Hobby Boss 1/48 Tornado Ids

January 4, 2020 · in Aviation · · 8 · 4.1K

First time around here, but my builds take a long time ?
one year to complete this project,?
I didn't appreciate this kit, some construction issues, misinformation instructions, I had to use a lot of filler, bad fitting bad decals etc ?, otherwise I love this plane sorry that it has retired,?
Next project will be Revell 1/48 Eurofighter

Thanks for watching
Until the next time

  1. May have been a pain Ed, but she came out beautiful. Well Done Sir.

  2. Excellent result to all that work.

  3. Wrap around camouflage are my favourite in jets. I believe it’s the first time I stumble upon a HB kit of this plane, so I take your words as fair warning, but despite the troubles faced the end result is very good, better than good it’s impressive! Welcome to iModeler Ed, hoping to see some more of your work around here

  4. This looks great. I think you might find some of the same issues with the 1/48 Revell Eurofighter though. I'm currently building it and so far the fit is iffy to say the least.

  5. Nice job. I haven’t built a Tornado in 30 years. Last one was a German Navy example. I’d like to do a wrap around RAF bird like yours.

    Beautiful work Ed, despite your drawbacks, this model turned out great.

  7. Great looking Tornado! I also like the Tornado very much - have one build and several more in the stash. I just love the lines, and that huge tail.

  8. Thanks everyone for kind comments ?
