1/72 Revell Eurofighter Typhoon

Spanish Air Army

by Tigre del Aire



Hello! Greetings from Colombia! The Eurofighter Typhoon forms a part of the cooperation between European countries to make a pure fighter European, initially it was known as EAP and now it is known as the Typhoon; this model represents one of the Spanish planes of the army of the air.
The model is from Revell, it's armed out of the box, the original decals were used and the configuration of the armament was changed a bit.  The cockpit is very easy to assemble and the detail is very good.
This kit did not contain pilot figures, so I used pilots from another kit.  To dress up the figures I painted the Spanish flag and details of the flag of Barcelona on the figures, one of the crew members has a moustache, very cool!

For a 1/72 scale model, this kit has a very good level of detail and the decals are colourful and stick well to the surface of the painted model.


As a final detail, I did a runway diorama base from which it applied snow that was beside the runway; the base is done in wood and the snow was done with a mixture of bicarbonate and pegante for wood, to which I applied transparent brilliant lacquer in order to give the snow it's own sheen.
One of the crewmembers is directing the aircraft and in order to give this figure a higher level of realiam I painted to it the Spanish flag and the Squadron patch on the chest of the uniform.
I wholeheartedly recommend this model, it is enjoyable to build.
