Concerning the short range you also have to remember that the Tornado was primarily designed for the Cold War turned hot in the central European theatre. Any tactical targets would not have been too far away - the Tornado was a tsrike aircraft, not a true bomber. Besides, the F-111 is/was a much bigger aircraft.

However, and ADV with the longer fuselage, combined with the blunt IDS nose, could be a solution...?

I have the Revell BMW R65, bought cheap from a charity shop. It's either 1/8th or 1/6th scale, I am thinking of putting a scratch build sidecar on it.

Wierd stuff! I like it :)

One small point that I have noticed is that you don't paint the prop tips yellow on those planes that might have them in reality.


As we are talking about the P-142 Warhawk III here, how do you know the propeller tips were painted yellow?  ;D
In my universe no tips were painted yellow. This for me has two reasons:

1) My start in modelling was Luftwaffe aircraft and they didn't have yellow tips.
2) I hate painting propeller tips. I never get them straight.


Straight, even, all the same size etc. Not my strong point either.  :banghead:
Progress slows down. Did some detail work around the exhaust ports and the cockpit, and found some (more) minor dents on the hull.

Oh, yes. I agree with any and all of the above.
Any similarities to the way I do things is entirely natural and part of Modelling Madness Life. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
