  1. Evening All, Was debating whether or not to enter this GB as wasn't convinced I'd complete in time, I'm a leisurely modeller, especially at the beginning when its all the fiddly bits I'm not that good at! However, with a deadline into December, I ought to be OK. I got a Revell GR.1 for Christmas a couple of years ago just after they'd gone out of service so this GB was rather timely. I'm doing this pretty much OOB, although undecided on markings at this point. Might stick to the 9 sqn in the kit or go after market for something else. Also unsure about the weapons, b
  2. 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 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. Starting this tiny Tornado IDS, Revell 1/144. As other recent Revell kits in this scale, this one is beautiful, with enough parts to assemble a very decent cockpit, wheel wells and landing gear, fine negative scribing, moving elevators, swinging wings (although choosing that option, means not using any underwing ordnance...). Two marking options, I don´t really like the Tigermeet scheme, but I´ll assemble that same Tornado (43+46) in the Norm 87D scheme used when transferred from the Marinenflieger to the Luftwaffe (no Tiger stripes this time). I started with the coc
  4. Italeri is to release a new tool 1/32nd MRCA Tornado GR.4 kit in 2018-2020 - ref. 2513 Source: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235015790-news-italeri-2017/ V.P.

  6. Hi gents and gals, with the imminent release of Eduard Tornado Gr.1 in 1:48, I started a page of what to use, decals etc etc. Then, I decided, what the hell, I can make it for other scales too. So, long story short. Here is the ultimate How to on Gulf war Tornadoes. It is still in progress, mainly the F.3/ADV part. If you have any additions/corrections/ideas, please let me know. Thanks ! Gulf war Tornado How-to
  7. Eduard is to rebox with add ons the Revell 1/48th MRCA Tornado GR Mk.1 "Gulf War/Desert Babe" kit - ref. 11136 Expected in March 2020.Source: http://www.kitreviewsonline.de/eduard-pressekonferenz-in-nuernberg/ V.P.
  8. 617 "Dambusters" Squadron - A Tribute Morning all! I hope that you are all well and keeping cool in the stiflingly hot weather that we've been having recently! To cut a long story short, last year was my first time at RIAT (and wow, if you haven't been before then I absolutely recommend it), As part of the RAF100 celebrations a flypast was arranged to pay tribute to the legendary 617 "Dambusters" Squadron with a trio of aircraft that they have flown throughout the squadron's life: the BBMF's Lancaster, a Tornado GR4 (courtesy of 41 Sqn), and a brand-new F-35
  9. The beginning of an xmas present. 1/32 revell tornado gr1 gulf war. 10 hours in so far.
  10. Yeah, i'm a kind of "Tornadaholic"! I'm already building a Tonka for the "a kit you built as a kid" GB, now it's time to double the trouble. This is my new poject: a Saudi Gr.1 using the Hobby Boss kit. I know is not the best game in town, but i have this kit in my stash and it's time to build it. With a little help from sme resin bits: aires whell bays and airbrakes, master pitot tube, resim wheels. I'm waiting for eduard's Boz and Sky Shadow and a Print Scale decals sheet to make a saudi aircraft I will use also some parts from an aborted Revell bu
  11. The German air force has been looking for a Tornado replacement for some time and now it looks as if a decision has been made: https://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/inland/bundeswehr-deutschland-will-eurofighter-und-f-18-beschaffen-16697183.html https://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/inland/kramp-karrenbauer-ueber-tornardo-nachfolger-bis-ostern-entscheiden-16699549.html At the moment, it looks as if Germany is to buy 45 Super Hornets and 78-90 additional Typhoons (known as Eurofighter over here). The split purchase is explained by the fact that the Tornado serves in four roles
  12. On holiday at home relaxing watching railway drivers eye view video's on & spotted two aircraft parked on an industrial estate in Knutsford - Jet Provost & what appears to be a Hawk, further investigation via Google street view aso shows a Tornado at the same premesis. Anybody know the background? On the left at around 57 min 10s into the followng video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSr0EXGxpdE

  14. 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
  15. This is the first finish of 2020, a Revell 1/72 Tornado GR1 finished in 1998 17 Sqn colours from Bruggen. Built OOB except for the ubiquitous PJ Productions resin crew mates. Painted with Hataka modern RAF paints. The decals are the stock ones and didn't want to sit very well even on a very glossy surface and with lashings of microsol/microset. However not too displeased with the finished result Base is made from a beechwood kitchen draw front.
  16. So, after quite a few ups and down and some shocking fit issues and terrible instructions here is my tribute to the loss of a modern legend. The kit is the Revell 1/48 GR4 with Eduard cockpit and UK RBF tags, CMK seats, Master pitot tubes and Scratch built TARDIS display and AIM-132 asraams. Also a shout out to Pete Tasker who provided me with some stunning shots of her on her last low level sortie through the lakes as a reference! edit_C2A1086 by Rob Jones, on Flickr edit_C2A1079 by Rob Jones, on Flickr edit_C2A1064 by Rob Jones, on Flickr edit_C2A1065 by Rob Jones,
  17. With apologies to Manfred Mann... 2019 is a sad year as the Tornado is being taken out of RAF service, with any luck they will struggle on in Luftwaffe and Aeronautica Militare service for a couple more years but I have decided to spend 2019 building as many Tornado's as I can keep enthusiasm for as a tribute to this marvellous aeroplane. Born out of the 20 years of procurement failures by all nations concerned, TSR.2, Lockheed Scandal etc etc the Italian, German and British governments set about the MRCA project. Unkindly referred to as 'Must Replace Canberra Again' t
  18. Hi All, I don't seem to recall ever posting a W.I.P. on BM, which is very remiss of me, so I thought I'd share my current build - Airfix's 1/48 Tornado GR.1 in the 'Desert Storm' Boxing. It's a kit that doesn't seem to have much of a good reputation. the fit is indeed awful, but so far I've enjoyed it - so much so that I've ordered another GR.1A, a GR.1B, a GR.4 and an F.3... It's been pretty much OOB, with the addition of a PE cockpit, and although I've kept the raised panel lines on this one I have rescribed the missing detail along the seam
  19. Any thoughts on how to replicate the 'swing wing boots' (I'm sure they have a more technical name) on a 1/48 Tornado? I was thinking of using foil or some such material - The Airfix kit has a rather nasty looking gap aft of the wing that I'd like to try and sort out - I'm not after Mega-accuracy but it's be good to have something.
  20. Hi, getting round to starting the GR4 that's been sitting round for ages. Going to be building Goldstar farewell scheme
  21. Hi folks I’ve finished this tonight and have taken photo’s in the garage under LED lighting as it’s way too gusty outside. The story of this started for me as a kid spotting at Boscombe Down during any holiday. I vividly remember the Tornado there and it flying locally and over the ranges at Larkhill. Fast forward to modern times and information becomes available that the aircraft I was watching was XZ630. This was the 12th pre-production aircraft so wasn’t the final build standard. These aircraft were given “P” numbers and thus was known as P.12. The kit - I really only build 1/32
  22. So I had a great trip to RAF Cosford last week and my photos which I took with modelers in mind have had a great response on Facebook. Someone asked me to share them here so here's a link. Backstage at RAF Cosford Admins if you need me to split this up so it's more specific I expect I can Enjoy I did Alan
  23. Hi I'm a little late with starting this, but I hope my choice of build will be welcome. I'll be using the fairly new Revell 1/48th Gr 4, together with Eduard photoetch interior and belts, and Xtradecal decals. Initial photos to follow soon. Steve
  24. Sorry if I got anyone excited... just wondering if there was any news on this kit which is so obvously coming based on the internal frames in the GR.4 & IDS kits. If nothing else maybe a lot of interest in this thread will make Revell pull their finger out?
  25. Am looking for some help, have been asked by a friend to build an F3 ADV for them. Simple question, who produces the better kit in 1/48 ? Thanks
