Good afternoon everyone,

On Sunday I went to Cosford and picked up, among other things, an Airfix 1:72 TSR-2 and a Pit Road 1:144 TSR-2 "Strike Role".

So, seen as I'm planning on doing the 1:72 TSR-2 as my local Cosford example, I thought- why not utilise the 1:144 kit's belly fuel tank and martel missiles to create a "what-if" variant?

Based on other info on the internet: This is my interpretation of the TSR-2 GR4 as it could have served in the 1990-1 Gulf War. it is fitted with a targetting "pod" underneath the nose of the cockpit and a retractable refuelling probe on the side of the cockpit, as well as the 4 underwing pylons with Martel missiles.

-RBF tags and engine nozzle FOD covers made from paper

-Paint was mixed from a variety of Vallejo Air colours

-Decals from the Airfix Buccaneer
















(And the obligatory comparison with a 1p coin)

Thanks for having a look! Any comments are much appreciated. :)

Kind regards,

The good thing about 1/144 is you can fit even the bigger ones in a small box. ^_^

Especially like the "remove before flight" additions.

Which colours did you mix for the "desert pink" tone? :nerd:


Thanks :P

I used Vallejo Air- Red (71.102), White (71.001) and USAF Brown (71.125).I tend to mix quite a few pots of my own colours- I've now got the "desert pink" pot, the "RAF camo brown" pot, the "copper" pot, etc. It saves money and you can be sure that it will be the colour you want it to be.

Kind regards,
