The International Plastic Modellers Society (IPMS) Panavia Tornado Special Interest Group (SIG). A place to find scale model kit reviews, reference information, photos, up-to-date Tornado news and Tornado modelling news and a place to meet and chat with fellow Tonka fans. A group for scale model makers of all abilities with an interest in the Panavia Tornado.
Membership of the SIG is completely free and is open to IPMS members and non-members alike (although we would encourage you to join the IPMS). Joining instructions can be found here. We attend a number of shows across the country, and occasionally overseas. Members are encouraged to come along and bring a model to add to the display.
Gulf War Anniversary
2016 marks the 25th anniversary of the first Gulf War. The Tornado SIG put on a special display at the Bolton Model show almost to the hour that air attacks were launched by RAF Tornado GR1s. The SIG continue to mark the anniversary that has come to define the Tornado with a special display at shows this year culminating at this years IPMS SMW. Along side the display, a collection of materials will be added to a dedicated section of the site (click here). The first of which is a collection of previously unpublished photographs of Tornado F3s.
