1/32 Italeri Tornado GR. 4


Recommended Posts

Hello all, i hope everyone is well.

This is my Italeri Tornado paint up as 'Danger Mouse' (DM...which is my own initial's) which operated in Iraq circa 2003.

I was greateful of some advice from ex Tornado pilots that when i initially added the GBU-12's which were supplied in the kit were actually incorrect ordinance circa 2003. So i had to invest in some Eduard bits to archive the correct load out, so one TILAD pod and two CPU-123s were added to the kit to get in right. This is just a slight oversight from Italeri    as the supplied ordinance was correct for the other decal versions supplied.

The other extras for this kit are the Red Fox studios cockpit set and the Mastercasters wheels, but the kit overall is a bit of a tough one that you have to work through to get right, one thing id advise others to do when build this kit is be aware for the swing-wing mechanism as it isnt the securest and could fail after a while, but when it works...its work surprisingly well.

Hope you all like it as it was a bit of a mission, but a rewarding one at that.

Over to you...the judges :-)
