Working for ThemRAF Tornado Joystick

Chris is an RAF pilot that flew the Tornado GR4, which were all decommissioned in 2019.

He asked me to make a base for a hand controller taken from one of the jets to sit along to his Tornado GR4 model.

The joystick had to preserve its springy movements which meant that it had to keep the original mechanism below the actual controller, thus giving plenty of space for three Tornado jets inlaid in maple on three sides and a personal engraved plaque on the fourth.

The 67˚angle of the base is the same angle of the real life jet’s folded wings, which makes the iconic shape of the Tornado GR1/4.

The wood used is iroko, which was donated by the Sandringham estate for the Tornado GR4 Memento Project.
