I got involved in this very exciting Tornado Farewell project the moment I got a phone call from a No. IX Bomber Squadron pilot in RAF Marham.
The iconic RAF Panavia Tornado GR4 fighter jet has been decommissioned since March 2019.
This memento project consists in melting down scrap steel from the Tornado Jets and re-casting it to be transformed into a series of commemorative Tornado sculptures.
You can follow this project here from the beginning, but for those who can’t wait, here are some pictures of the piece.
The first finished 1:75 Tornado scale replica of the RAF Panavia Tornado GR4 fighter jet.
The Limited Edition 1000 jets are cast in steel from 27mm Mauser Cannons taken out of decommissioned RAF Marham Tornados.
The jet is supported by an original titanium RB199 compressor blade from the Tornado’s Rolls Royce engines and attached to the iroko plinth.
Just follow the cube!
