Hello everyone, this is my first post here at Britmodeller......on a whole to get a friend of mine (Alex ,AKA here as Coneheadff) off my back and telling me to post some pictures, here are a some work in progress shots. The Typhoon is not an easy subject as there is not that much technical information available. I have used some poetic licence but as it is only going on my sideboard and not in Hendon, I am pleased so far. The last shot, that is a standard coffee mug to give some scale (also my MGB is one of my other passions).

The final layout here has not yet been decided, I am still building the "furniture" of the diorama. Once it is all done, I will have an idea of space available and how things will sit.

Hope you are happy now Alex?

WOW! That is excellent. Love the detail. Great work.


Have you considered a roof or partial roof like mine?



Any close-ups of the posters scattered around the work shop? They look very interesting! LOL

Welcome to the site, and wow, you have been busy. That looks very impressive indeed. 

I think the level of clutter in there is about right. Sometimes less is more.

Perhaps an airline from a valve on the wall to the wing? I love the cleco fasteners on the skin.

Maybe a bit of roof would help to enclose the scene, away from whatever is behind it when finished.

Thank you for the positive feedback

I have been mulling over a part roof, mainly as the styrene sheet I used does not have the strength to support itself.

Clutter, you are right, there is a fine line between to much and not enough. Luckily, I am a licenced aircraft engineer and have worked in hangars where you cannot move for crap  to hangars you can eat your dinner off the floor, so I have an idea.

There will be an air line, extension cable and a few other bits, but on a whole, not much more. 


As for the ladies on the walls, I just Googled girls and planes, saw a few and shrunk them down :)
