Tornado IDS - Operazione Locusta

Hi,

I have decided not to talk to my Saudi Tornado for the time being.

Then, one weekend, I went to a friend's and started another Tornado, this time an Italian IDS one.

So after that weekend work, there it was;

I didn't weigh the nose, which proved wise, as the model is nose heavy.

I chose Gunze H404 to paint it, but it seems a bit not yellow enough for me...

Tailplanes are painted, and the decals are started.

A few wheels later...

Let's start with the underwing stores: fuel tanks and Hasegawa Sidewinders (those in the Revell kit are awful).

Now with all underwing stores displayed:

Flaps are on (after some entertaining incidents involving a colossal brainfart):

One matt coat later, and some soot added to the fin:

Now, the slats are added;

And now we add the Mk.83 bombs a friend was kind enough to provide:

Tadaa! Done:

Great work!

Thanks,

 

As it was my first Tonka, I didn't know yet the do's and don't's of this model.

Five Tornadoes later, I think I kinda know how to build it now...

I don't know yet what the next Tornado will be.

GR1 Granby? Norm 83 Luftwaffe ? RSAF original camo?

 

Cheers,

please show them all!

Eduard is set to release a Granby boxing of the Revell kit... so I would wait until all the Brassin bits are awailable as well ;) 

I fancy doing a 3/4tone green Luftwaffe scheme with 4/5 Matra bombs one day....

For RAL colors, have you tried the Zero paint range from Hiroboy? They got all RAL references.

wow!

 

looking at those, I'd say you should go for a late GR4.... with Brimstones, PIV, Asraam, etc... ;) , or a  camo Saudi IDS with PWIIs...

 

great! I only did 2 F3s for now, an Airfix!! one and the Italeri with Paragon flaps and slats....  need to follow up on those! ;)

The all-grey Tornadoes are quite low on my list, sorry.

And stop hurting yourself, try a nice model of the Tornado for once.
