I’ve got the 1/72 scale version of that kit, but not built it yet. Is the 1/35 one so bad? ISTR reading an article about it by someone who improved it, but not in such major ways that the base kit seemed totally wrong.
Jakko,
I hope they have finally sent the 'rubber' tyres to the fire, I cast my own but that is as far as the build has progressed, but the Meng one looks inviting, must have a look at a review.

I built the 1 72 version from Roden and the kit was not good. However it did go together okay.

I saw somebody make his own tyres on the 1 35 Roden version out of wood and they were awesome.

I think the subject is a great one to build and I would luv to see how the MENG one turns out

Now, what does "200mm" mean, on the 'New' Typhoon, Dragon etc? Surely it doesn't mean 1/9 scale? Anyone any idea?
Dave,

Have found these kits as "coming soon" on a.n. other web site - it refers to them as 1:200 scale.

200mm (20cm) is only just under 8". So probably 1/72 at a guess?
Out of curiosity I just used an online scale calculator using the EF-2000 Typhoon dimensions (W 11 meters / H 5.3 meters / L 16 meters) - that gives a model size approximately 55 mm wingspan / 26 mm height / 80 mm length.

Wow your own pocket air force !!! :smiling5::smiling5::smiling5:
