1:144 GB Revell Tiger Typhoon *Finished*

Post by Fumbles »

Running along with the Dragon X-29, I also picked up this little one. For such a small scale aircraft.... There are a lot of parts and the detail is amazing!

Box and bits first.

Cracking little kit. I built one earlier this year.

hmm all is quiet on the 1:144 build... Maybe launch another GB on the 15th of November to run along side?

Any ways.. I've made some progress on the two kits. First up is this Revell Tiger Typhoon, the amount of detail in this little kit is amazing. The copper/red took me a few tries to get it right. First spray was almost to orange/copper. So once it was dry, I added a top layer of Tamiya clear Red till what I think is the right shade?

I started the decals yesterday.. I didn't see the misaligning of the fuselage strips till looking at the full resolution picture. I'll have to touch up with some black paint afterwards.


Thanks for looking.

Just another quick update on the typhoon... The decal stripes are almost done. I just have to add a few strays and then build the fuel tanks with even more stripes. :)

Well these are my first two for the year long group build... they will probably be my only two fighters because of the size! I'm still stunned by the amount of decals alone on the Typhoon! My eyes still hurt lol. So I'll move onto the airliners and bombers now in mid to late January. First up is the a Typhoon. To give you an idea of how many decal stripes were on this kit... The fuel tank alone was 10 decals each! I tried to get shots of the kit with natural sunlight to show the copper/red paint. With the flash it looked too red if that

makes sense.

Thanks for looking

Very nice. I admire your ability on such tiny models. Airliners are small enough for me!
