What are some of the "Best" kits for doing either a 1/32 or 1/48 Eurofighter Typhoon?

Thanks,
James Sontag

I have the Revell 1/48 single seater, Kit #04568. There was an earlier version that was not so good accoding to reviews. Overall I think it’s a pretty good kit. Not an expert but looks good to me. Have not finished it yet because the canopy cracked when I was trying to clean up the mold seam. From checking the reviews it seems (no pun intended) to be a common problem. I got a replacement from Revell for free, but that was before the financial woes debated at length a few months ago.  I moved on to a different kit and will return to the Typhoon later this year. I’m doing mine in Luftwaffe colors rather than RAF.  From reviews and discussions on other forums the Revell kit is the best in 1/48.

The earlier Revell kit was reboxed Italeri. Not a great kit.

So, true. I won one on eBay when I didn't realize that were different Revell Typhoons out there… 😒

In 1/48, the new tool Revell kit is the way to go.  In 1/32, both the Trumpeter and Revell kits have their pros and cons.  Generally, the Revell kit is thought of being a little better as the Trumpeter kit has undersized exhausts.

One of the problems is finding the Revell kits these days.  Even before the bankruptcy issue, the Typhoon kits were somewhat scarce in both scales.

Unfortunately Revell is the only way to go in these large scales and it is far from perfect, non very detailed not easy to assembly. Best one overall is Hasegawa in 72 scale, hope one day it will be scaled up!
