This is my entry for KUTA VIII, four 1/144 Tornado's one from each of the countries that operate them. They were started for Merv's memorial GB and whilst a couple were close I failed to complete them by the date. I know that the GB remains open ended to allow further updates, but I want to get them finished off and this will hopefully give me the drive to do that. Two of the entries may be considered a little to advanced and if that is the case then I will gladly refrain from updating those, but here goes. First up is Dragons 1/144 F.3. This is the most advanced of the builds and needs the undercarriage doors and pylons adding, plus some paint touch up before a final varnish. The second model is Revells 1/144 Luftwaffe ECR and this needs tail planes, weapons, undercarriage doors and again a varnish coat Third is an Italian ECR and needs a lot more work than the other two and finally the model that is furthest behind is this, a 1/144 RSAF IDS
On this my second set of builds for the GB, I plan to use the Revell 1/144th kit for examples from Luftwaffe, Italian Airforce and RSAF. As the kits are basically the same I intend to include them as a single topic. If the mods would like me to split the builds then please let me know. The Luftwaffe example is an ECR in the 2011 Tiger Scheme and will be made out of the box For the Italian IDS - ECR I am going to use this kit and for the RSAF IDS I am using a GR1 kit. For the Italian and RSAF aircraft I am going to use decals from the excellent MARK1 book
Ok off with another group build. For this one i’m going nice and simple, no resin, no PE bit, no extras at all ............ ell it’s a bit hard to imagine a resin cockpit an PE bits for this scale! As this will be my first ever 1/144th scale model, I’ve chosen something nice a simple, Dragon Tornado F3, and guess probably 50% of the build will be Tonkas!!! This is a two in one model so I get to build two, think i’ll be leaving the U/C up (said it will be simple) and mount them flying in formation. Think this bit will probably take the longest. Obligatory pre-start pics. Gee it's small!!! Can’t wait to start as it will be a nice distraction from the beast which is the Ar234 (Battle for Reich GB), giving me a bit of grief at the moment. If I have time may try and fit in a second duo, had a great idea of a F-4 or F-14 intercepting a Tu-95 “Bear”. Would like to try and do an in-flight intercept just as these photos in 70’s and 80’s, though I don’t think I could find a Coke bottle small enough for the rear gunner to hold at the rear observation window!! Actually the more I think about it I could just use the Tonkas! Will see how time goes.
