    Hello all,

    i built this kit since Nov 2008. A nice kit which all parts fit well. This interceptor was decommissioned from Royal Air Force since 2011 after entered service since 1989 during the cold war era. It was replaced by Eurofighter Typhoon.

    The Tornado was one of those aircraft that I didn't think I had much interest in. Then I saw your beautiful model. Now, I WANT ONE too! Thanks for showing it!

    I know how you feel. The Tornado was one of those aircraft that never got it's day in the limelight. If you read it's operational history, it really is a fantastic plane. A very successful aircraft that is combat proven, especially in low level attacks. This model is superb. I really like it in all white, it seems more detailed somehow. :)
