Pair of Tornados
« on: March 03, 2013, 09:13:19 am »
A couple more from the pile. Started these 144th scale Dragon kits awhile back. Were going to be finished as a pair of 3 Wing RCAF birds taxiing out at Baden-Baden. The plan has changed now as I've ripped off the landing gear and they will now be a pair of 'flyers' in a diferent role....

I have a special affinity for 1/144 aircraft, can't wait to see what you decide to do with them!

Looking good!  :thumbsup: Doing them in-flight is icing on the cake!  :wub:

What are yo going to arm these with?
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Fiddled with the lighting on this pic just so you could see the little molded in peg people....I like it !



Cool little Storm Shadows



Probably put all four under the fuselage. Was going to go 2 and 2, with wings on one, but I like the way they look under the fuselage.

They have to end up as Canadian aircraft, given that Canada was an early signatory to the MRCA programme, along with Holland and Belgium.

Canadian and Dutch pair on exercise over the Otterburn ranges?
