New Revell Tornado and Spitfire Models
Revell are bringing a couple of cracking new aircraft kits onto the market in June 2014. First up is the Supermarine Spitfire Mk II in 1/32 scale from the plastic aircraft models range which accurately recreates the real life British fighter aircraft. This Revell aircraft model requires paint and glue to complete. This is just one of many great kits from the Revell plastic models range.
Along with the Me 109, the Spitfire the most well known aircraft of World War II. More than 22,500 units have been built in countless variants until long after the end of World War II. With the start of the 2nd World War, the RAF already introduced the Spitfire Mk I into its Fighter Squadrons. The first Spitfire Mk II left the Supermarine factory at Castle Bromwich in August 1940. She now came with the standard 3-blade propeller and had additional armour fitted to protect the pilot.
Next up is the Panavia Tornado IDS in 1/48 scale. The Revell Panavia Tornado IDS in 1/48 scale accurately recreates the real life European multi-role combat aircraft. The Tornado is the largest European military aircraft program.
The Tornado is in use with four Air Forces. The employment spectrum of this fighter-bomber includes Offensive Air Support for ground forces, containment of the battlefield and the fight against enemy air forces on the ground and in the air. It also features an electronic Flight Control System and an Automatic Terrain Following System. Due to its "Swing-Wing" technology, the Tornado is equally able to fly low-level at both high speed (swept-wing) and low speed (un-swept). With combat performance upgrades and modifications, the Tornado will remain combat ready for another 10 years.
For these models we recommend using paints from the following ranges.
