Designed by a company called Syhart I must confess that I've never heard of them beforethey're marked as printed in Italy, is all I know for sure. While some will undoubtedly find these markings to be very desirable, I must confess that they do absolutely nothing for me at all, so I'll be using some Saudi sheets that I already have.
Fuselage Now that I have the kit "in hand", I can say that the surface detailing not that I ever had any doubtsis very delicate and refined. Trademark on major fuselage component above, indicates production time frame, whereas additional parts sprue specific to the ECRindicates Wings Wings are what one might expect, with very nice engraved details, and a geared methodology for allowing wings to be swept, if one chooses to go that route.
No provisions are made for extended slats or flaps. Stabilators Stabilators are also pretty straightforward, being essentially slabs with nice detailing, as per the real deal, and of apparent correct proportions.
Here Revell seems to have accurately captured the proportions and geometry of the fin quite well. Cockpit Not a lot to be said here, save for the notion that if one takes his time, the cockpit has the potential to be built into a very nice representation right out of the box, though I'll undoubtedly replace mine with a Black Box or Aires set, as this portion of an aircraft model receives so much attention at model contests. Engine Components While there are no engines included as such, certainly the intake and discharge ends are included, and look quite decent to me.
No attempt has been made to include any sort of intake ducting, and this will make the "down the throat" view leaving a lot to be desired, so it looks like I'll be slapping some FOD guards on mine.Revell TORNADO ECR Tiger Meet 1/72 scale

Fuel Tanks Basic under wing fuel tanks are provided, and look quite reasonable to me. Landing Gear, Wheels, Wells, and Doors Gear, wheels wells and tires all look quite acceptable to me, though tires may be just a tad too flat, as these sort of high pressure tires really never look this flat, at least not to me.
