4 but it was a single seater like this one so that's good enough for me. I hope you will join me in building this lovely kit. Let's hope it is a lovely kit eh? Any hoo here is the obligatory box shot after I have cleaned the bench and set up the almost ritualistic first shot of a new build. Nice innit? I'm going to post now and follow up after dinner. Take care and hope you're all having a lovely Friday eve. Happy Modelling. Johnny Typhoon.
Dear all, Since this little gem from Revell ended up on shelf of doom (still have to add fuel tanks and some minor touch ups are needed including weathering), it is technically still work in progress HUD and ejector seat belts were scratchbuilt. Apart from that, everything else is OOB Up front, it is a mean machine Underneath the wings, fuel tanks are still missing. Best Regards, T
