Just a placeholder while I finish a few other builds. 

This will be the Revell 1/72 Tonka with an extra bit of resin. Built as a 17Sqn bird from RAF Bruggen. 

A personal connection for me, although never being based there I knew the camp well, visited often from The Netherlands and was involved in the drawdown at the end, moving the Sqns back to the UK. 

Photos to follow.

Didn't we have 'Everything looks good in Camo wrap' for the Hawk build last year?

Subscribed.  I believe the Airwaves wing set was originally by DB Productions, and designed for Hasegawa's kit (the Revell tooling did not yet exist). Will be interested to see how they match up as I have the same resin in my stash.

I started a couple of days ago on the cockpit, here’s where it’s at

Happy with that, I really must post @nimrod54 his special specs back. :hypnotised:

now to tidy the resin wings, it can’t be as difficult as @trickyrich makes out :whistle:

Great job on the pit H. The resin wings are a nice addition and make quite a difference. I used a set on a build for a friend, when I got back into the hobby many years ago, and was impressed with the result.

haha....famous last words! :D

 

They do look quite nice. I don't know the flap system on the Tornado, but are they separated from the main wing when extended or still stay snug against the wing? With cleaning up, the slats looks like they might be the fragile bit. Oh and don't forget to give them a good wash first in warm water with some bleach added.

 

That cockpit is lovely, especially as it's 1/72nd!! :thumbsup:
