Fantasy Printshop | Euro Decals ED-32120 Panavia Tornado GR.4/4A Part 2
Reviewed by Kevin Futter
Through its Euro Decals range, Fantasy Printshop has released a set of decals for the Panavia Tornado GR.4/4A in 1/32 scale. The single A4-size sheet contains markings for the following three aircraft:
- Panavia Tornado GR.4, ZA401, 13 Squadron, RAF Marham, 2005
- Panavia Tornado GR.4, ZA543, 15 Squadron, RAF Lossiemouth, 2005
- Panavia Tornado GR.4, ZG756, 14 Squadron, RAF Lossiemouth, 2005
Each of these schemes sports some eye-catching artwork on the tail, celebrating the 90th anniversary of some unnamed occasion.
A small errata sheet containing a single corrected emblem is also supplied:
The two on the main decal sheet are identical, whereas they should be handed. (Note that the image of the full sheet above is taken from the Fantasy Printshop website, and shows the correct design, whereas on our physical review sample 13R is identical to 13L.)
The decals themselves are terrific, with perfect register, good colour density, and nearly-flawless printing. On my sample, there's just a tiny dot of unfilled colour on one of the tail stripes for ZA543.
This package provides a terrific set of options for adding colour to some otherwise dull grey Tornadoes, and the decals themselves are of excellent quality. If you want to liven up your Tornado build with some striking tail art, this set's for you!
Thanks to Fantasy Printshop for the review sample.
