  1. Good Lord, what do you think of us??! As a German I tell you, even if we wanted to (and I just don't see that) we'd never be able to. We are hardly able to maintain what little is left that remotely resembles a working military force let alone a European Army. That whole undertaking of a European Army is a political brain fart as old as the EU itself. It never worked out and I seriously doubt we'll ever make it work properly, even less so if the Germans had any major say in it. Our "we need to do/have this! What, that costs money? Naaww then forget about it."-mentality will eventually get in the way. And quite frankly, you can keep your fresh new F-35s. Our Luftwaffe wanted it dearly. We could have had it and our Ladies on top said nope and even let a very good and able inspector general go over it. There is zero political interest in the F-35 (to the dismay of the troops concerned). I still hope our politicians are smart enough to at least grab some Super Hornets (hey it's the new Top Gun movie jet whoohoo 🙄) and don't fall for that paper ECR-Tiffy. As much as I like the Tiffy, I can hardly see a ECR-version being ready in time after we pretty much slept over all the time necessesary to maintain / further develop those precious own ECR/ECM/SEAD proficiency we had with the Tornado. You are doing good in Poland getting the F-35. Gives our leftists in parlament another excuse to keep their asses on the bench doing nothing for our troops. (Sarcasm is intentional here)
  2. I'm not yet sure if it can be put above the Hase ones?! and that "looks like a Tomcat" -thing .... weeeeeell ...... depends on how nitpickery you are.
  3. Many thanks for the kind feedback. I'm happy it was somewhat entertaining. The whole project was much more a matter of learning about the Typhoon and getting accustomed to the model. Would have loved to do the Glow in the Dark thing on the real one bute sadly there wasn't enough time when we did it roughly two years ago. I basically did it on the model because was currious how it would have looked like on the real thing.
  4. Many many thanks for the kind words. Happy you like it. I can only recommend the Revell Eurofighter. It is a rudimentary kit but all that is necessary to make it presentable can easily be done and it is a very forgiving model.
  5. Already finished last year, I didn't make it any sooner, but before a new Bavarian Tiger will hopefully soon see the light of day, here again the Ghost Tiger on his flight into the witching hour (all normal paint and brush on extra strong cardboard, Format Euro A2 / 33/47):
  6. And off and away with it onto the shelf. Thanks for the interest and for holding out until here. On to the next project!
  7. alright these are the last one and you are rid of me.
  8. Actually, I wanted to cover the foil with flat coat first and then polish it up a bit, but it was a bit too delicate for me. I am quite satisfied with the satin finish:
  9. one in the light, one in the dark, and one very dark (at some point, there is no point anymore in taking pictures) ....
