- Customer Reviews
The Panavia Tornado was the result of a combined effort from Aerospace companies from the UK, Germany and Italy, who had broadly similar requirements. The Tornado was designed primarily as a twin engined, 2 seat, low level interdictor and strike aircraft. It uses Variable Geometry wings (swing wings) and has a large and varied payload. It was first operational in 1979 and is still in service today. It has also been developed as an interceptor and electronics warfare aircraft, proving its versatility.
The Strike version has proved to be one of the most capable low level attackers in the world and RAF Tornados saw extensive use in both Gulf Wars, flying missions no other aircraft could perform as well.Eduard's Ltd Ed 1/72 Tornado kit features plastic parts by Revell, with Eduard extras. These include optional resin wheels and ejector seats, plus Eduard's usual colour etch parts, canopy/wheel masks and decals for 8 different RAF Tornado GR.1's from the first Gulf War (Desert Storm)
