AVIATION 72 AIRCRAFT SERIES 

The Panavia Tornado is a family of twin-engine, variable-sweep wing combat aircraft, which was jointly developed and manufactured by Italy, the United Kingdom, and West Germany. There are three primary Tornado variants: the Tornado IDS (interdictor/strike) fighter-bomber, the suppression of enemy air defences Tornado ECR (electronic combat/reconnaissance) and the Tornado ADV (air defence variant) interceptor aircraft.

The Tornado was developed and built by Panavia Aircraft GmbH, a tri-national consortium consisting of British Aerospace (previously British Aircraft Corporation), MBB of West Germany, and Aeritalia of Italy. It first flew on 14 August 1974 and was introduced into service in 1979–1980. Due to its multirole nature, it was able to replace several different fleets of aircraft in the adopting air forces. The Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) became the only export operator of the Tornado in addition to the three original partner nations. A tri-nation training and evaluation unit operating from RAF Cottesmore, the Tri-National Tornado Training Establishment, maintained a level of international co-operation beyond the production stage.

  1. Aviation 72 1:72 Tornado F.Mk 3 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2018

    This model is average at best. Fuselage, wings and tail surfaces are assembled well. The parts that bring my rating down are the self assembly pieces, specifically landing gear and gear doors. The gear doors did not fit well enough to stay in place. I eventually had to glue them on. The tire scale on the landing gear struts are WAY out of scale...too small. I also was not pleased with the pilot figures. They lack enough detail to make them look even close to a human pilot. It's better just to take them out. Finally, Aviation 72 included 4 fuselage air to air missiles but no wing drop tanks. The drop tanks would have added much to the model. Instead, the wings have 2 nice round holes where drop tanks could attach. I believe that from now on I will stick to Hobby Master, Century, Corgi, and Gemini-Aces for my model purchases. Attention to detail and scale is what I prefer to spend my money on. No issues with Aiken airplanes. Processing and delivery all done well.
