And if Revell indeed render the Italeri kit redundant, it would make a great basis for a fixed wing GR.whatever.
Perhaps using the wings of a 1/100 F-15 as a starting place?  The thought had crossed my mind.

Assuming the UK, Italy and Germany all operate the Mirage F-1 and Mirage 2000 how about a larger more Bomberish Tornado.  An ADV nose profile with bigger engines (broader longer fuselage) and internal weapons bay, an F-111 / SU24 sort of aircraft.

Hmm!  possible (top pic), or even 1/72 F-18C wings (bottom pic)

How about TSR 2 wings?

I'm thinking that TSR.2 wings would be a touch on the large side, but not totally unsuitable.

More proportionate and scratch built  than a transfer of a 1/72 or 1/48 kit's parts.

Perhaps in 1/100, much like the F-15 wings I suggested?

Jaguar wings.  :icon_fsm:

I'm thinking that same-scale jaguar wings would be a bit small, being for a lighter airframe with less powerful engines.  I'm probably trim down some 1/48 Jaguar, or Mitsubishi T-2/F-1, wings until they looked "right" and use them if I wanted that planform.

My kits are 1:48 so scratch built wings...or modified F-15 wings from the Monogram kit.

For a 1/48 Tornado, 1/72 F-15 wings?  By the same  token, 1/72 TSR.2 wings?

Going the other way, I'm still considering using 1/48 Tornado wings and adjacent structure to do a V-G TSR.2 in 1/72 (probably carve up teh old Contrail vac-form for that).
