Very nice model. I like the weathering and panel line delineation. Lovely smooth paint finish and excellent clear canopy and lights. Your photography is superb. Control of light and shadows on the model and the base make it very realistic. MC

Agree with MC's comment; your sense of colour and restraint with the weathering really makes this one ring true. Those low angle photos feel very authentic. Cracking build.

Thanks to everyone for all the great comments.

Forgot to mention the aftermarket resin exhausts, worth it on this kit I think.

 

FWIW the backgrounds for this Typhoon are photos of ALG B6 as it is today.

Wow, in that case you get extra points from me. I was going to say 10/10, but now it has to be 11/10 😄

Outstanding original attention to detail.

The crew chief certainly had his team on line with keeping his aircraft in tip-top condition !

Lovely modelling.

Thanks, I've used original locations for a few of my models, i.e Airfix Bf 109 E,  Airfix Hurricane and Zvezda La5.

Lovely modelling.

Yes, I could have gone a bit heavier on the weathering possibly, but if one goes too far it can look cartoonish.

Excellent build. I can't imagine where you found the time to do this while also going flat out on the Triplane!

 

I cancelled my TV licence 😃
