BAC TSR.2 - 1:144 Great Wall

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!

Small? certainly is against my 'What If' 1/48 Airfix TSR.2!

Thanks for looking,

Small against 1/48.... of course.... that is why it is called scale....

;)

 

But it is large compared to the Valiant, no?

By the way, both great models :thumbsup:

Hello,John - I'll address this reply to both your fine builds of the iconic 'TSR2'.

I love the clean 'classic' painting and finishing work.The quality of the crisp colour demarcation on the EPTS Scheme draws my eye particularly.

These are superb scale tributes to this legendary aircraft. 

😉👍 All the very best,Paul.

Excellent build – particularly good for 1/144. Your 1/48 TSR.2 looks stunning as well!

A nice model of an impressive aircraft - pity the politicians of the day got involved & caused its demise - like the shot with the Valiant too
