No, the German Tornadoes go on until 2025 when they will be replaced by more Typhoons and , recently announced, new F18s.

The RAF has retired the Tornado, F35 and Typhoon now rule the roost!
Hi, David how is that a No? German article said they are replacing the Tornado, it’s like any replacement they just fade them out over a few years while they build the replacement fleet. So they’re getting rid of it are they not?

Yes but:
Germany just retired theirs
Is wrong, they are flying on for another 5 yers, probably longer than that with the inevitable delays...

No decision is taken yet- it is just a proposal to buy F18 SuperHornet and Growlers....but it looks like that is the route we need to take if we want a finger on the trigger of your nuclear arsenal......

Tornado is a fantastic and timeless plane- look jere and see how one is building one in perfection

Panavia Tornado 1:9

stay safe and best regards from Germany

Most of Skymasters R&D on swing wing was done on the F14 I’m sure if they scaled it down and recycled parts if could fit in a Tornado body and save time and money on designs?

Mike been getting a lot of stuff from Mibo on Tornado they did, it is now on my bucket LOL always loved the jet due to the swing wing, look of the gear and just how thick is looks. I talked to lowell back in the day and almost bought an FEJ
So top three models left for me are:
A-6, kinda like the Desert Storm schem
Tornado, never been a fan of tiger schemes but like this one
and
probably an A-10 I want to do one from the early days, all OD green with lots of bombs and something about the shark or tiger mouth

I feel your frustration of there’s a lot of talk of A-6 being made but no one has done one yet... same with Tornado. Hopefully Someone will make them although I think the only manufacturers are Mibo and Skymaster. I love all your color scheme choices! There’s a British Tornado in a Desert color with a shark mouth which is pretty sick but there’s lots of choices with British, Italian and German schemes! I almost bought I FEJ too but I heard there were a few issues and held off

So I do have a question, I know rcu is a small following but what are your guys thoughts on the Large A-6 Intruder, A37 Dragon fly, Tornado and a twin seat Euro fighter? The first three have been mentioned but not the third? I almost bought one a few years ago but it wasnt in the size range I was looking for and had other projects.

It’s very quiet on here now. I’ve never thought of a model version of the A37 but looking at it would make a great model. Looks like it would be nice flying jet with the long straight wings
