Revell 1/144 Eurofighter Typhoon


My first finished plane that is in service today, the Eurofighter Typhoon from Revell. Even though the kit is really lacking detail im really happy with the way its turned out.

Really dig how the Pro modellers Wash really brought out the panel lines and gave it a worn in look. First model i used the the Micro Sol and Micro Set decal softener, this stuff really impressed me, melts the decal on to the model to give it a painted on look and once applied try not to touch the decal again, the pain at ruining the decal.

Quite a few thing that i can improve on,getting the masking on the canopy correct, you can kinda see where i didn't apply the masking tape correctly and left a weird looking finishing line. Still got to watch were i put my fingers after i glued the model. Not to sand so hard that i leave a flat surface where it should be rounded.

Nice model plane. I supposed the wheel can't retract?
