Hi Allan. I hate it when that stuff gets frosty.
My two cents: Gunze does not. Putting some Armor All over the frosty spots helps.
Great result nevertheless! The aircraft’s base is less than 20 km from where I live.
Thanks Halvar, have not tried Gunze! do you see them flying from your house ?

It’s really annoying when you get reactions like that when finishing a model, but you’ve still got a sharp looking result.

Sharp looking build !!

Nice work, Allan. In the photos the frosting isn’t that apparent. A good looking build nonetheless.
Thanks Rob, I managed to scrape most of it off.

Great job, the extended refueling probe is a nice touch.
Thanks Robert, yes I like bits hanging off sometimes.

Fantastic Allan. That’s a great choice of markings as well.
Thanks Richard, yes nice tiger meet tail.

Great looking Tornado! I’ve got one finished in Luftwaffe scheme, and bought some decals for a Saudi version. One benefit of swing-wing fighters (from a modeler’s standpoint) is that it’s a good excuse to build more than one, so you can see them in different wing-sweep configurations! At least, that’s what I tell the little woman…

Thanks Greg, the only excuse I need is it’s one of my themes.

Allan, my friend @kalamazoo, this article popped up as I was browsing here and I couldn’ resist having a look.
Your Tornado looks wonderful.
What a nice scheme! What an eyecatcher!
I saw you made good use of tac for the camo lines!
Congratulations on your build!
