Today I present to you my recently finished Revell Eurofighter Typhoon in 1/48.
Revell kit builds into a fantastic scale replica but its not without its challenges.
To build this kit, I have used the following detail sets.
· AIM-120 from Hasegawa Weapons Set E X48-17
· Eduard EF2000 Single Seater Detail Set 49367
· Two Bobs RAF 90th Anniversary , RAF Coningsby 29th Squadron June 2008.
I have used Gunze Acrylics, my preferred brand of colours, to paint the aircraft. I have used Gunze H334 Barley Grey H332 Light Aircraft Grey, H57 Aircraft Grey and also some black and H53 Neutral Gray to do some pre and post shading. Some panels on Eurofighter tend to fade and give the impression of bluish color. For that I have used mix of H67 RLM Light Blue and H418 RLM78 Light Blue.
The weathering is slight and I have tried to replicate the weathering effect after viewing several photographs of RAF Typhoons on the internet.
