Italeri 1:72 Eurofighter (Red Arrows)
« on: July 17, 2017, 03:09:03 pm »
Proving once again that I refuse to take anything, even a hobby, seriously, I present the latest what-if from the 72 Land production line.

This is the Italeri Eurofighter 2-seater. Decals came from various Hawk sheets and the serial number was chosen pretty much at random. The biggest challenge was the white stripe swooping down the side; you can see where there has been some patching done. Unless the Royal Mail changes its policy about shipping enamel paints, this will likely be my last Red Arrows model, since I used up the last of my Xtracolour supply.

This is completed aircraft #478 (11 aircraft, 2 ordnance, 11 vehicles for the year 2017), finished in July of 2017. As always, you can find further details and my ongoing paint and construction log in the 72 Land Blog as referenced in the sig line below.





All hail 1:72!

Nice. Something for the MoD to consider. They are looking at replacing the Hawks of the reds.
