    Tornado RWR shape help

    I’ve had a session in my reference books and found the following: “1st of batch 3 Aircraft, An immediately discernible difference is the wider RWR fairing on the fin”. Taken from a picture title of p185 Tornado by Francis K. Mason and “but there is no standard RWR. Each nation having adopted its own solution.” Taken from Aviation Fact File, Modern Fighting Aircrafr -Tornado, p36. I didn’t know this at all and explains the various shapes when you look closely. Time to get cutting. Steve.

    Tornado RWR shape help

    Hi all, I am building the 1/32 Revell Tornado GR.1 of the Ltd edition re-release from a couple of years ago. The fin is assembled and I’m at the point of adding the front RWR Antenna. Now it looks way too long and is of a weird shape. Having looked at a few photos the moulding seems to be of the ECR version. Before I get the razor saw out can you give me your thoughts. I’m planning on a RAF GR.1 80/90 aircraft. it just doesn’t look right. Steve.
  3. I can’t believe that is 1/72. A brilliant rendition of the Hawk. Steve.

    Tornado Paragon wing glove - anyone used them?

    I’ve just discovered Teds corner and cutting is required.
  5. Hi gang, I’m doing the 1/32 Tornado and I have the Paragon Flaps & Slats AM set. The wing glove/bag is a million miles away from the kit part and will require some serious cutting to make it fit. The instructions say replaces kit part, but this will be a tall order. Anybody previously done it, as I just want to check before I start cutting....... Steve.

    As mentioned above, great build of a challenging kit. I did an RAF Germany one from the Fighter Pilot series. Right service in proper colours, after all we say nowadays grey jets are boring. Steve.
  9. Wow now that’s shocking, they actually charge money for that?. Silver lining and all that, your stamina has shown through when most including me would have given up ages ago Steve.

    Put up or shut up!!

    Quite like you. If it can’t be fixed with a Hammer, it’s an electrical fault. I too used to be a member of the Salisbury club but moved slightly too far away, so gave up the club scene also not being able to find the time. very good Mustang by the way. Steve.
  12. I’m not into trains at all but I watched the first one for the modelling aspect. I too as above thought it was ok but that team boss got just deserts. Anyway I thought the programme was dented by the unique scratch build element. My wife used to watched a home makeover programme on BBC2 that had that beardy bloke in it that also had a weird challenge during the programme, so perhaps he has bought it with him?. Steve.

    Lovely Keith, I’ve seen the build across the months and it looks spot on, exactly like the reference photo’s he has been using. Steve.
  14. That is great, I mean really great . Steve.
