It is factory what came with as new as this kit is Im not sure if there is any after market for it yet.
for me this bad boy is going to be OOB the only things iam going to add are pilots to be able to accurately use the flaps slats exhaust an Air brakes cause on parked tornados all that stuff is closed.

and then ill be adding bombs  I may do another base with a plane captian directing the bird who knows
I worry about all that when I get to it.

Joe,

Please keep posting as you go along with the Build. I have the same Kit but

Yes Sir I intend to and they should fit if they give me trouble my Walthers Setting solution will take care of that.

Cockpit looks really nice Joe

These new revell kits have some really nice detail and are amazing value for money, they might need a little more care than some of the more expensive Manufacturers kits
But as you have shown with your other builds, they turn out as lovely models

Thanks yea they probally could have done a little better with the cockpit considering one major
screw up I found already there was no wall behind the pilots seat I don't know what they were thinking but that was inexcusable but it's an easy fix to which ill post the pic of what I had to do.

Ok guys here is the first fix I had to make hopefully it will be the last I don't know what revell was thinking but there was no cockpit wall provided to go behind the pilots seat there was one thank god the  rear seat for such a super nice kit that was inexcusable but it was in easy fix just the same. Also for those that have this kit and are going to be building it Revell's instruction's will tell you to paint the seats black
well I started to do this but then decided  to look up some tornado cockpit pictures the seat frames are not Black they are gray and incase anyone is wondering I chose Flat Gull Gray for my cockpit

I use Testors model master enamels they do make all the modern German Matt colors but I don't like Matt paints they take forever to dry and they are to oily so I just use American Flat colors that match up well enough and Bam 10 min dry and cured but that is just me everyone has their own preferences on what paints they like to use.

Strange, hope they didn't forgot to put some wings in it ;-). Good fix. Those seats are looking pretty detailed.

oh everything else is there lol  except for center ejection strap's which will need to be made if your not going to have pilots in it I tried to make but the pilots legs an stick got in the way so really could not see the handles anyway so  now I can get away with not having those.

well first nose section together leave your rear panel dry cause a lip from the nose slides up under neath it wich you might be able to tell from the pic then glue it all together and the seat don't have to be in it as you can tell need to have them dry fitted along with the pilot to position the arms where I need them but hey looks like I got the headless horseman kind  of upgraded form his horse lo

Ok Guys I really need some advice here on what to do about these intake trunks there not glued yet
I have delt with trunks before but none that were this narrow and curvy as much as I love my green putty it will not be a logical choice to use on these seams not enough room to really to much to sand it smooth

I have some plastic welder fluid but not enough room to scrap off the excess. I know there is lots of fillers out which would be the easiest one to use if my local hobby shop carries it.

Any advice on how you would do it and what fillers to use would be very helpful guys.
and thank you.

That looks like a tricky one to fill and sand Joe ! How much can be seen when the forward part of the intakes are fitted ?
I'm wondering if you will be able to get away with filling and sanding where you can reach.
I use Mr surfacer 500 for most seams unless they are really wide then I use squadron green or Mr white putty.
I built a 1/32 f-15 a while back and used mr surfacer as far as I could reach, sanded them out then I filled the intakes with latex paint and let it run out
But the job was a bit easier than yours as the intakes were wider
Mr surfacer is nice as you can brush it on and after it's dry use a Q-tip soaked in lacquer thinner to smooth it out

I hope this helps

Ok even though looks more complex than it really is it is still going together quite well I have only really minor fit issues here an there but here is an neat idea by Revell if you want to have your Flaps up then as you can see they have added a steering arm set up to where when you fold your wing the pylons will automatically move to what ever position they need to be in relation to whatever degree the wings are in

this is a setup I have never seen done before but be careful the arm is really thin an flimsy when you cut it off the sprue and do not glue it  needs to move everything this is what I was worried about but the wings have tabs to hold it in place to where it can move and stay put after the wings are glued together

and unless you want to don't bother filling all theses ejectior marks I just smoothed the edges of them once the wings go together you wont see them anyway.
