Well I've brought the Typhoon to completion, apart from one little extra. I was hoping to create a flight stand using a telescopic aerial I salvaged but I forgot to pre-drill a hole in the fuselage to stick it in. My other idea was to affix a rare earth magnet to the underside and stick the aerial to that. My question is does anyone have a rare earth (small but powerful) magnet they could spare? I thought there's no point buying a whole packet when I only need one.
Anyway apart from that I've finished.
Went and saw the Avengers movie with my son today, it was great, lots of laughs too.
Enjoy the pictures. You may notice I still managed to get glue smudges on the canopy- I tried really hard not to. The whole thing had a coat of Testors Dullcoat, and then the canopy was glued on. I had to use some PVA to fill some unsightly gaps where the canopy meets the cockpit area- so a heads up for the other blokes who are building this kit. Mine is not a museum quality build, I'll admit it, but it serves my purpose of providing the Brtitish with air support on the wargames table.
