This is my latest TSR2 build.  Just for once I decided to actually build the one that flew.  The kit, as usual is the Airfix 1/48 kit, with all its inherent mistakes.
The only things I did was to insert a plastic shim under the panel between the forward section of the wings, to level it, and to drill and reinforce the pin that the main wheel bogies mount to, on the main legs (I drilled it out and fitted a cut down pin). I also cut down the pilots instrument panel and coaming, as it completely filled the windscreen....

Such a lovely looking aeroplane, and model too.  :thumbsup:
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

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

Very nice, regardless of all the excellent WHIFs about I still like the real world white colour scheme.

I'm currently building the 1/72  version but I will not achive this superb  level of build

Mostly harmless ...............


I did the 1/72 one after this (for the same customer) as XR220.  I much prefer the larger kit.
