Adie Roberts continues his inspirations to help inspire modellers of all abilities to work out of their comfort zone building dioramas or just trying new builds.

Fantastic work on his Italian Airforce Tornado IDS with Italeri Nato Pilots and Ground crew with some serious scratch building for the radar, electronics from modeller Emanuele Lemma 

Emanuele Lemma's Own words: The realization of this model produced by Hasegawa in 1/72 scale, is particularly complex, also due to the small scale; required good documentation, as well as a careful study to be able to obtain the innumerable details present in the various compartments of the avionics systems, etc. I also created: radar and its radome broken down into three parts, ammunition tank, left engine compartment with its door and thrust reversers open. As for the wings, I preferred to make the configuration with triple slit open slats and flaps, which were certainly the most challenging part of the model. Particular effort also required the laying of the two decals depicting the mouth of the shark which caused the particular opening of the radome, I had to gently break it down into several parts with the nightmare of being able to irreparably ruin them. 

After a lot of work, fraught with countless obstacles, the satisfaction of the model created managed to satisfy all my sacrifices.
