Hi all,

The newest RAF Typhoon Squadron to form (6 Squadron) gave me a chance to practice some DIY decaling, allowing me to finish the model just under three weeks after it's big brother deployed to RAF Leuchars.

These printer-made custom decals have their pros and cons as is discussed on the following forum thread.

Feeling that this was relatively successful, I then modelled `Faith` of 1435 Flight, one of the resident Typhoons defending the Falkland Islands.

I gave the Revell Typhoons the usual detailing to bring them up to scratch and look forward to more custom decalling.

Hope you enjoy.
