Historical Note:


Preorder Expected Arrival - NOV 2024

Designed in collaboration with Britain, West Germany and Italy, the Tornado was first flown on August 14th, 1974 and is thought by many to be the most important military aircraft in Western European history. Nicknamed "The Flying Fin" because of its large tail fin, the Tornado has a variable wing sweep design and is capable of taking off and landing on short airstrips. It is equipped with terrain-following radar, which allows for hands-off, low-level flight in any weather. There are three primary versions: an electronic combat/reconnaissance version, an interceptor and a highly versatile strike fighter-bomber capable of carrying almost all of NATO's air-launched weapons.

The Hobby Master "1:72 Air Power Series" range presents detailed, ready-made diecast models of military aircraft.

Hobby Master "1:72 Air Power Series" diecast airplanes feature:

  • Diecast metal construction with some plastic components.
  • Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details.

The Plane Built to Break Russia (11:06)
The Panavia Tornado was the first Royal Air Force aircraft to be fully designed for the digital age. Equipped with highly complex automated systems, the type had a remarkable advantage in electronic warfare and could easily jam or deceive enemy defenses. However, the strike attack aircraft was initially conceived as far back as the 1970s, and it could carry either conventional or nuclear weapons and operate far and wide throughout Europe at an extremely low level. With such state-of-the-art features, the Tornado quickly became one of the most advanced ground attack aircraft of its time and provided the Royal Air Force with a cutting-edge front-liner that was still creating havoc at the turn of the century… --- Join Dark Skies as we explore the world of aviation with cinematic short documentaries featuring the biggest and fastest airplanes ever built, top-secret military projects, and classified missions with hidden untold true stories.
