Hi all this is my 1/48 Tornado ECR of the German Air Force Jabo 32 at the 1996 tiger meet at Lechfeld.  I made this back in 2010.  I must admit there was a fair bit of filling and sanding and panel scribbing on this bird.  It was also a tricky kit to paint seeing that its a swing wing, but I enjoyed the overall challenge.

I used various paints (Tamiya,Vallejo, Humbrol) to get the finished results and finished it off with a panel line wash using artist oils. The real tricky part of this kit was the decals, it took me 5 days to get them all on and a lot of patience as well :) I made the canopy support myself from the parts box.

Well I hope you enjoyed my Tornado pictures and thank you for looking.
