I want to make an RAF Eurofighter Typhoon in 1:48 scale. Are all RAF Typhoons FGR 4’s now?  I would like to do a combat aircraft with live ordnance.  I don’t care which conflict, just want it to be a non-anniversary or non-air show scheme.  I have not come across any specific decals yet, so any recommendations are appreciated.  I was going to use the Revell kit but boxing’s are currently limited with only the German bronze tiger boxing the only option near me at the moment. So how do I model the aircraft I want?

The Bronze Tiger boxing will allow you to build an RAF FGR4 as much as the RAF boxing does, same plastic and contains the PIRATE sensor, you'll be missing the inner wing pylons the RAF use which Revell dont provide but can be bought as AM. Xtradecal do a few squadron schemes in standard markings such as 1 Sqn. The only issue you might have is with a full set of correct stencil data.

decals aer a bit short on suply for Eurofighters in general unfortuantely 

if you want a war mashine over Libya, contains also corect bombs for the time and the necessyry pylons

still need basic decals though... (the Revell two-seater also has RAF decals by the way!)

 

the revell air to ground weapons are only party usable though.. (or not at all with you want a operational used load out...)

the Storm Shadows are included and can be used for ~5 years now, but as far as I know were not used yet

There's the Falklands based Typhoons for an air to air load, the box bits should cover that. Decals wise for markings at least would be a bit of a mix n match from other Flight 1435 options from Phantoms and/or F3 Tornados. 

Just a thought.

Multiple Storm Shadows have been fired from both squadron Tornados and squadron Typhoons on the Hebrides air range over the last several years. Watch out for the pylon adaptors though because the Tornado uses a different adaptor to the Typhoon. Incidentally, they have also fired ASRAAM, AMRAAM, Sky Flash (Tornado only) and Meteor there.
