1/32 Revell ECR Tornado “Tigermeet 2001”

Gallery Article by Thomas Neuss on Aug 28 2003


Revell just released the big scale ECR Tornado 'Tigermeet 2001/2002' and as I got the kit I had to build it ASAP.

It has a very striking Tiger-scheme as seen in real at the Tigermeet 2001/2002 and it builds into a real eyecatcher in the showcase.

The decals are sometimes a little bit tricky, but there is a complete set of Tigerstripes included on a real big decal sheet.

The build process was no problem and after the painting was done with Gunze colours (three-tone grey plus the yellow for the tiger area) the decals needed some time, but with a great result.

After decaling the Tornado it was finished with a layer of future.  

Then I applied a wash of oil paint and some pastel chalk for the exhaust area, as Tornados have very “dirty” vertical stabilisers depending on their thrust reverse.

Everything was fixed with a last layer of Gunze flat and a great Tigermeet jet makes his way into the showcase.

Hope, you like it
