Mere observations, it's a bit gappy .... there's probably more. Not really a typhoon fan. Is it me ... or does the pilot appear to be suffering from a cardiac arrest?

This looks good. Hoping they make AMI versions as well.

The ejection seat looks a bit dodgy, and not particularly well executed.

It's a really neat looking jet. Something about the shaft which the canards rotate on do not look right to me. I think its the "bump" on the fuselage, and how the shaft comes out through the middle of it. I put a picture of the real bird. I'm sure we'll see one from Hobby Master with less colorful emblems, I will go for one of those.

It’s an illusion created by the distortion when viewed through the clear canopy..

Yes it is very gappy!! Hopefully rectified by the time it's released. Shouldn't have gaps in this era of model making ( 2020) as this is something that happened a decade ago when 1/72 models were just being produced. The pilot and seat is another thing they should've refined by now!

FYI, a feature that is missing in OP's photo spread, the canards move.

Would really like to get to know who is the person responsible for new HM models research / preparation?


Is he blind? Half-blind? Color blind? Is he overloaded with other work? Does he have just minutes for every new release to research? Or is it just a lazy, irresponsible jerk?

Of course its HM internal business, but really would wonder whom does HM employ on this vitally important position because it looks like this person doesn´t much good for the company. Looking on how many unnecessary, easily preventable and difficult to correct mistakes every and each new HM model shows, i wonder such person wasn´t fired long time ago .


Its not a rocket science, for God's sake! Its only about to look and see.

Unbeliavable...

Here's hoping that HM produces all nations that deploy the Typhoon.

Austrian AF included.
