New Italeri Tornado GR.4 1/32nd scale - first impression - pics


Recommended Posts

I want one....even though I am cutting back on LARGE 1/32 Jets...I want one. I want to do an aircraft from #IX Squadron during Operation Shader April 2018. Video of the Aircraft taking off doesn't seem to show much for markings and all I could tell was a roundel on the fuselage. Each Gr.4 seems to have a pair of Storm Shadows on the belly pylons. Anyone with more information on the individual aircraft please post or PM me.

If anyone is interested , Hannan's are now reporting the kit is now in stock with the , I had one on back order, so with 10% discount my one cost me £125, with free P&P , a little expensive but on a par with 1/32 Trumpeter jets , but I'm pretty sure I have more than that invested in Resin to enhance the Revell kit .. you pays your money guys!

And in one of the best camouflage schemes:

 

I can never decide whether to do a Marine one in that old classic white undersides or the later blue lizard scheme.

Even in 1/48 they start to demand a lot of space without being all folded and crabbed so, choices....

Multiple listings on EBay currently. Hannants sent me an in stock notice days ago, but shipping will cost an arm and a leg. If the shipping time to the distributors in the states is anything like the 1/32 F-35, we'll be lucky to see it by March 2021...........Just when I am trying to unload some of the 1/32 kits.

Mine should be arriving on Tuesday.  Trying to decide what to do with I already have fo a GR.4

 

For decals, it’s the kit options or the Euro Decals Operation Telic Tonkas decal

 

For stores, it’s the kit GBU-12s, Reskit CPU-123s, KH Storm Shadows (actually SCALP EG from the Mirage 2000 kit), Flightpath TIALD pod, and Wolfpack LITENING pod (for the Hornet, which has the rear cooling scoop on the correct side for the Tornado).  If someone put out Brimstones with the triple rack, the choice would be easier.

Where did you order from Dave?

Nice video!  I did notice that what appears as a BRIMSTOME Launch Rack on the belly of the beast has quite a downward angle to it.  Interesting!  :hmmm:


That’s standard for the Tornado.  Brimstone is rail launched, so I assume the downward angle is to clear the pod/store hanging in front of it.

Interesting Operation Shader loadout.  Three Paveway IV, LITENING pod, Skyshadow instead of the TERMA MCP, large Hindenburger tanks, and empty BOL rails.  Judging by the image, the third Paveway has to be on the centerline because there isn’t room for it to be mounted behind the LITENING pod.
