  1. Calling this finished, but waiting for nose probe to arrive, then it's finished! Pitroad kit with Retrokit skybolts and chaff dispensers
  2. Scale: 1/48Manufacturer: AirfixPaint: Tamiya and Vallejo metalExtras: SAC metal undercarriage, coastal kits blurred runway Weathering: Dark dirt washDecals: OOB Shes rather a large model once built. Really struggled to get her on my photo background but did the best i could. No major problems with the build, just took longer than normal due to a house move. Had its first outing at the Milton Keynes show last weekend and had lots of positive comments. May bring it to Telford this year but will have to see nearer the time. Here she is in the photobay taking up lots of room! At the MK show with an admirer
  3. BAC TSR.2 1:144 Great Wall Hobbies I don't need to introduce this do I? I'll just say TSR.2, the peak of technological development, axed just as flight testing on XR219 got underway in 1965. 2 more (XR220 & XR221) were days from taking to the air and joining their sister. t looks like a beautiful and menacing looking bird of prey, and many avaiation enthusiast have a soft spot for it, including me. This is the Great Wall Hobbies 1:144 kit, which fits together beautifully and does full justice to one of my all time favourite aircraft. But it is small! With a Mikro Mir 1:144 Valiant for comparison Size reference - a standard UK Tamiya paint jar Small? certainly is against my 'What If' 1/48 Airfix TSR.2! Thanks for looking, John
  4. You can't have a WHIF without a TSR2. Sorry no kit bashing involved with this, but I will be using lots of spares from the box to build a Wild Weasel variant. The aim is to have a rotary bomb bay, alarms on the wings, ECM & chaff pods on the spine and so on. Also a new cammo wrap, possible to match the current MTP or a desert style with dark earth, mid stone. Oh yes and all in smashing 1/144. Thanks for looking, pictures to follow.
  5. On Sept 27th it will be the 50th anniversary of the first flight of the TSR2. To mark the occaision, Newark Air Museum will be holding a TSR2 day. I will be providing a potted "what-if" history of the service of the TSR2 Eagle and hopefully, some of it's alternatives. To this end, production has been scaled up. The first of the next 2 will be the GR.3 (LR). LR standing for Long Range, as this is one of the aircraft modified to be able to reach the Falkland Islands in 1982. I will be getting a head start with this as a friend donate 2 part built TSRs to my collection. The second is to be the last of the line. The heavily reworked VG, or variable geometry, swing wing.... Using my recently retired RN Tomcat F.1, I am cutting and trimming to get the wing mechanism and ramp intakes to fit.

    Airfix TSR2

    Hi folks,I dug out the two ships mentioned in chat but just not in a "ship" frame of mind so languishing in it,s box where it has been for two years was Airfix,s TSR2. with the early stages of it,s cockpit complete and all the major components off the sprue,s time to try and get her built,I was fortunate to visit Cosford a few years ago while working in Tamworth and I was in awe of the real thing still looking futuristic forty plus years after it,s last flight.

    BAe Eagle PR5

    Designed to penetrate Soviet airspace high and fast. Capable of over Mach 2.5 at altitudes of 80,000ft + Painted blue to blend in with the sky, it was affectionately called "Bluebird" by it's crew, as a nod to both the land speed record car and the American SR-71 Blackbird.

    Merlin GR3

    On the cancellation of the TSR2, the government placed an order for 50 F-111K bombers. Had we actually got them, here's what I think they would have looked like by the 80's. 7 Sqn was one of the units earmarked to receive them. XV 912 was within the range of serials set aside for the F-111K. Kit is the Academy one. It did fight me a bit, but went together ok.

    Hunter T.12

    I ummed and ahhd as to whether I should put this here or in the real world aircraft RFI, but here it is..... Still needs a couple of bits putting on, but for all intents and purposes, it's finished. For those that don't know, the t.12 was the aircraft that TSR2 crews were to do their conversion training on, then move onto the T.2 TSR2, if it got built. The T.12 was to have the "big bore" engine of the FGR9 and I believe the F6 had it too, but normal Hunter T-birds had the smaller bore. Also, a bulge on the nose houses TSR2 systems. The kit is the 1/48 Revell/Academy kit, with the Heritage Aviation T.7 Conversion. This nicely comes with a corrected exhaust and wheels. It is done in a What-if 237 OCU markings, using an Eagle with a mortar board hat.
  10. Hello fellow modellers. This is my first post in RFI, comments welcomed. All brush painted using Humbrol enamels, decals are a mix of the supplied kit ones & Fundecals 1/144 Vulcans. Enjoy the following pictures of surely what should have been instead of what if!
  11. Well, it's been a while since I last logged in and posted an update on my modelling. To be honest, I lost interest in modelling for the best part of a year and it's only since Christmas that I've been doing anything - slowly getting back into the swing of it. At the moment it's mostly finishing off stuff I couldn't face, back when the modelling urge left me and a number of fairly undemanding OOBs. The first to report is that TSR2 that I was working on (and had a hissy fit over...). Here she is in her glory,. Nothing like as classy as some of the other Britmodeller's TSR2's. I know, I know. I bodged the canopy something rotten, and the undercarriage doors shouldn't be open. I'm just happy to have finished it. The decals are Xtradecal of course...
