Dang,,, those are looking good.  :)
I'd say "EuroEagle. Not to scale, wings could be scaloramed"      Can tinker with wing size or leave as is !

Bored the other night, I was running random searches on eBay and ran across a couple of 1/48 kits of this plane and now I'm considering a forward-swept wing Eurofighter as a possible project.

I would like to do a Typhoon in a scheme such as this:

I was thinking about an RN one, but wouldn't it have CATOBAR nose gear with twin wheels ?

Back in the early '90s Germany was investigating a cheaper version.  Here are some of the options looked at:

It would be interesting to do a single engined variant.
