1/32 Revell Tornado ECR

Gallery Article by Mike Pattison on Nov 18 2014



Sometimes you look at the finished product and go  uuuuummmmmm????? and I kinda feel that way about this one. Not bad but coulda done better. Lotsa little errors and inconsistencies that might not show up in the pics; but I know they're there. Not a bad kit, but I do favour Trumpeter for fit, detail and general workability. With Revell kits I find you have to put in a larger effort to get acceptable results......lotsa filler; lotsa sandpaper, scratched canopies, endless injection marks etc etc.....but anyways, enough whining

It's preshaded and finished in Tamiya acrylics and before being weathered with pastel dust. Decals took days and days to put on as well as quite a bit of sol. Seat belts by Eduard but apart from that, its OOB. 

Its a striking looking aircraft and the people that see it in my cabinet go 'Oooooooooh; wow'......but I dunno - It was one of those ones I couldn't wait to finish so I could just move on. Feel free to send your opinions and tips.
