1/48 Revell Tornado 'Foxy Killer'


Recommended Posts

Certainly not a straight forward build, i had a few problems with the xtracrylix paint and also the aftermarket decals were extremely fragile. Also had problems with the sidewinder mount, i ended up ditching the sidewinders as theyre not that great.
Anyway, we got there in the end, so here she is. I knew i would forget to take the masks of the targeting pod! And I noticed on the pics that one of the lights on the gear door had fallen off, luckily i found it on the floor and has now been glued back on.

Kit: Revell
Scale: 1/48
Type: Tornado IDS
Extras used: decals, eduard photoetch cockpit and crew ladder, Hindenburg tanks and Paveway bombs from the old airfix kit.
Paints used: Xtracrylix and Tamiya

That is one beautiful Tornado and your weathering is spot on. I know you've made it look spectacular, but regarding the kit itself would you recommend it in terms of fit etc?

Thanks very much for the comments guys! Much appreciated!

Selwyn, The bombs and the fuel tanks were stolen from an old airfix kit!

Arfa, Just a grey primer, black preshading, then 3 light coats of desert pink.

Vivkulan, Its Xtracrylix desert pink, FS10279.

Notty, there's a couple of bits which need attention but nothing major. I think i would certainly build another so yes id recommend it!
