Given the quality of the Revell tornado kits, im stoked they are releasing an F.3. I think they are awesome looking planes, no idea how good they were though.

Anyone have any other news about these?

I haven't seen much else about the F.3 yet, but I really wouldn't mind this kit. I am rather fond of the F.3 Tornados

I bought the GR4 as soon as it came-out, which I'll be building as an early GR1 or GR1A... The F3 was never a particular favourite of mine, but was always a noisy/spectacular airshow performer in the 1980's and wore some pretty colourful squadron markings, so I will almost certainly buy/build one simply for the nostalgia thing.

First review I've seen, and maybe a little biased? ;)

I've got the new tool Gr.4 as well and it certainly looks very nice on the sprues (albeit missing pretty much any ordnance though). From what I have read and seen built it seems to be the new best in scale so no doubt the f3 will be good too.

While I'm on a kit buying moratorium at the moment, I will probably break it for this, but may wait a little for some after market decals to come out since I dont want to build a show bird. Always loved the look and capability of the Tonka, and when I first saw the ADV I was smitten. ;)

I am rather excited to see this and I may get it myself. I am a huge fan of the ADV.
Hannants seem to have a few decals for the ADV Grover if you are on the hunt for any?

Yeah I just dropped a bucket of cash on another B-25 with all the trimmings so, I'm going to try to refrain from kits. This doesn't include tools, paints and other related toys lol
I just got yet another paint stirrer and this is the best of the lot, it's laboratory style mixer that basically spins two magnets on a shaft, I then bought some 5mm Neodymium ball bearing magnets that I drop in to the paint pots. It works really well and the best thing is it's nearly silent and doesn't jig around all over the place.
