Revell 1/48 Tornado F3

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! 

Just finished off revell's tornado f3 1/48. Challenging little build with the usral flash and fit issues! Lots of dry fitting. but was impressed with the detail in the kit. Was built strait out the box, with just resin wheels and jet nozzles added. Had an issue with a decal on the tail, enjoyed the build so much I've orded another kit to fix that problem.

Very nice - decal on the tail looks good from here. The resin really adds something. Those nozzles look brilliant. Great paint job all round. Love the weathering effects.

You`ve done a wonderful job on this flicknife,........  I opened mine and closed the box again because of the number of parts!! 

 

I remember watching these flying in and out of Leeming all the time while based at Catterick,..... funny what you take for granted eh,...... I`d love to see one airborne again!

 

All the best

That is really nice, well done. The metal around the jet pipes is particularly nice.

That's rather splendid and I definitely agree with those above about the rear end. Congrats.

That is a lovely build, not my scale or theme but it is very tempting to buy one!!!

 

Superbly finished and in clothes that I've not seen before.

It was the decal eagle on the otherside of the tail, It would't set very well. So it ended up peeling 🙄. Think i'll do the other markings on the next and use the spare eagle on this one! 😊

I was kindly given a couple of tail eagles not on the white background so did mine a a standard 23 Sqn.  Tempted to another one as well, so need to think about other decal options

Thats a very nice build there, love the dio with it too👌

Absolutly think I'll probs build the 111 sqn next. So I can use the 23 sqn decal on this one! But will be a little while yet as just put tamiya's F-14D 1/48 on the bench! 😊

Did fancy a standard tail 111 sqn, or 11 Sqn double Eagles.  Same boat - grey green 1/48 Jag on the go now, with more waiting after that.
