Created as a co-operative attempt by Germany, Italy and the UK to construct an air superiority fighter, the Eurofighter Typhoon took its first flight on March 27, 1994. The Eurofighter was a twin-engine, combat aircraft used in air-to-air, air-to-ground, and tactical reconnaissance roles. It was intentionally built aerodynamically unstable, which allowed it its high levels of agility. However, this meant that the Typhoon was controlled by a computerized "fly by wire" system instead of a pilot.
Replicating a Typhoon F.2 as it was originally created, is this 1/72 scale, Hobby Master, die cast model that is painted gray with markings from RAF No. 3 Sqn, ZJ927. It comes with features, such as an open canopy that shows a detailed cockpit, interchangeable extended/retracted landing gear, a presentation stand, and detachable ordnance loads. Constructed with metal with some plastic components, it measures 9" long and 6" wide.
