Another biggie. Revell's 1/32 Tornado GR.1 built as it comes except for a couple of resin ejection seats. A thoroughly enjoyable kit to build with decent fit all round and some excellent detail. Finished in the kit decals as ZA462 AJ-M of 617Sqn at RAF Lossiemouth.

Very nice. I built this one myself some years ago. Tornados looked great in these colours and markings.

Whats not to like about a Tonka in camo and 617 marks?

Is the camo freehand through the airbrush?

Thanks folks. No. Geoff, it was a monumental masking effort. Lot of Blutak and Tamiya tape and bits of paper.

Thats my preferred masking method as well.

More recently though i have used paper masks fixed in place with little dots of blutac. They do leave a gap between the mask and surface, but as long as the angle is right, I've not had any significant over spray.
