Henry Kitcher Picked this one up to have something small to do between big projects. It looks good so far, though a couple of the decals are a little off and the brass photo-etched side skirts are slightly warped. Nothing too serious, though, and they seem like they'll be nice to build.
Munkyslut Your build experience is as interesting as the subject Henry, I'd hardly call it rough either
We've all had that one kit that we just despised (or destroyed .......dog toy?) but it just builds your experience!
I still think that TSR looks great!
Well, it's finally finished, and I can say that the 1/72 TSR-2 by Airfix is probably the worst kit I've had the displeasure of building. Every part felt like it came from a different kit (I used most of a tube of filler on it), parts fell off repeatedly (vertical stabiliser, horizontal stabilisers, landing gear doors), and it was just an absolute chore. While I think I made a good model of XR219, the only flying airframe, I was really limited by the quality of the kit.
I went into the build adoring the TSR-2. It was my favourite aeroplane at the time. It's the plane that killed the British aviation industry, and this is the kit that almost killed my passion for scale modelling. Am I exaggerating? Perhaps, but this kit really did take it out of me, and I'll be glad to build a better kit soon.

wilky It's a pity that you didn't build it with a fire cracker inside.
Then you could have enacted your revenge
