I do have pictures of Op Telic Tornado GR4s with this type of ladder.

Thanks Jabba, but I was more thinking of an Op Granby GR.1, if the promised Eduard (Revell) kit ever arrives!

 

Cheers,

Does this picture help, it's a scan of an old newspaper photograph from January 1991 showing the ladder.

More knowledgeable heads may be able to confirm but I have seen this ladder referred to as an "RAF Germany" ladder even though it was used by both UK and German based squadrons.

It does Richard, good Op Granby evidence. Great picture too, despite being a newspaper scan. Thanks.

One day, one day in the far and distant future, it's intended to be the inspiration for a diorama.

LP Models make beautiful 3D printed ladders.

 

Does anyone know if the 1/72 ladder for the Tornado GR.4 would also be correct for a GR.1?

Hi,

I do believe that this ladder type has been used on Tornadoes since Prototypes
