I was trying to educate myself on the Tornado in Italian service in the 1980's, but I am finding it is not the easiest subject to research. You just have to love the Tornado in Italian camouflage with that aluminum underside and huge white codes. As far as I can tell, the Tornado entered service in Italy in 1982. In the second half of the 80's they were flown by two wings; 36th Wing at Gioia del Colle with 156 squadron and a yellow tail flash. 6th Wing at Ghedi by 154 and 155 squadrons both with red tail flashes. (And 102 squadron with a blue tail flash looks to have flow the Tornado from about 1993 I think) I am not sure if I have missed another squadron under the 36th or whether at this time they were still also using the F-104 as I have found photos of 36th Wing Starfighters dated as late as '87. And did the different squadrons carry additional markings or did they just pool Wing jets? If anyone can confirm or correct any of that and maybe even have knowledge of a resource I've not found, that'd be great. Edit: Of course, I forgot about their jets at Cottesmore with the TTTE.

Hello, I just finished the Trumpeter 1/48 Italian Air Force Grumman Hu-16 Albatross . I like this plane so I added a lot of features like engines, sound and lights. I had a lot to rework because nothing was "italian", but just a base version with italian decals (wrong and lacking). I had to add or modify a lot of antennas and other details and add or build lacking decals. I hope you like it.

We've all been there with our mental colour cards trying to figure out which is the correct green, peering at every conceivable book and internet resource. Even blindly following the recommendations of a bloke you ever met or heard of before. Painting strips of slightly different shades of green again and again slowly becoming mad and even more unsure of your choice. So after my little rant which Tamiya XF- green is the correct one or nearest to an Italian camo Panavia Tornado from the 80's. Hopefully one of you Tonka boys will help me out. thanks, Wayne
