THIS MODEL IS TAIL HEAVY, SO IF RESTED ON ITS LANDING GEAR, THE MODEL WILL TILT UPWARD. (that is way there is no photo showing the model resting on its landing gear)
This Eurofighter Typhoon model is a single seat model and does include a pilot figure. The cockpit can not open. The landing gear is nicely detailed and is fixed in the extended position. Attached to the wings are a pair of external fuel tanks and attached to the fuselage are two pairs of medium range AA missles. A stand where the model can be attached for display is included. The display stand has the model's info such as country, flag and scale.
The maker of the model, Amercom, really did a good job with the model, the diecast metal construction feels quite heavy. The metal seems to be more rigid and thicker than comparable 1/100 scale models.
This model comes in a window box that measures 7 inches long by 7 inches wide by 4 inches high.
Unlike bigger models, there is nothing to assemble for these models. All weapons and fuel tanks are already attached to the model. One just needs to open the pack and display it (or play with it).
The packaging labels these model as "Collectible Product" and "Not suitable for children under 14 years".
The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine, canard-delta wing, multirole fighter. The Typhoon was designed and is manufactured by a consortium of three companies; Alenia Aermacchi, Airbus Group and BAE Systems, who conduct the majority of affairs dealing with the project through a joint holding company,Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH, which was formed in 1986. The project is managed by the NATO Eurofighter and Tornado Management Agency, which also acts as the prime customer.
