    Watch everybody this one might be mess as I will be using my new airbrush so I have been having ago at the cockpit and seats.
    The seats and cockpit are airbrushed with tamiya at a ratio of 2:1 and it seems to work but I am not a fan of moulded seat belts but I have had ago at them. P1030434.JPG P1030435.JPG P1030437.JPG P1030438.JPG

    It certainly is a nicely detailed front room.

    They look good Peter but it's hard to see properly, we need closeup pictures.

    Exhaust cans - often a tricky subject. I try all sorts of things, sometimes I find an effect I like, other times I don't and just settle for 'whatever'

    I will highlight the bits that don't fit while the detailing is good some of the areas that I have had problems with going from front to back.
    1. The air intakes gave me trouble both top and bottom.
    2. Both leading edge slats need a bit of work to get them to sit.
    3. The flaps are the same.
    4. The airbrakes and the area around the exhaust nozzles would not line up.
    And I am sure it's not my building!!
    And finally where the tail meets the body there is a gap. P1030498.JPG P1030500.JPG P1030497.JPG P1030502.JPG P1030504.JPG P1030503.JPG

    Those gaps are a bit disappointing. Revell's 1:72 Tornado is really nice to build.

    There are some poor fitting there Peter but I'm sure you'll bash them into shape.

    You're doing some great paint work with the new airbrush Peter. The exhausts look very good.
