The Airfix A50098 Eurofighter 1:72 scale gift set complete with paint, glue and brushes was quite disappointing. The quality of the moulded parts was in several cases very poor, and needed some degree of additional work to ensure the parts correctly aligned or fitted, for example, the vertical tail (in two parts) did not slot into the recess within the fuselage upper body without significant work, and it was deemed easily possible to over cut and therefore ruin the model accordingly. Other parts that were poor fitting or moulded, included the front sensor on left side of front fuselage, and the air-intake assembly (which again needs lots of work to eanble it to fit correctly). The paints provided were sufficient to complete the model, however, the pots of 130 and 165 sadly did not give an authentic finish. In regard to accuracy of the model, for a 1:72 scale model this is deemed to be quite good.

The model is good but the pilot was missing from the kit. I decided to keep the model anyway.

You probably can get away with the paint brushes supplied, but I decided to buy a variety of brushes to make the build easier.

Arrived badly damaged. Parts broken, paint pots everywhere. Paint included was not as show on box. I received 6 shades of grey. If you want an Airfix product best to get in shop. easily broken in transit.

My 10 year old son was very disappointed with this set. He received it as a Christmas gift and was so excited to be building it as I actually worked on the design of the real aircraft for BAe Systems.
Upon opening the box and pulling out the instructions it was very disconcerting to find that the instructions were for a Jaguar E Type Car, not for the Eurofighter Typhoon. Never mind we thought, let's search online for the instructions and continue....
we found the instructions and then realised that out of the 3 sheets of small parts, 2 were the identical and 1 was missing.

Good quality model etc, but bought as a stocking filler, when opened last month it turns out there were all the parts and no instructions for assembly. They are available in pdf if you seriously hunt online, but this was quite a pain having already paid for the full kit. And a bit of delayed disappointment

A very good kit, and not too hard to complete, cockpit layout very good, and quite easy to paint too.

I purchased this Dr Who figure (base on K. L. Naylors review) to go with my 1:72 scale model of the Tardis, as you can imagine I was extremely disappointed with the result. Whilst this model is a fine example of a RAF Eurofighter Typhoon, it is an extremely poor model of Dr Who.
No matter how much I try I cannot get the doctor into the Tardis as his arms (which have the appearance of delta wings for some reason) refuse to pass through the door.
Additionally the doctors trademark scarf seems to have been replaced with some new-fangled triangular canard style abortion. These basic faults coupled with anatomical inaccuracies such as a lack of legs or a head leave me wonder how this product made it to market.

In summary:
- If you are after a decent size model of a Eurofighter typhoon, this fits the bill nicely. I would however recommend purchasing some additional paint and a few brushes to replace the ones supplied as they are not of the greatest quality.
- If you want a model of Dr Who, I wouldn’t bother.
