Limited Edition of 1,500 Models Worldwide
Having the distinction of being one of two final RAF squadron's to operate the Panavia Tornado, No.31 squadron were determined not to allow their long association with this exceptional aircraft go unheralded. During November 2018, Tornado GR.4 ZA548 emerged from the paint shop at RAF Marham wearing a distinctive new disbandment scheme, which marked thirty-five years of Tornado operations for the squadron and featured the silhouette of a Tornado on the tail of the aircraft, with the unit's famous 'Goldstar' emblem placed on top. The black spine of the aircraft also carries the words '31 Squadron Tornado 1984-2019' and marks thirty-five years of Tornado operation, initially from bases in Germany, right up until the final days at RAF Marham. The gold star, which appears on the squadron's crest is a representation of the 'Star of India' and marks No. 31 Squadron's heritage as the first military unit to fly in India. Tornado ZA548 would go on to undertake a series of high profile national flybys and official RAF events during the final months of the Tornados service career, helping give this cold war warrior the fitting send-off it deserved.Detailed cockpit with crew figures
