Wow... Interesting project. Following!
What happened to the ModelCollect kit?

Big amout of work ahead... Good luck! I'm also waiting for the Modelcollect kit, like for the MT-LB and the new MAN A1 stuff that was anounced already a year ago.

As is typical on all of my projects, I like to work dumb instead of smart. I got too excited and didn’t add any counter...

Following too. This beast needs a lot of weight - I once have assembled it...

You could try drill a hole at the bottom and somehow, push in some nose wight into the hole somehow, and patch up the hole I am thinking. I like using wood glue for gluing together tiny balls of metal (iron?). Usually, it is a bit messy because the metal balls are so small.

I ended up just cutting through the seam with my x-acto knife. The glue was still soft enough that it cut fairly easily. It was a bit of a pain to glue back together again. The leading edge and trailing edges aren't quite lined up, so there'll be plenty of sanding

I'm glad i kept them, although they were quite fiddly to get on there

Re. photo 45 and silvering. I suspect that adding some decal liquid before adding the decal might help (I never really bother doing that myself. Adding Microsol (iirc) should help a little making the decals stick, but one have to avoid fiddling with the decals after being brushed with Microsol (soften the decals).

Good luck with the numerous long black decals on the top side. I had to work smartly and do some dry fitting to make sure I could make the line decals connect in the end on my 1:144 model. Removing some adhesive from Tamiya masking tape and taping some of the decals on for "dry fitting" might help.
19. May, 14:15

i used sol before and set after getting them in place for all of the decals. Unfortunately, it didn't help much. Even with the gloss coat I put on, the texture is still fairly rough, so im suspecting that is the cause of a lot of it. I ordered some glosscote, and will give the aircraft a good coating of that before I add any more decals. Hopefully that is the cause of the issue

How so? Many parts for landing gear and canopy? 🙂
24. June, 14:16
Reaper_lead
less so the landing gear itself, but the gear and weapons bays, as well as the cockpit detail is astonishing for 1:72
24. June, 17:37

also, the riveting, and texture of the exterior panels is fantastic

It took much longer than I expected, but I am very happy with the result. I was contemplating making some simple tow bars for the aircraft being towed in as displayed, but decided I just wanted to be done with the project.

I've noticed that most people's projects have a small thumbnail with the teaser photo of the photo album in the project image. Mine don't, and I would like them to. Does anyone know, is there some setting you need to select for it to show up?

Cool markings and nice build, which color did you use?
2. November 2020, 16:55

Thanks! That is a supposed to be a mix of revell 49 and 76 at 50/50. I used 43 instead of 76

👍 that obviously nailed it 🙂 Seems there is no way around mixing if you want the bluish grey of our ef2000...

You'd think revell would have that as a standard color considering they're a german company, and the amount of typhoon kits they've released
