I just "won" an Airfix MRCA on the Bay of Evil.
$7 (I was the only bidder) plus postage.

This is making me think. I haven’t built a Tornado since an ancient MRCA when I was a kid.

They never did replace the Canberra T17A....  :wacko:

Beat me to it, I bought it y'day and pretty good it is too. Mostly about operations rather than the techie stuff.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

There's a Japanese-edition 1:72 Airfix MRCA on eBay UK at present at TWA QUID as we'd say here.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Airfix-Japanese-issue-MRCA-PANAVIA-TORNADO-1-72-RARE/163486861533

I particularly like:

"Tube of Japanese glue included"

Can I enter my half built Tornado F5 in the Theme Build, or has it gone too far already?

As a “Themed Build” as opposed to a GB with rules, Id say the more the merrier.   Bring it on! 
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

I will never understand those who set a reserve on Evil-Bay.  Why not just set the amount you want to get as a minimum as the starting amount?

My MRCA is on the way.  I have a couple of possible wing doners in mind but no ideas on a colour scheme or user.
