GR1 converted to a GR4
The 'Operation Telic' (current Gulf build up) Tornado GR4 was my first foray into the 'old mans' scale' 1:72 for nigh on 12 years and it is the Revell 1:72 GR1 updated to a GR4.
I scratchbuilt the FLIR pod under the fuselage with plasticard and applied the ARTF Grey using the old Barley Grey (which the ARTF more or less is) overall with the radome being painted Dark Sea Grey. The decals have come from the decal bank.
This kit is really well detailed and engineered and I only wish it could be scaled up to 1:48th!!
