This Tornado model is a twin seat version, the cockpit can open and close and there are two pilot/crew figures included. The landing gear is optional, one can attach the landing gear or cover the wheel wells. There is a plastic stand included
This model has some weapons/accessories that can be attached to the wings and fuselage
The wings can swing and the weapons pylons are designed so that they can be adjusted according to the wings position.
The maker of the model, Aviation 72, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very crisp and one can see the little dots that represent the rivets holding down the panels.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The box measures 10" x 10" x 4"
