1/48 Italeri Tornado IDS Black Panthers

Gallery Article by Phil De Keyser on Aug 8 2012



This is my Tornado IDS, itís a re-release from Italeri on scale 1/48, itís a nicely detailed kit with a beautiful set of decals from the 2007 Black Panthers special colour scheme of the Aeronautical Militaire Italiana 50 Stormo, 155 Gruppo based at Piacenza, Italy.

The kit has nicely engraved panellines and for an out of the box build, the standard is quite good, the cockpit interior is really basic but there are many after market products for a nice update.

I used the Alclad colours for this bird, I used also the Alclad clear and semi clear cote, the decals are really a beauty and with a set and sol solution they fit perfectly on the Tornado

Have Fun, greetz Phil
