Dessert scheme, yum! ;) Lots of scope for weathering with the desert scheme, and that shark mouth is a great look for the Tornado I reckon.

Mine has been parked for a while, what colour are going with for the cockpit? The Revell paint guides are rubbish.

Yes I know what you mean Rick. I'm going for light grey, by the time all the dials and screens are painted, washed and weathered, it will darken it up.

Right I've got the tub painted and put together. The seats aren't glued in yet due to the fact that none of the panel lines are showing on the underside, and I've not even sanded yet, and it needs a dull coat putting on.

I see you have fitted the refuel probe; did you drill out the locating holes? I found holding the fuselage half up to the light useful for finding the right spot to drill. The panel lines are bit light eh?

No I cut the pins off and just glued it in place

I've been slowly building this one in the background. Not the best of kits, and it doesn't help with me gluing the wings in a swept back position ( that's probably no that bad a mistake ) but snapping two of the pilons off is, and then gluing the rear stabilisers upside down. So they had to come off. And so much rescribing to do, and half the local churches lead roof just to stop it being a tail sitter.

The joys of modeling. But still having fun doing it.

Silly mistakes by me Steve but all correctable. Once it's all done I'll forget about the mistakes.

That's looking good Ian, I'm sure you'll see to those repairs easily enough
