  1. Well I thought I'd best join now the #BoB80 build is drawing to a close. I over extended a bit on that with lockdown, working from home so no commute etc, a couple of builds not finished and I have 2 helicopter builds still to get done on the next KUTA build. So lesson learned, I will do 2 builds, starting with this, pretty much OOB with crew from elsewhere. I am looking at what subject, I may go out and get some aftermarket decals - I have some Model Alliance Op Telic decals ( I was on the ground and never saw the RAF!) which give me a personal connection.

So lesson learned, I will do 2 builds, starting with this, pretty much OOB with crew from elsewhere. I am looking at what subject, I may go out and get some aftermarket decals - I have some already, plus I could also kill 2 birds with 1 stone modelling a 617 Sqn airframe.... I did build a 13 Sqn GR1A airframe in w
  3. Hi everyone and here's my Tornado F3 built for the 'Tornado Warning' Group Build. The short build thread is here but to recap: Kit: Tamiya (ex Italeri) Tornado F3 Scale: 1/72 Build: Out of box with tape for seatbelts Paints: Halfords plastic primer, Revell acrylics airbrushed, Klear, Flory Models Wash, 4B pencil Decals: XTRADECAL Tornado F.3 229 OCU/65 Sqn "Red Zebra display" scheme Extras: some panel lines rescribed. Notes: This aircraft ZE809 was lost in a non-fatal crash in June 1994 while flying with 111 Squadron. A seal around a high pressure shaf
  4. Tornado GR.1 "Gulf War" (03892) 1:32 Revell After the debacle that was the cancellation of the TSR.2, the European nations aligned (for once) in the common need for a new Multi-Role fighter, and partnerships began forming an dissolving, resulting in the joining of British Aerospace (now BAe), Aeritalia and MBB of Italy and Germany, who formed the Panavia company with a view to creating a Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MRCA). The basic design was a swing-wing airframe to provide good handling at high and low speeds, but with the usual problem of goal-posts being moved
  5. I have read numerous build threads here and elsewhere on the Revell Tornado kits, but none of them seem to show how perfect (or at least reasonable) inner intake seams were achieved, nor do they explain how. Having started my F.3 I came to the conclusion that intake covers would best be fitted to it, but with another three GR.1/4s and an IDS in the stash I would like to know if - and how - it is possible to get rid of those nasty seams. So, did any of you guys ever succeed in eliminating the intake seams? TIA, Jens
  6. Panavia Tornado GR.4/4a (ED-48117) 1:48 Euro Decals by Fantasy Printshop With the much loved Tornado now sadly in the rear-view mirror of the RAF, there's bound to be some nostalgia everywhere that the Fin, Tonka, call it what you will, gained fans. I'll always have a soft spot for it, as it was the frontline fighter/bomber of my youth, and it was always good fun at the airshows, especially the role demos that used to warm your eyebrows. The GR.4/a was the definitive variant that stayed in service to the end, and as such gets the lion's share of the attention, w
  7. Panavia Tornado GR.4/4A Pt.2 (ED-32120) 1:32 Euro Decals by Fantasy Printshop Revell have recently released their big Tornado in GR.4/4A guise, which we reviewed here. Euro Decals were johnny-on-the-spot and released Part 1 of this set late last year, which we also reviewed here, and now we have Part 2. Arriving in a large ziplok bag with a printed cover sheet and the decals behind, the instructions are found on the back of the cover page and on another sheet, with one side for each of the three options. The instructions show four views and the colour
  8. Tornado GR.4 Stencils (ED-32118, ED-48118, ED-72118) 1:32, 1:48, 1:72 EuroDecals by Fantasy Printshop Accurate stencils aren't always provided with model kits, and even when they are you don't always get a full complement, as the research is time-consuming and stencils take up space on a sheet. Fantasy Printshop have taken the trouble to create this sheet in the major scales (don't take it personally, 1:144) so that if you're not satisfied with the kit stencils, or you have an older kit that sometimes don't have stencils (this was a big thing back in the day), you
  9. Panavia Tornado GR.4/4A Decals (ED-32117) 1:32 Euro Decals via Fantasy Printshop The Tornado was Britain's main fighter-bomber from the 80s onward and still soldiers on in a reducing quantity at time of writing. It's main skill was as a bomb or missile truck, and although it was touted as a fighter in its Air Defence Variant (ADV), it wasn't the most manoeuvrable of aircraft. The F.3 has since been replaced by the Typhoon in British service, and the GR.4/4A is scheduled to be drawn down at the end of March 2019, thereby ending its career in British service.
  10. Well here is my first WIP. And I want to thank Frietag, Cheshiretauras and Shark65 for thier threads, which have seriously inspired me, so thanks guys! I have a feeling I may go a little A little background first...I'm an Ex-RAF Armourer who worked on Tornado's (GR1's, XV Sqn, and F3's, Tremblers) for 9 years. Love GR1's Despise F3's!! Work that out lol I've got 2 missions, the first is to build an XV Sqn Tonka in as many scales as possible, I have a 1:1 to play with as well at Bruntingthorpe ZA326. This is a 1/72, then I have the old Airfix 1:48 and Revel 1:144, both Xmas pressies, and
  11. Tornado F.3 ADV Upgrades (for Revell) 1:48 Eduard Revell gave us a new Tornado IDS in 1:48 to knock the ageing Italeri and the dubious Hobby Boss kits off the top, and have now tooled an ADV that British aviation enthusiasts know as the F.3, which was our interceptor for quite some time until the Typhoon took over in recent years. Eduard's new range of sets are here to improve on the kit detail in the usual modular manner. Get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a
  12. Hello Paul, i would like to commision this decal sheet for my 1/32nd Tornado. I have many pictures of the aircraft and its tail if they are needed. Best regards, Rob
  13. Hello, and for today yes it is me again. This Tonka has been started during the last Tonka Group Build, but because of work and other stuff it stayed on my workbench for quite a while. Like most of my Tonkas it built out of the box with decals from Mark 1 Publication and some others that have been found in my secret box. Hope you like it:
  14. Hello, it is me again and another Tonka that I want to show you. It is built completely out of the Box, painted with Revell Colors and Airbrush. The Decals are perfect and I really like the result. And here are the pics:
  15. Hello, this is my last topic for today, the black Tonka from Italy. I used the Revell Kit to creat this nice Aircraft. The decals are from Syhart. It was not the easiest to apply them to the Kit and I am not a 100% happy with the result. Another task was to paint it extremely black, almost like dust on it, but I think it looks good enough. And again here are some pics:
  16. Hello Guys, just another Tonka that I want to show you. Lucky me, and finally, I finished this one. Started that Tonka almost two years ago, but stopped working on it somehow. Now, motivated by this forum and the Special Interest group of Tonkas, I finished this one here. It is the good old Revell Kit, with a huge sheet of decals. I thought it will never end to apply them, but it did. Aircraft has been painted with Tamiya Colors and an Airbrush. I like the result, and here are some pictures for you:
