Tornado IDS
« on: October 17, 2017, 06:55:06 PM »
Finally I got me a work bench where I moved so I can start to build models. As a first one I picked out Hobby Boss Tornado IDS in 1/48 scale with a lot of " goodies " some are here right now, a few ones to follow. It will be RSAF ( Royal Saudi Air Force ), can't resist to the colors on it.....
And here is what it would be build of

The fun and games had began  :) I started with the cockpit and seats, the seats will be the combination of Aires, Eduard, original box parts and scratch build,and the cockpit will be original box parts, Eduard and scratch.... First I glued some main parts together, putty and sanding will follow, some original parts like wires had been removed and I will replace them with real wire, the pedals are positioned as the tail will be on the end. Here are some first photos of the start

the cockpit detailing has been continued, first I detailed the inner fuselage parts, since Eduard provides only two parts for this area by looking the photos I had found on the net I made the rest from styreene and PE left-overs, this area is finished, rest of the cockpit to follow.....

Thank you friends !

About 90% of detailing is done, a few more wires to come but only after painting

thank you friends !

while I'm waiting for the last detail in the cockpit I moved on to the wings and wheel bay. on the wings I installed the Eduard's PE parts for the flaps, fits in perfectly and the result is good as well. As a next step I started to work on main wheel bays,first Eduard's PE parts, then some scratch building of a bunch of " stuff " before the wiring

Thanks

and now all the " gadgets " are done in main wheel bays, wires to follow... The air brakes are installed as well, a surprise for me was that Quickboost and Edurad gives two very different variations of the same thing.... So, after checking the photos I founded out they both was right, so I took the easier way, Quickboost.....

And the photo boot is working just fine  :)
