    Hi again,

    I thought I would show you a couple of pictures of the Halinski Tornado. The wings are fixed as I didn't have the skills to go all the way with this. I searched all over the Internet for pictures of a completed Halinski Tornado, and there aren't any! However, just to let you know, this was an awesome kit. As you know, canopies for some of these kits are rare as hen's teeth, so I ended up heat forming my own over a candle and wooden form. My digital camera is 6 years old, so I apologize for the graininess - I am not really trying to hide problems!

    Very nice build! Thanks a ton for sharing it with us. There are a couple of tutorials in the download section for forming your own canopies. Sounds like you already have a handle on it so those techniques should come to you pretty easily :)

    Please, no exchanging of scans. If you would like a commercial kit, please purchase it.
    Thanks

    That's a very nice looking model. I'm always impressed by jet models. There very complicated shapes make for quite a challenge over the standard tapering tube shape of most WWII fuselages. That being said, I've started building several jets, but I have yet to finish one. So, good job finishing yours. It's looks great.
