GROUP BUILDS > Panavia Tornado Retirement Build

Belgian Tornado

(1/2) > >>

TallEng:
I thought I'd join in with a Tornado build as well :thumbsup:
Hopefully as this is a theme build I'll get this one finished?
Anyway, my first thoughts were for a Canadian Tornado as per Weavers Canadian topic,
See here http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,46135.0.html
but having checked my decal stash found that I had very little in the way of Canadian decals
that would fit a Tornado, So perusing my Tornado Development story (Francis Mason) I hit upon
the idea of using one of the original members of the MRCA development group, namely Belgium
Who pulled out early on for various reasons.
The build so far:

It is of course one of the many boxing's of the Revell Tornado IDS, which so far is going together quite well,
as you can see three out of four pylons can swivel at the moment, (one did break during assembly :banghead:) and the wobbly tailplanes are on;
how much of them will operate as intended by Revell at the end of the build will be another thing entirely ;D

Keith

TallEng:
Paint has been applied :thumbsup:

As I'm following Modeldecal instructions, which I believe are (were?) widely regarded as some of the best in the business :angel:
It should be a very accurate rendition of the colour scheme as applied to the first Belgian Tornado's :thumbsup:
You can also see, its now down to one operating pylon and its lost a taileron. Not to worry
nothing that a bit of glue can't fix ;D
Apart from the bits (not surprisingly) knocked off by me I'm enjoying the build.
more sometime later.
Regards
Keith
