Panavia Tornado GR. Mk.1 RAF -Revell 1/32

Recommended Posts

I guess I'm slightly mad, starting this one at this point, but I will give it my best shot.

This kit is newer and a lot nicer than the Eurofigher. Should have picked it from the start, but didn't know the Eurofigher should be that bad.

Thank you Stefan and Brian! :)

 

I started painting the cockpit parts in black.

Then I painted dk gull grey, then added some white and made another pass to break up the colour a bit.

After that I started painting details.

The seats needs some more colours and more details will be added as well as instrument decals.

Since I don't intend to have it in flight or lit up, then all panels should be shut and all black.

At least as far as I could tell from the pics I've seen.

Cockpit done with test fitted seats.

Then I fit it into the fuselage halves.

For some reason I ended up with a small gap between the front panel and the coaming. Have to carefully sort that with plastic or putty.

 

According to the instructions, only the Desert storm version should have those "Danger do not pull handle" decals, and the decals sit in that part of the sheet, but Looking at pics I think it shows on everyone. It seems most logical to have them anyway.

 

I've also started working on the wings and the movable pylons.

As it is now the pylons can sit in any direction, but on the 1/48 kit there's a mechanism to coordinate them.

I don't have the 1/48 kit, so I can't see how it's done, but I'm considering sorting it somehow.

Otherwise I might as well glue the wings and pylons in a fixed position.

I've progressed a bit further, but haven't had time to upload any pics.

Will do that asap, and then this thread can be moved to the wip area.
