I built this years ago. The 'internet experts' seemed to agree that this is possibly the best 1:72 Tornado kit around.

I've looked at this his kit many times to but never quite got round to getting one. In your opinion is it the best in this scale Colin?

Well I don't know about the best, as I've nothing to compare it to, but it does turn out nice with great surface detail.

There's a slight issue with the underside of the air intakes, but nothing serious.

I recently acquired the 1/72 Luftwaffe 'black Panther' ECR kit of this mould. It's supposed to be the most accurate in 72 scale. It will be interesting to compare it to the Italeri and Hasegawa kits I'm building for this GB.

This looks a great kit Richard, on the strength of Colin's Granby Tonka, and I'm looking forward to your progress.
Cheers
