ZTZ48010 1:48 Zotz Decals Black Panther Tornado #48010
Features Black Panther IDS Panavia Tornado is an Italian jet from 50 Stormo, 155 Gruppo E.T.S. (Electronic Warfare Tactical Suppression) based in San Damiano, Piacenza. This plane was specially painted for the 60th anniversary of the 155 Gruppo and appeared in this scheme at the NATO Tiger Meet 2002 in Beja, Portugal.
The paint scheme is rather colourful and includes light blue on the forward third of the airframe, purple of the middle third of the airframe and wings and pink for the rear third of the airframe. For markings you have a big angry black panther with ferocious claws extended on both side of the tail doing a downward pounce. On both sides of the fuselage below the canopy there is artwork of a sunburned foot soldier or big game hunter carrying a rifle in a desert uniform that appears to be of WW2 vintage with palm trees in the background. There is also a full set of stencils and national markings included on the 3 small decal sheets.
