Probably posted this in the Aircraft section, but not sure.

Airfix 1/48 TSR2, with all the changes that I know of that were to be applied to the production variant.
These are...
Pitot probe with bulb (Taken from a Jaguar GR.1)
Strike cameras fitted in 3 positions
Intake aux doors redesigned
Emergency "one shot" arrester hook
Under fuselage strakes
Added holes to the airbrakes

On top of this, I have smoothed down the over-exaggerated hump at the fuselage/wing join, scratch-built the instrument panels,  and added brake lines to the main U/C

Blue Waters are from Master Casters, but the pylons had to be deepened as the fins fouled the wings.  Outer pylons are from an F-35, with pods (baggage pods?) from my spares, modified into "rapid blooming windows" pods
Ladders are PE from Hannants (I forget who makes them)

Where did the belly tank come from please?

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

It's scratch built out of 2 tanks from B-20 Boston bombers
