Ray Seppala (RayS)



View images (12): | | List

Well not strictly a straight TSR2 build. I am modernising it a 'little'. It will be an Australian Aircraft Consortium (AAC) SR(M)-2 (Strike Recce (Maritime)). Can you figure what other kits have gone into this yet? Also reconfiguring some other parts :)



This album is attached to project BAC TSR-2.

Ray Seppala Yep, and an S-3 tail. The nose has been modified since these pictures were taken. Will upload some new ones soon.

Barry Lloyd I see it's loaded with Sidewinder and Sparrow missiles, also the cockpit looks different - who knows what could have been if it hadn't been cancelled?

Glenn . Is that a matchbox F.3 Tornado nose grafted on to the TSR.2? interesting....

Ray Seppala I actually used an Airfix Tornado nose as I recall :) The now looks more RF-ish now.

Wim van der Luijt Nice...that new nose works well

Dutch No 1 or No 6 Sqn markings? Is that 1:48 F-18 u/c? Seems that an SR(M) with such beefed up u/s should have a Pave Tack pod and PGMs rather than AAMs. Certainly a couple of AAMs is appropriate, but do you have any "real" ordnance planned?

So far, my only planned "Whiffie" is an old FROG 1/72 AVRO Shackleton MR.3. Kit decals are garbage, so it's going to be either Aussie or Kiwi. Or possibly Canadian, if I can find enough lightning bolt stripe.

Ray Seppala Dutch, I was thinking this would be a 10 or 11SQN machine optimised for Maritime Strike, so it would carry, Harpoon, navalised version of SLAM-ER and mines. The u/c is from the kit with some mods modeled on the BAC Jaguar config. I really need to get back to this one I think :D

Dutch Hmm.. Assuming the TSR-2s were bought new, that would be quite a switch from P2V-7s to TSR-2s for Nos 10 & 11 Sqn. Carry on!

Dutch Looks like a Tornado F.3 nose, canopy & wing tanks.

Ray Seppala @Dutch, correct!

Dutch How's she coming along Ray?

Ray Seppala Haven't touched it in some time, I might have a build what is on the shelf for the rest of the year to clear some queens.

Dutch Ray, I am with you there brother! I have several shelf queens crowding everything else out right now. I do have one tribute Tonka build for a friend in the UK whose father is dying of cancer. I may go to old Blighty in Aug, so will have to move pretty quickly on that one, before getting back to the shelf queens. No rush, just curious.

Ray Seppala Thanks Dutch, I have just removed said model from the 'shelf' and am looking at what is left to do.
15. June 2019, 12:35
Dutch That's the spirit, Ray! Get 'er done!
15. June 2019, 14:16
Ray Seppala Did some work on this one this arvo, had to review where I was at and what was left to do. I will add some up to date photos to the album soon.
