Mark, loving what you are doing with this kit. May I ask how you cut the panels away and are you scratch building new panel doors? Which kit is this, please?

 

Cheers

Thanks for the quick reply Mark, I like the dymotape idea, very good, not sure I am brave enough to try it though :icon_eek:

Looking forward to the rest of the build, looks fantastic so far :-)

Nice IP Mark.

Last operational RAF Tornados arrived back in the UK from Cyprus today. Will be gone by the end of March. 

Scary, I clearly remember them coming into service and built the Revell (?) 1/72 kit of the Panavia prototype as a kid.

Some very nice detail works!

 

Now the question is:  Has the Tornado seen any air-to-air combat?  Ever?
