V/STOL versions
« on: March 12, 2014, 05:56:09 pm »
I used to own a copy of "Project Cancelled", but leant it to a friend never to be seen again. I did see a line drawing of a proposal for a TSR.2 V/STOL.
So I have come up with an idea to base it on the Yak-141 layout. I have both kits in 1/72 scale. Having read the comments of the experienced Whiffers when it comes to the Airfix undercarriage and air intakes perhaps parts from the Yak-141 could be used.

I do have another idea to use the Airfix "Space 1999, Hawk". This was the updated "Eagle"

I'd rather see the intakes and u/c as TSR.2 as possible.....alas you'd have a totally diferent aero and not really a VTOL TSR.2 !

The V/STOL versions are covered in Damien Burkes book.

should be interesting, the Yak-141 is about half the size of a TSR.2
