Revell Tornado IDS 1/48


That's a nice paint scheme on the RSAF Tornado. Looks great, Arif! 👍
Weathering's nice, too.

Arif, looks fantastic to me 👏 I have a few of these revell tornado kits myself. I'll be chuffed to bits if any of mine turn out anything nearly as good as your build here 🙂👍

What a great colorful scheme...absolute gorgeous! Did you occur lots of flaws during build in this Revell kit?

Thanks Jos, put it this way every single part has fit issues, the parts require cleanup of micro flash and some of the build steps could be improved to be honest.I'm almost finished now and glad to see the back of it.

Very nice job, Arif! 👍
The wings and the soot (?) from the thrust reverser visible on the tail looks great.

Very nice build! You got to love these desert schemes! A RSAF desert Tornado is on my wish list. Arif, to your knowledge: are these desert camo RSAF Tornados up to GR4 standard or more compareable to the German IDS variant? Some sources claim they are GR4 equivalent but most photo's I have seen contradict that (e.g. only 1 chin pod vs 2 for GR4). I tend to believe the photo's are correct. I got the same GR4 kit as you have planned and I believe it can be backdated to an IDS standard when needed. Thanks in advance for any info.

Thanks Tyu much appreciated.The GR4 kit has everything to build a GR1 which I think is most comparable to the IDS, I agree the reference photos I have seen make these camo Aircraft a GR1/IDS, they all seem to have guns so defo not GR4
