1/48 pylons and refuelling probe
« on: March 14, 2013, 04:55:41 am »
Anyone know where I can get hold of some?  Every site I look at either has none left, or never had them.....Tbh, it's the probe I'm really after more than anything.

Master models from Poland makes the NATO probe in 1/48 - available from Hannants.


Never bought this item , however bought the 1/35 Master M2 Browning barrel with flash hider and the machining is superb !

What I meant was I want the entire bolt on housing that the TSR2 was meant to get, not just the probe tip.  I know there were firms making them, and I believe you can still get them in 1/72.

Our own Colin Frieghtdog does them in 1/72 in one of his TSR2 resin upgrades, but not sure if they're available in 'Big Scale'.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Yes, that's the problem. Since the "Manga" TSR was released, the only bits you can get are 1/72.  It's like the 1/48 one never existed  :angry:

Cammet did most of the whiffy 1/48 TSR.2 stuff IIRC and they stopped trading.  MasterCasters took over some of their range, although I can only find the Blue Water missile on their website (that would at least give you the pylons).  Might be worth contacting them to see if they have any spare stuff or plans to re-release sets.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I'm just trying to help.  As I said, contact them, they may have stuff laying around or be willing to split sets, some garage manufacturers are, some not.
