    I hope you all don`t mind as the subject model is about 70 odd years late for WW2.

    However as the subject matter is linked to that conflict, I thought you all might like to see my take on how the RAF should of presented their special scheme Tornado. Admin/Mods, obviously if I`ve broken any rules, please feel free to remove the post.

    It`s a 1/48 Revell kit, base is from the old 1/72 airfix dambusters dio kit. Sorry for the piccie quality, it`s just a point and shoot.

    Good stuff! Would also look good in overall WW2 camouflage, without the current 'low vis' grey.

    Very nice indeed! Echo Matt's post for more :)

    Which make of Tornado is that by the way? 1:72 in any case judging by the Airfix dam base.
