Default HM Tornado IDS Luftwaffle JaBoG 31, HA6703

This one just landed in my collection from the FlyingMule:

Hobby Master
Panavia Tornado IDS
Luftwaffe JaBoG 31 Boelcke, 43+25, Norvenich AB, Germany, 2000s
1/72 Scale, Item: HA6703

This is my first Tornado model from HM, very beautifully executed. I believe this is the first one with the upgraded canopy. I had to get this release because it goes will with my German Eurofighter and MiG-29. The JaBoG 31 was the first German Air Force wing to join NATO. For the most part I think HM did a better job with the Tornado than Corgi, the details are much more refined. One thing I would like to see improved on is the weapon pylon connection, I do feel like it's a bit loose especially carrying those heavy fuel tanks. Other than that I'm very happy with this purchase.

Here's some pictures:

Here's a group shot of the modern German Air Force.

I have the European Green version of the Luftwaffe Tonka as I've always loved this camo version, however this grey one looks exceptional!!

Doesn't look all that bad I must say. Don't know what HMs old canopy looked like, but this is quite nice.

The Boelke badge (Brotzeitmesser) on tail appears to be a bit on the large side. I didn't check with actual pictures, but had it smaller in mind.
