    Product Description:
    In the second millennium the Earth has been exposed to the menace of approaching comets. To prevent the disaster by comet impact, the earth is protected by the TSR.2MS interceptor aircraft from a ground-based "Meteor Sweeper" group. She is lifted off by ZELL (Zero-length launch) like a surface-to-air missile, flying to mid-altitude using two jet engines and rockets equipped under the wings. She locks onto a meteorite and destroys it with a big missile.This is the story of the Stratos 4 series from Japan ? this is aircraft based on the TSR2 with added parts for the science-fiction TSR.2MS interceptor.The original TSR-2 model can also be built from this kit and it includes decals for the iconic prototype aircraft from the 1960s.
    From the Manufacturer
    Stratos 4 is an anime series by Studio Fantasia and Bandai Visual, and directed by Takeshi Mori. Originally spanning a 13-episode anime TV series, which premiered across Japan between January 5, 2003 to March 30, 2003, the series was continued onto three OVA-series sequels, the first of which was released on 28 May 2004 and spanned 2-episodes, followed by Stratos 4: Advance, which spanned 6 episodes and was released on 25 March 2005, and Stratos 4: Advance Kanketsu Hen, which was released on 22 September 2006 and spanned 2-episodes, respectively.

    The aircraft used in the anime span from the 1950s to the present day.

    Most aircraft are from the Cold War era, retrofitted with modern powerplants, avionics and flight control systems. The anime demonstrates well a hypothetical joint-use of American, European, Soviet and Japanese technologies for the common goal of shooting down meteor debris and protecting the Earth.

    Shimoji Island's main interceptor aircraft is a BAC TSR-2. 1:72 scale - Plastic scale model kit. Skill level 3 (where 1 is for the beginner and 4 is for the more experienced modeller). Dimensions length 377mm x width 157mm. Number of parts 134. Construction and painting required yes, glue and paints need to be purchased separately.
