I realized the need for some Desert Storm Tornadoes and during a recent long weekend that we had, I figured that there are not a better time than during that weekend to do something about it. The available models aren’t exactly the correct version, but as stated so many times before – I can only work with what there is to work with. As usual I had to improvise here and there, but the end result looks pretty good. The colour-palette that I’ve decided on are sourced from the best colour photos of Tornadoes from that war that I could obtain off the Internet. It gives one a good idea of how a rather freshly painted Tornado would have looked like. But in my modelling career that has started in 1978, I learned that the choice of the correct colour for an aircraft model can lead to hefty discussions. I’ve also re-drawn the respective aircraft’s Nose-arts to the best of my abilities (Not a cut-n-paste business from a photograph).

This is a panel update for the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, originally designed for FS2004 by Stephane Masset and Pierre Marchadier and updated for FSX by Danny Garnier. It features a new VC design and the original 2D panel with all new gauges as well as a grey instead of the original blue window frame in the VC. Smoke burner and afterburner effects are all automatically activated by opening the throttle. Unfortunately, the yellow specific reconnaisance radar gauge is just static as there is no gauge like it for FSX nor could it be incorporated in the VC if there was. But at least, unlike in the Alphasim model, thanks to the original designers, it is displayed here. Nothing can be done about the "too low, flaps" announcement when starting the plane. All credits go to the designers mentioned above. New VC design, slight interior enhancement, effect configuration and new gauge configuration by Michael Pook.

This texture set originated as a result of my GAF Tornado texture set. I remembered that I have quite a number of photos of Starfighters that appears in the same colour-scheme as the Tornadoes and have therefore decided to do a texture set depicting one in the GAF's (Luftwaffe) RAL 6003, 7021, 9005, 7012 and FS 34079 colour scheme. Once again much improvisation hat to take place but I think I’ve captured the topic quite well. It may not be perfect in many respects, but it still look good, both on the ground and in the air.

I searched far and wide for an appropriate freeware texture set that depicts a Tornado GR.4 in the GAF's (Luftwaffe) RAL 6003, 7021, 9005, 7012 and FS 34079 colour scheme but could not find even a single one. For me this is the best ever scheme that was used on GAF fighters. The NATO-grey scheme is much too clinical for me and looks rather dull to say the least. I've found a Starboard-side colour-plate on the Internet that really appealed to me and has used it as a starting point for my texture set. Once again much improvisation had to take place as neither picture-, drawing- nor photographic evidence is available of how exactly this camouflage pattern looked like on the Port side and the upper and lower surfaces. None-the-less I think it came out pretty well. As far as the original sound file goes that comes with the original offering: It doesn't do justice to this aircraft and I've therefore decided to utilize the sound file from the 'Mirage 2000N base FSX.zip' package on my side and I suggest that you do the same. I haven't included the mentioned sound file with this offering, because I had a bad experience on a previous occasion where I was reprimanded for using something without authorization. It may not be perfect in many respects, but it still look good, both on the ground and in the air. Please refer to all ‘Read Me’ files for appropriate credits given.
