This is another incarnation of the lovely Tornado kit, there isn’t much to say about it as there are so many excellent reviews out there in cyber space. What is new is the markings and decals scheme

The Tornado ECR is one of NATO's most effective reconnaissance and electronic warfare weapons. Compared with the fighter-bomber version the Tornado ECR is equipped with additional sensors and systems in order to fulfil its committed roles in the fields of tactical reconnaissance and electronic warfare. Its weapons system uses the AGM 88B "HARM"guided missile to attack ground targets. No1 Squadron of Jabo G32 (Fighter-Bomber Sqn 32) has been an active member of the NATO Tiger Association since 1996. At various Tiger Meets they have impressively demonstrated their flying ability and always presented their aircraft in unique liveries. The Tiger livery 2011 was designed and applied by designer Tom Marschik and Airbrush "Joey" Heidler.

So what do you get....

Instructions

You get the normal Revell style instruction booklet with 16 pages covering the 58 steps of the build but 3 pages / stages are taken up with the various markings, as per normal all paint call outs are in revell colours with some needing to be mixed.

Markings and Decals

The box includes only one set of markings, which is no surprise is it takes up a whole A4 page of decals

The decals are printed in Italy for Revell and are crisp and clear but some of the serials have a lot of carrier film which may benefit for careful trimming

The Plastic

There are 5 crisp grey sprue’s and 1 clear sprue, surprisingly for a kit that has been constantly re-boxed there is no sign of flash

In Conclusion

the original Tornado kit as a fantastic leap forward for Tornado modellers, it builds well and still today is probably the best 1/72 Tornado on the market. This boxing looks to be fantastic but the decals are not for the faint hearted there are 154 individual decals for this scheme and all in 1/72!!!
I cant wait to see one built!
