Revell 1/48 Typhoon

Cracking job and nice to see one in the Luftwaffe markings for a change. I often wondered why the canard foreplanes were set at such an angle when at rest but seeing the boarding ladder in position it all makes sense now.

Many thanks for all your generous coments, I'm very pleased to read them.

Calum - the FOD covers in the intakes are TwoMikes. All the others are scratchbuilt. I say 'built' but they are simply wine bottle foil pressed on to the fuselage and trimmed to shape. Red paint, a black Sharpie., some spare 'No Step' decals and a patch or two of white finish them off.

Great tip, thanks mate. I'll have to remember that one.

Great build Goon!! One of, if not the best Tiffie I have seen built to date.

Can you do me a favor and send me some pics so I can add them to the Two Mikes Gallery? Make sure to give me your "real" name and some info about the kit if you dont mind.

My email is Twomikesresin@gmail.com

Cheers

Mike

Hi Tom,

The FOD covers are simply wine foil pressed on to the fuselage and trimmed to shape. Glad you like my Typhoon.

Cheers,

That is awesome. I have two 1/48th scale ones to do , both the Single and two seater. I hope mine turn out as nice as this. Fantanstic model.

Thanks for the further comments.

TomTwin, the antennae covers are a combination of a foil 'base' and some shaped plastic strip and Mr. Surfacer 500.
