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to rising costs, in favour of purchasing the General Dynamics F-111, an "off-the-shelf" decision that itself was later rescinded as costs and development times skyrocketed.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.

  1. Wow! That's a beautiful airplane and a gorgeous model. Thank you for sharing your talent with us!

  2. @joy
    thanks friend, have fun here

  3. Cool model! i like the bomb bay details.

  4. Thanks for your model, Tekzo. It looks good!

  5. @kevin K and Jasper
    thanks friend, have fun ^^

  6. I am half way through building this model and I must say its looking relay goods so far!
    But this is my first paper model and I cant work out how you join C8 to B1.
    How do you join them?

  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,

    thanks for the question

  8. this is awesome.. thx for share bro.. ^^

  9. 這架飛機模型, 我也做出來了, 請看這裡:

  10. @donkeyeer
    nice built donkeyeer, love to see it...keep the good work

  11. Hi, trying to download the model. Unable to download from the 4shared site.



  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?

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

  14. Model looks very good. I cannot see how to download it - help please.
