THIS MODEL INCLUDES A METAL DISPLAY STAND.
1:72 Scale Metal Diecast – EuroFighter EF-2000 Tyhoon - Royal Air Force – Length: 8.75" Wingspan: 6”
This model is a single seater and it includes a pilot figure as well as 2 and 3 fuel tanks for the wings and fuselage. It also includes a detailed landing gear as well as the cover of the wheel wells to give the appearance of in-flight.
The pilot, missiles and landing gear parts need to be put in place. Patience and care are needed to avoid damage an/or breakage.
The parts that need to be attached/assembled onto the model like the landing gear, wheel well covers and missiles for the wings and fuselage are snap fit (friction fit) and do not required glue, however, one needs to be very careful are pieces are very fragile and could break.
The cockpit canopy can open and close and like the assembly pieces, one needs to be very careful when moving it as it is very fragile and could easily break.
This is a limited edition model with a total of 600 pieces. A card similar to a credit card is included in which it has the serial number for the model.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The box measures 11.5 inches by 11.5 inches by 4 inches.
