Thanks Joe. Will you be starting your two soon?
I'll start the Italian one soon Dave once I near completion of my first helicopter GB kit. I'm considering building both the ECR and GR1 together to save on some paint mixing.

Great work Dave. I really like your cockpit and you are right - the detail is good straight out of the box.
I think I'm going to join in the Tornado GB after I've finished my Eagle Transporter (probably mid Feb). Like you I've got the 1/32 big bird and the new tool 1/48 Revell Tonkas - IDS and Gr4 (I'll build the IDS as a Gr1 with some parts copied in resin from the Gr4). I've heard that you need to be careful when handling the wings as the attachments for the flaps are easily broken.
Looking forward to seeing your fighter version. Also, I'm hoping you'll be around when I finally get round to mine for accuracy advice etc.
Will you be doing the 1/32 straight after this?
Cheers

Your right. The Flap attachments ARE easily broken!. I managed to break one of mine off. And yes,I intend doing the 1/32 after this. I've got a resin cockpit and Skyshadow pod for it . Mind you, my Zoukie Mura 1/48 F4S is also calling to me!.

Cool, well I may just launch straight into the big Tonka if you're building yours next. I've got quite a bit of after market stuff to fit into the build including the full Flightpath set. I think I have the Aires pit, wheel bays and exhaust nozzles too (it's been that long that I looked inside the box that i can't quite remember!)

I do think your experience around these jets will be invaluable.
Cheers

Looks like you still have plenty of work ahead of you Dave, but it's coming along nicely.

Im ashamed to say i dont look in the planes section much (mainly as i cant seem to build a decent plane to save my life) im ashamed as i realise i miss amazing builds like this. I must try and push my envy aside and look in here more often. Keep up the amazing work dave.
