EF-2000 Typhoon

I did it! Fifty builds in one year. It wasn’t a simple task to achieve but it was fun to have a challenge other than the build itself. To be honest, I am not sure if I will take this challenge next year. It was a great side project to take on, but I don’t want to turn building my models into just numbers. My goal is for quality kits and not quantity. I’m sure I will hit close to the fifty mark again, but I’m not going to stress it in 2015.
The Typhoon was a great kit to put together. This build should have been completed quite a while ago. Thanks to my procrastinating, it sat until the F-15 was ready to paint.
Construction went great. There were really no huge issues to handle. The usual gap here and there, but nothing out of the ordinary. I made a last minute decision to go with German markings instead of British. I’m still on the fence about that one but I think it looks good.
So that’s it. I don’t foresee the Tornado being completed in two days so I can confidently say that the Typhoon is the final build of 2014.

    • Thank you! I’m glad I could inspire you. I greatly look forward to seeing the P-61. I have been wanting to try the salt technique out so I want to see how yours turns out.
      As far as the completed kits. The newly built ones go up on the shelf. When the shelf gets full, I rotate them into a storage bin lined with shelving paper until I can get enough space to display them all.
