BAC TSR-2 1:72




The British Aircraft Corporation TSR-2 was a cancelled Cold War strike and reconnaissance aircraft developed by the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) for the Royal Air Force (RAF) in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The TSR-2 was designed to penetrate a well-defended forward battle area at low altitudes and very high speeds, and then attack high-value targets in the rear with nuclear or conventional weapons. Another aspect of its combat role was to provide high-altitude, high-speed photo reconnaissance, requirements that necessitated incorporating "state-of-the-art" aviation technology that made it the highest-performing aircraft in these roles. Although only one prototype was completed, test flights confirmed that the aircraft would be able to meet its stringent design specifications.
The TSR-2 was the most visible victim of the Defence "White Paper" that, along with inter-service squabbling over Britain's future defence needs, led to the controversial decision to scrap the programme in 1965. With the election of a new government, the TSR-2 was ostensibly cancelled due to rising costs, in favour of purchasing the General Dynamics F-111, an "off-the-shelf" decision that itself was later rescinded as costs and development times skyrocketed. The interim replacements included the Blackburn Buccaneer and McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, both types being previously considered and rejected early in the TSR-2 procurement process. Eventually, the smaller swing-wing Panavia Tornado was developed and adopted by a European consortium to fulfill broadly similar requirements that the TSR-2 was already meeting during tests in 1965.

  7. first of all, after complete the fuselage (C8-C1) attached to A12 (first joint with B2), the A12 is inside B2, the flap C8 fold inside,

  12. Hello - Looking forward to building this model. However, this being my first foray into paper modeling I have a query. I've printed the pdf onto A4 80gsm paper - is this the correct size (seems to be from scaling) and would something stiffer be more suitable?

    yes it's the correct size, you can change about 80 gsm -120 gsm
