For my next build I'm going to finally do the 1/24 Typhoon. (I'm also posting this over on LSP for the Iron Rain GB there.) But I'm going to do the unthinkable and not bother with most of the copious interior detail. Why? Because I know I just won't enjoy all that fiddly painting and assembling, and secondly because I really like the look of this brute of an aircraft and want to display it all closed up. So I will be skipping some of the steps (which will hopefully also make it a little easier to close up) and making a beeline for the final paint job and weathering.
A bit of relaxing time at the bench tonight (actually at my office desk at home). The engineering on this kit is something else. It's very fun to put together. There are mold parting and ejector pin marks here and there, but nothing that will be too bad once this thing is closed up. The big thing is trying to work out how much I can glue together before I paint (and what I need to bother painting). I think this is about it before I will paint this and then start gluing painted parts on. The fit is so nice a small dab of super glue gel will keep most of painted parts on.
