No.617 re-equipped with the Tornado GR.1 at RAF Marham in 1982, and upgraded to the GR.4 variant in 2002, with which it is current. The following year, the squadron commemorated its 50th anniversary by adorning one of its aircraft with special tail markings, which are faithfully reproduced on this model. ZA462 joined the RAF in 1982 and was initially delivered to No.15 Squadron at RAF Laarbruch, Germany, followed by service with Nos. 617 and 17 Squadrons, before being upgraded from a GR.1 to a GR.4 in 2002. In 2003, it was reissued to No.617 Squadron, who had relocated from RAF Marham, Norfolk to RAF Lossiemouth, Morayshire, where it is currently.
