Do not fit part #204 but indeed close
the left gun nozzle opening with part #207. Fill and sand smooth.
The major airframe parts have been assembled. Next, re-scribe some panellines. Fill small holes with putty or Mr.Surfacer liquid putty and sand the whole model and clean up. It is a good idea to spray an overall coat of light grey paint primer to check for any flaws.
In the red encircled area on the spine some extra putty is needed to get a straight look. But nothing popped up that can not be solved.

OK, did some extra filling in some areas. Here are the results.
The spine is OK now and no additional filling is needed.
As noted before: the rear Skyflash
missiles on a real Tornado are not recessed. They are attached straight
on the rear fuselage.

Next step is detailling, starting with the cockpit interior.
But let us look at possible paint
Decals & markings
While building my own 1/32 model Tornado ADV F3, I discovered that the Tornado ADV has particular walkways and squadron markings which would be difficult to make yourself or to find elsewhere.
So I have created four small decal sheets. This would help subtantially to make a nice 1/32 scale Tornado model. The decal test print uses a mixed technique as to keep costs as low as possible. The decals are home made and therefor will not meet the highest quality standards. However, when working with care, they can be used quite well.
Stenciling and airframe markings from the Revell kit decals can be used.
Tornado walkways on top of fuselage and wing are complex with dotted lines. These are provided in white decal lines.
Four decal sheets are in this set (Decals size is approx 20 x 22 cm / 8 x 9 inch):
1. White stenciling and walkway striping on clear decal sheet
2. Black lettering and serials on clear decal sheet. Serials and numbers can be made by combining each letter/number that you need.
3. Squadron markings and details on white decal sheet. Pick the ones needed
4. Additional Squadron markings and details on white decal sheet.
Decals come with full instructions and decals need cutting out and they have one underlying carrier film. Particularly those decals printed on white decal sheet need a carefull cut out with sharp scissors.
7 Schemes provided in the Tornado ADV 1/32 decals set
