Probably as well to stretch the TSR2's wings. The full size was rumoured to have more wheel area than wing area!

Look forward to it.

Hi Tony. About stretching the TSR2 wings, according to the book by Damien Burke, there was a study for the big wing considered in January 1963 for a possible strategic version as the small and highly loaded wing was a drawback. Version 1 has increased span to 44.36 feet and leading-edge sweep was reduced to 58.5 degrees.

Total wing area 840 sq feet. (703 sq feet for standard wing - span 37.14 ft)

Version 2, Span increases to 51.80 feet, sweep reduced to 48 degrees and wing area increased to 980 sq feet.

Tailplane in each case was left unchanged. But the increased take off weights meant the tailplane’s authority is reduced.

In the end, the proposal was a dead end as the cost was mounting and quietly dropped.

I will send a PM of photos taken from the book.

Ooooh! I am genuinely excited! But surely you wouldn't have to stretch the wings if you did scale blown flaps...? laugh

Oh no. I just bought 3 fans/esc and canopies for the provost, hunter and gnat. Now I need another for the TSR2! I just can’t keep up Tony.
