ITALERI 1/48 tornado THE SAINT


Recommended Posts

The one aircraft iv been wanting to do is finished,and so is my affair with italeri models.Nothing fitted,missing parts,masses of filler,decals fell to bits,parts fell to bits.Everything that could go wrong with a model this is it.If you like to loose your temper ,be frustrated,swear ,cuss.Even couldnt take a decent photo of it during the build ,Oh i could go on but never mind whats done is done ,onwards and upwards.

Hello and welcome to the Forum,Skiny.

She may have fought you all the way and given you a few headaches but that happens to us all.

I reckon you've won the battle with this Tornado.I think this special scheme really looks good and so does her in-flight pose.She's armed to teeth and going to make someone's day.Well done,that man.

πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ All the best,Paul.

Might I suggest trying to take photos with as much lighting as you can provide and a solid color background?

Suggestion noted,im disabled not a photographer, and the kitchen is the best room for light.

Looks like a Tornado!

The Italeri model is certainly not the easiest to do! But managed to finish her! Congrats!

If parts keep braking off and apart, you might us a different glue next time?

Cheers, Werner

Nice scheme , always a battle to build this kit.

For real authenticity you might like to lose the US HARM missiles (that the RAF never used)Β and replace them with ALARM Missiles?
