Thanks Iain, looks to be nice set , but I'd rather have a decent intake set .. something the kit desperately needs

Seconded - and one of the reasons I haven't started a Typhoon yet...

Bought this along with the Aires single seat cockpit set and one of the nozzles sets. Like others here, am waiting for a new engine duct assembly *and* something like a G-factor replacement NLG strut.

I've got the 'pit too Tony - really nice!

 

If I get a chance I'll put together a quick overview of that set for other members...

For a weird reason, noone in UK released similar sets to the 2mikes APU, pylon and intake cover sets...!

 

I consider to be lucky enough to have ONE set of each but I have two kits! And I know a lot of guys who would be happy to find at least ONE set.

Someone over on our Facebook page has asked how well the Aires parts fit the Revell kit - so I will dig out a kit and add some more images/notes when I get a chance, probably early next week.

I have an abandoned Tiffie in the loft with the wheel bays fitted, if I remember right they went in ok, it was the nozzles that done me in. They are too large and the back end requires a fair bit of sanding to get them in and the petals just break when you look at them. I will dig it out and take a few pics of the Aires parts.

Oooh now I've got the 2 seater with the APU and pretty sure the intake cover, wheels bays look nice but mines also in the troposphere waiting to be started.
