1:72 Scale.  Length: 9".  Wingspan ( 25 degree sweep): 7.5"



Limited production of approximately 1,000 models worldwide


RAF No 9 Squadron was formed in December 1914 to spot for artillery and reconnaissance and later became a bomber unit. No. 9 Squadron has flown ten different types of bombers including the Lancaster they used to help sink the ‘Tirpitz’. In 1982 the squadron moved to Honington and became the RAFs first operational Tornado squadron. Panavia Tornado GR1 BS035/105 ZA592 was first flown on January 11, 1982 and delivered to the RAF on February 19, 1982. The aircraft was later upgraded to a GR4 and scrapped on February 24, 2017.

The Panavia Tornado was a joint project between the UK, West Germany and Italy to produce a two-seat, dual-engine aircraft with variable-sweep wings. The Tornado took its maiden flight on August 14, 1974 with the first aircraft delivered to the German Air Force on July 27, 1979. The variants of the Tornado are: IDS (interdictor/strike), ECR (electronic combat / reconnaissance) and ADV (air defense variant) interceptor. By the end of production in 1998 there had been 992 aircraft of all versions built of which 745 were IDS variants.

Hobby Master is a manufacturer of high quality, pre-built, diecast models. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using specifications of the original aircraft or vehicle. They are made with precision-tooled die-cast metal and some plastic components.
