Default Sci-fi conversion of a Tornado........

Any ideas.....
on "jazzing up" sci-fi wise, a 1/32 scale Tornado kit ?

The jet is pretty boring shape wise- looks like a big fat hog.....
I'd like to do an update to make it look quite 'futuristic' & agressive-

seems most Brit/European designs are pretty limp, since the demise of the Angel Interceptor.............................

Angel Interceptor- even the name sounds cool---------

Another set of fins on the tail, canards set just below the cockpit, blisters set just behind the engine intakes, and maybe another set of engine turbines sat just in front or alongside the tail. Mount some larger missiles and or pods on the wing pylons, replace the wheels with skids.

Hi Steve=
I wish-------- she's not my bird though-

I got this one off the 'net late last night (whilst looking for some inspiration !!)

I have this 1/32 Tornado that I have been wanting to make for years, but just cant bring myself to do it- its too boring !!

I thought if I 'sci-fi" it up a bit, It would be a great project.

Put the fin on backwards, and put a jet engine (or 3) on top of it.
Put some canards on it too.
Move the wings to the back.

Big Boris, the Tornado is definitely the jet to use for your project to sci-fi it up.
