- First Name
I've decided to build this one first. With the Revell 1/32 GR1 to follow if I have time. It's the new Revell 1/48 ADV and looks to be a very nice kit. From 1988 to 1995 I was employed by British Aerospace as a crew chief on Royal Saudi Air Force Tornado's at Dhahran on the Gulf coast. So I thought I would build one of the aircraft I used to work on. During the first Gulf War they carried a full missile load and the 2,250L external tanks. So that's how I will build mine. I will also have the flaps and slats out,as that's how we used to leave them parked up. And I won't do much weathering as we kept them very clean. Ive got an after market decal sheet and a brass pitot tube for it. The squadron badge on the decal sheet is a bit crap. So i may try to find a better sheet.
