Eurofighter "Bronze Tiger"

Recommended Posts

Hi, this is a 1/48 Revell Eurofighter; I added Olimp exhaust and some Eduard photoetch in the cockpit...

Very nice. Are the Olimp Exhausts much of an improvement?

 

Yes, even though the Olimp parts are very poorly cast and need careful polish of the exhaust feathers...

Thanks, I'll add them to my list. Your paint and decaling  job is superb. I have that kit myself, but will be building an operational RAF Tiffy.

Great build!

 

Is the IP cover scratch built, or did you use some aftermarket? It looks fantastic!

 

Cheers,

Markus

I improved the kit part; same thing for the rear section of the cockpit...

Very nice work! The first thing that stood out to me was how good the IP Cover looks; not just the detail but the painting and weathering. It took me a long time to learn that items that should be painted flat black actually look better when painted either a very dark gray or lightened flat black followed by a pure black wash plus dry-brushing. It appears you did something similar here and the effects are outstanding; my apologies if I'm wrong. The crystal clear canopy really helps reveal all the intricate detail work you put into the Cover; great job!

You got it right: that's exactly what i did...

Beautiful work Lorenzo!
I agree with Wardog. Fantastic work on the IP cover and rear deck.

On the whole, it's a great build. Particularly the cockpit and how smoothly the decals has been set on the kit's surfaces.
