Tornado warning 5 Sept- 6 December 2020

Recommended Posts

Hi Chaps 

I noticed on the news today that the mighty Tonka will be stood down in March 2019 after 40 years of active service. Many of the members on here like myself will remember them entering service. Comments about them never going to be able to replace the v bombers were well founded but it seems to have filled it's niche well. The Tonkas served in several theatres and have been a success story to all involved. 

One thing that I don't think we've seen is a Tornado Group build. Early on the kits were slow to be released and we only really got some good 1/48 kits in the last few years. 

So how about a Tonka GB ?

There have been a few Tornado GBs beforehand, but not since 2015, so count me in.

In. Got several italeri kits with various correction sets to do. Luftwaffe Tonkas acceptable?

I’m in too, having refuelled the F3s and road moved both types, it’s an aircraft close to me.

this one sounds good to me, I've been wanting to add a Tornado to the collection, will be a Luftwaffe one, maybe a Tiger Meet one!

 

Who turns out the best one in 1/48th?

Hi Chaps. 

Well we're 12 after 1 week so the omens are good. 

I think all Tornadoes are allowed. German, British, Italian and Saudi. All but the Germans flew the F3 as well as GR1 versions so lots of interesting schemes.

As far as the best kit goes well...

In 1/48 I've built 3 Italeri with resin corrections to give respectable GR1A, F3 and GR4. I had an Airfix 1/48 and it wasn't better so I used it as a base for the EFA. I haven't seen the new Revell or Hobby Boss ones but I gather the Revell on is pretty good. 

I have an LS 1/144 model which looks good but it's too small for me. 

As for other scales there's plenty of choice.

Sign me up and if you need a co-moderator I'm happy to help :) There's at least four suitable kits in my stash by way of two Revell 72nd scale GR.1/IDS and a couple of Italeri's 48th scale ADV. NO! No Enzo!

You can add me to the list, it's about time I build a model of my namesake.

When would that be?

Any chance of a special slot due to the current GR4 situation?

Good idea but there's a full calender of STGB this year so getting an extra slot is unlikely. Probably best case is to get in to the vote at the end of the year and ask Enzo for an early time.

Yep, I did the last Tornado GB in 2015 - great fun

Stash contents, all 1/72 scale:

Revell GR1,  (earmarked for 1990s NATO v WP Europe)

Airfix 617 Squadron GR4 Club Special,

Airfix F3 First and Last Club Special.

Revell F3 added at RIAT 2019.

I'm in.

 

I should do the GR4, as that's the one going out of service.

Go on then

I've got a GR1, 2 x  GR4 and and an F3 taking up space, all 1/48, so it's a fair amount of space :)
