“The 1/32 scale Revell Tornado I chose to build,” says William, “is the Royal Air Force GR1 Foxy Killer, out of Duxford, England, in standard desert pink camo. It served in Operation Desert Storm in 1991.” William’s model features a resin cockpit, speed brakes, and exhaust nozzles from Aires, and a pitot tube and AOA probes from Master. Decals are from Flightpath.
That is a seriously good looking model I remember those things flying past my ship when I served onboard HMS Illustrious, so noisy they were, I have this kit and I have yet to build it, great to have motivation!!! Fantastic looking model.
Ahhh you gotta love the nose art on those British Tornados, must have gotten the RSAF troops hot and bothered looking at them. I built one yrs back while in Riyadh, a fun kit to work on, only issue was the very weak landing gear. I have one in the stash which I hope to get to some day and this time will pick up the metal LG set. Thumbs up on your Tornado, she looks great!
So nice to hear your wonderful comments! It was such a joy to build and practically put itself together!!
dean27-Get started on that Tornado!!!
Archangel Shooter- That was the only problem with the kit, the lousy LG. I had to reinforce with metal rod
Thank You very much for your wonderful comments! I would suggest this Tornado to anyone as it was such a great ,fun build. As Archangel stated the only problem was with the LG, which I reinforced with metal rod. So go out and get one!
I cant recommend it enough!
