1/48 Italeri Tornado ADV

--------------------

 

I had built this kit many years back and stripped off it's paint and rebuilt it to the condition in those photos. The kit is not as easy to build as Hasegawa but it does replicate a Tornado accurately.

I had built it out of the box except for the resin ejection seats as the kit's seats are lacking in details, the resin wheels are from Airwaves (I think so...). 

The markings are from Airfix's Tornado ADV.Paints are from Tamiya XF-19 for Barley Grey and Gunze H338 for Light Aircraft Grey. I am satisfied with the out-come of the rebuilding work. I had another new Tornado ADV sitting on the shelf waiting for me.
