I'm trying to decide whether to deploy them extended or retracted on the Revell kit I'm currently working on. I plan to have the plane parked with canopy up. I have a feeling it would be more common to see them retracted, but are there enough recorded exceptions to justify having them down? What about just the slats down, but flaps up?

TIA

with wings fully opened it is more common to see Tornados with flaps down and slats up, or all down, but I have never seen them with slats down and flaps closed. When the wings are retracted both flaps and slats are closed and yo can only open the air-brakes on a parked Tornado.
