This is an ongoing project that will be divided in different parts as our work progresses along the year.
Welcome to part 2. First Prototypes.
The Panavia Tornado GR4 first few prototypes were cast and presented on trial plinths.
The pretty pink missiles, bombs and tanks, as well as the blue jets, are all made in wax.
Each jet and all their parts are carefully detailed by a very patient hand and then re-cast with the melted Tornado steel.
Look at the beginning of this project here!
