The TSR.2 is such a big bird that the SNEB pods look a little bit... undewhelming all alone in those pylons. Now, maybe if they were mounted in triplets on a TER (or whatever the British equivalent was called)... ;D

Nice work though, especially with the bomb bay.

They are not SNEB pods. I will have to take a few more pictures to show up a few details I think as they are actually UB-16-57 rocket pods. I will update the build information to say so as well.

My bad - should have looked more carefully. Still looking the part. ;)

Not a problem as its partly my fault for concentrating on overall pictures of the model and not adding any detail pictures of such things.

Hopefully the following pictures will make up for my previous omissions.

You can just make out the detail I added to the ejector seats as show in this picture





Its a little difficult to see that detail, but I assure you that you can see it, admittedly the angle that the light is at is a little tricky because you normally get some glare off the canopy.

Good job Alastair, knowing how much of a PAIN the TSR2 is to put together. And that scheme suits it really well too.  :thumbsup: :bow:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

Thanks Kit. I was getting despondent over it as it went together but its turned out nice as someone used to day. It's amazing what a coat of paint will hide and going through the build to the bitter end has taught me a lot about the fit of parts and where the problem areas are for the other eight I have in the stash.
