Revell 1/48 Tornado Gr 4 - ZG750 Pinky

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I'm a little late with starting this, but I hope my choice of build will be welcome. I'll be using the fairly new Revell 1/48th Gr 4, together with Eduard photoetch interior and belts, and Xtradecal decals. Initial photos to follow soon.

Have made a little progress this week, so here's the first photos

 

In the box:

A selection of aftermarket - masks, pitot, control panels, seatbelts, and wing gloves:

It felt mean sanding off all of the detail from the Revell cockpit, but the metal parts look far better than I could paint

Seats are starting to take shape now:

Hopefully a bit more will get done this evening, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get all of the straps onto the seats without losing any!

After a lot of small parts pinging out of tweezers, I'm fairly happy with how the seats look. I decided to leave off a couple of the smallest parts as sometimes it's good to know when to stop.

Better late than never Steve. Some nice progress and the PE parts do make a difference :thumbsup:

Have made some more progress, fuselage is all together. Had a bit of a break for time at RIAT and a summer holiday. 

The air intakes are driving me mad, I've had a go with the filler, but still some unsightly gaps around those areas which need sorting before painting.
