After fixing the issue with one Revell 1/72 Tornado, why not get the other one built? As well as the Hasegawa F-104, and the Revell Dornier 28, and the Zvezda 1/72 PaK40? It looks like 2021 is going to start a very productive year ( hopefully).
I had actually made a start on the other Tornado as I had built the forward fuselage at the same time as the first Tornado as I was planning on building them both together, however the fit issues put me off both of them. This also explains why there are two different coloured parts as I was mixing and matching, the Revell wings were already built when I decided to use the resin Airwaves ones. If I can’t get the warp out of the port resin wing I may fit the kit ones anyway.
Edit; I made a decision on the resin wings last night….
Looking at them and as well as the warp in the port wing, the strips of plastic sheet I glued into them to replace the rather crude inserts have also warped. I *could* replace them I suppose but I just want to get these two finished so I glued the kit wings together and will fit them after clean up.
Shame really as the Tornado looks great with everything down and out but maybe another time. One thing I did prove is that you CAN get the Airwaves wings to fit a Revell Tornado even though they were designed for the Hasegawa kit over 20 years or so ago.
One thought on “On the bench at the moment”
Way to overcome some difficult issues and finish a few projects!
